Normatec Compression Therapy

The NormaTec Compression Therapy system is a dynamic compression device designed for recovery and rehabilitation. The system uses compressed air to massage limbs, mobilize lymphatic fluid, and speed recovery. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the NormaTec system will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release.

Compression Therapy is a patented Sequential Pulse Technology that combines three distinct massage techniques – Pulsing, Gradient Hold, and Distal Release – in order to speed the body’s recovery process. The pulsing action of the equipment mimics the muscle pump of the legs, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after intense use. The gradient hold utilizes constant pressure to keep the body’s fluids from being forced to one end of the limb while the pulsing continues. The distal release prevents any back flow of fluids by releasing the hold pressures in each zone as soon as possible allowing each limb to gain maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

Comfortable compression sleeves that enclose legs or low back/hips, give a deep, relaxing massage and rolling sensation that aid in recovery from training, competition, and injury.
