NormaTec recovery system
The NormaTec recovery system helps maximize recovery for both athletes and non athletes. Using a patented PULSE system, the NormaTec system combines three massage techniques which speed up the body’s normal recovery process and flush out lactic acid: pulsing compression, gradients and distal release.
What are NormaTec compression therapy benefits?
- Quicker muscle recovery
- Increased flexibility
- Promotes the flow of nutrient rich blood to muscles
- Reduces exercise-induced swelling
- Reduces pain and stiffness
- Promotes flushing of lactic acid
What areas can be treated?
The NormaTec recovery system can be used for the following body parts:
How does the NormaTec system work?
Created by a physician bioengineer (MD. PhD) the patented PULSE system uses 3 techniques:
Pulsing: Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, the NormaTec system uses dynamic compression (pulsing). The pulsing helps move lactic acid from the muscle into the bloodstream for faster recovery.
Gradients: Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. The NormaTec system mimics this by using hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction.
Distal Release: The NormaTec system is designed to hold and release pressure in each zone sequentially to allow each portion of the limb to have maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.
