Dragons’ Den: Where You Can Buy RBR Legflow ‘Saving’ Product
An entrepreneur with a “life-saving” product has won the support of a dragon in Dragon’s Den tonight.
Cambridgeshire’s Paul Westerman presented his product to dragoons Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones, Touker Suleyman Sara Davies and new dragoon Steven Bartlett.
He was hoping for a £50,000 investment for 15% equity for his RBR Legflow product – a device to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Paul told a heartbreaking story of how he collapsed and nearly died after suffering a “massive bilateral pulmonary embolism”.
He explained that he injured his knee a few weeks prior and it unknowingly resulted in a DVT in his right leg.
Paul said nervously, “I survived of course…thankfully.”
His product helps increase blood flow to the legs to reduce the chances of developing deep vein thrombosis.
Dragon Peter Jones admitted he understood how important the product could be as he ended up in hospital after a long flight due to not moving for a long time. He said since he moved his legs all the time and knew that could be a real problem.
He said: “I think it’s a good product that you’ve developed. It could be used in airlines and of course in care homes – very, very important.”
So it was surprising when he chose not to invest.
While Deborah Meaden wanted to know what Paul had done to copyright his product, and Steven Bartlett thought the product couldn’t compete with modern technology, Touker Suleyman still seemed interested.
He believed the entrepreneur needed a chance to show his product to the right people, including the NHS and airlines, as he said: “I’m ready to explore the unknown.”
He offered the £50,000 for 35% equity rather than the 15% and Paul replied, “I am more than happy with those terms and would love to work with you.
Fans on Twitter were thrilled to see that the businessman had received much-needed help from a dragon.

Where can you buy RBR Legflow?
The Legflow device that was seen on Dragon’s Den is from RBR Active Limited.
It can be purchased from the RBR Active website for £12.99 and is a reusable product.
The product is also available on Amazon.
What does the RBR Legflow do?
The RBR Legflow device is clinically tested to significantly increase blood flow to the lower extremities.
Through three simple exercises, the RBR Leg Flow improves blood flow to the lower extremities by more than 10 times, helping to minimize the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.
The website describes it as follows: “The RBR Legflow is very effective where long periods of inactivity are unavoidable.
“This can include traveling on a plane, working in an office, being hospitalized, playing online, recovering from surgery or simply if you spend a lot of free time sitting still.
“The RBR Legflow is a small medical device that rests on the floor under the foot, incorporating two separate round domes with patented Nodules®, each large enough to accommodate the user’s foot.”
