The geko™ device is indicated for the prevention and treatment of oedema. The aim of this study is to show that recruiting, and performing study assessments in ankle fracture patients requiring surgery to fix their ankle attending the James Cook Hospital is feasible, and to obtain data to support the powering of a larger study to demonstrate the effectiveness of the geko™ device at reducing length of stay for this population of patients. This study will also allow us to assess the acceptability, tolerability and compliance of treatment with the geko device.

The aim of this pilot study was to assess venous flow parameters in patients following total hip arthroplasty, comparing an intermittent pneumatic compression foot device with a portable n...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether neuromuscular electrostimulation (NMES) will decrease ICU-associated weakness. The investigators believe that twice-daily NMES will imp...
Eight weeks, comprised of four weeks Run-in Phase of Standard Care (SC) treatment followed by four weeks of treatment allocated by randomisation (Treatment Phase). To compare two daily ge...
This study is designed to look at the effect of the geko device on the circulation in lower limbs of participants with venous leg ulcers.
To verify whether X-ray combined with MRI is able to carry out correct fracture classification and postoperative evaluation in patients with ankle fractures.
Retrograde transplantar intramedullary nailing (TIMN) is a recently described option for ankle fracture in elderly patients with multiple comorbidity contraindicating classical internal fixation. The ...
Abnormal movement patterns and neuromuscular impairments at the ankle are thought to contribute to ankle joint degeneration in those with chronic ankle instability. However, these impairments are not ...
Ankle sprains are common and potentially disabling musculoskeletal injuries that often lead to chronic ankle instability (CAI). CAI has been linked to impairments in postural and neuromuscular control...
Pediatric ankle injuries are common, giving rise to ∼17% of all physeal injuries. An os subfibulare in a child with an ankle sprain may be confused with a type VII transepiphyseal fracture. Here, we...
Ankle fractures are among the most common lower limb fractures. Associations between postoperative radiographic results and clinical outcome have been found, but less is known about the relevant ankle...
The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
There are two lateral ligaments of the ankle - internal and external. The internal lateral ligament is attached to the apex and anterior and posterior bodies of the inner malleolus and inserted into the navicular bone, the inferior calcaneo-navicular ligament, the sustentaculum tali of the os calcis, and the inner side of the astragalus. The external lateral ligament, also called the lateral collateral ligament, consists of three distinct fasciculi - the calcaneofibular, the anterior talofibular, and the posterior talofibular.
Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.
Internal devices used in osteosynthesis to hold the position of the fracture in proper alignment. By applying the principles of biomedical engineering, the surgeon uses metal plates, nails, rods, etc., for the correction of skeletal defects.
A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
