A Small Step with a Giant Purpose

The Function of the Calf Muscle Pump

StepIt™ was developed for one very important purpose......to stimulate and increase the Blood Circulation in the Legs.

Many conditions, some serious, are a direct result of poor blood circulation which may include:

  • Swollen ankles, feet or legs
  • Risk of blood clots (Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT))
  • Difficult wound healing process
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
  • Venous and arterial insufficiency caused leg ulcers

The Calf Muscle Pump

Often, the Calf Muscle Pump (CMP) is referred to as the body’s secondary heart.

It takes one (1) easy heartbeat to pump the oxygen rich blood from the heart to the lower leg and foot. However, it requires several strong heartbeats to force the blood back up to the heart.

This is where the CMP comes in to play. When it is active, it works as the body’s secondary heart and helps to propel the blood back to the heart.

However, the CMP works only when the leg is active and it is optimized during regular walking exercise. When the leg is resting, the CMP shuts down and the blood circulation is significantly reduced.

StepIt™ - the Calf Muscle Pump Booster!


StepIt™ was innovatively designed to simulate the true walking motion for those unable to exercise for any given time. StepIt™ promotes the full-cycle-walking-motion including the most important movement for the optimization of the CMP’s function, the heel rise motion.

The heel rise motion contracts the CMP which squeezes the veins and propels the venous blood back to the heart. Reversed flow (reflux) is prevented by the presence of one-way valves in the veins.

Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that StepIt™ will prevent blood clots (Deep Vein Thrombosis, DVT) or cure any other illness or symptoms.
