About our project



Do you have tired, achy legs? Swollen ankles? Pain from walking?

You Are Not Alone

There are 68 million Americans who suffer from poor circulation in the lower legs. It is a prevalent and growing problem in today’s aging, increasingly sedentary, and obese population. In laymen’s terms the problem is simply that blood has an easy time going down the legs and a harder time coming back to the heart.

Sit and Circulate

Our device, the CV2, is a non-fatiguing, non-invasive device that will greatly improve circulation without significant changes in your vital signs. It not only helps venous but arterial circulation, allowing blood and oxygen to be present in all parts of the lower leg.

The CV2 was designed to improve circulation into and out of the lower extremities. It is non-fatiguing, non-invasive and will not make you breathe hard, sweat, or increase your heart rate.

How It Works

The CV2 is a simple way to improve your quality of life. By assisting you, the user, with gentle ankle movement, the CV2 engages your calf muscles which contract and promote circulation. It is nearly effortless and very comforting to use while seated in your favorite chair.

You do not even need to leave the comfort of your house!

The CV2 provides users with a comfortable way to improve their quality of life and helps with activities of daily living limitations. By using the CV2 for 15 minutes, users will achieve the same number of “calf pumps/compressions” as walking 1 ½ miles. Use the CV2 and see for yourself.

Read for yourself how it has already helped patients and won awards for being an innovative product helping a range of patients, from those patients with a sedentary lifestyle or limited mobility, to those that are athletes and wellness-driven.

The Power of the CV2 Device

Poor venous circulation can result in Deep Vein Thrombosis, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Chronic Venous Insufficiency, Restless Leg Syndrome, and Edema.

Even sitting for long periods while working can negatively effects your lower body circulation!

The body compensates for this problem with a mechanism in the lower leg, which is commonly referred to as the “Calf Pump” and “Second Heart”. Activation of the Calf Pump through activities such as walking and running serves to assist blood flow returning to the heart. But, people who are unable to be active or have serious medical conditions may not sufficiently activate the Calf Pump. Many people cannot or will not exercise regularly and suffer the consequences.

Now there is an easy way to get relief from many debilitating conditions related to poor lower leg circulation.

Not only is there a physiological benefit but a psychological one as well since the patient can actually successfully perform the tasks recommended.

Athletes have found that using the CV2 before and after exertion helps them loosen up and to cool down.

Those with sedentary occupations can help their circulation while working at their desks and those with limited mobility can do so while working, reading, and watching television.

We Have Proof of the Amazing Effects

Our research has shown a dramatic increase in circulation, a reduction in swelling and a reduction in pain in the legs. GO2 has had two articles published in peer reviewed medical journals and a poster presented at a surgical conference. The articles and poster presentation highlighted the increase in circulation while using the CV2. The articles were published in the Journal of Diagnostic Sonography and The American Surgeon. An edema (swelling) and pain study of the legs have also been completed. In both cases, the CV2 aided in the reduction of edema and pain after a short session.

Our Team

Jim Hundley and Dr. James D. Hundley Sr. started GO2 to create the CV2 device in 2010. We have raised over $460,000 to date to design the best possible CV2 device. We are raising capital to build the necessary tooling to produce the units for sale.
