NormaTec Sequential Pulse Compression is a low-stress, rapid recovery solution for leg, hip and shoulder recovery. The patented dynamic system is found in elite athletic training facilities across the country and around the world. Using pneumatic air compression, the pump pressurizes the different compartments in the boot or sleeve combining three distinct massage compression patterns – pulsing, grading, and distal release. The intermittent compression mimics the muscle pump of the arms or legs mobilizing fluids and metabolites out of the limbs after intense use to speed recovery.
Originally developed for patients with severe circulatory and peripheral vascular disorders, NormaTec compression is now used in health, medical and athletic facilities. Research show recovery from sports injuries, Lymphedema, varicose veins and other circulatory conditions. NormaTec is used for pre and post workout, injury recovery, post-surgery rehab, and the reduction of swelling and inflammation. Compression has also been show to be good for anyone battling poor circulation as a result of diabetes, varicose veins, peripheral artery disease (deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism and edema are contraindicated). In addition to a more natural compression pattern, Sequential Pulse Technology functions in such a way to increase steady circulation of fluids, preventing back-flow of fluids into your feet.
When used before exercise, compression will warm up the muscles. Used after a workout, compression rejuvenates muscle tissue and dramatically reduces tightness and soreness. This acceleration of recovery allows athletes to train harder and perform better. As little as 20 minutes of treatment after a workout can greatly accelerate the soft tissue healing process. Though highly effective as an stand-alone method, NormaTec® can be combined with whole body cryotherapy to achieve an even higher level of soft tissue recovery and performance.
