How it works
NormaTec compression devices use their patented PULSE technology to reduce muscle soreness and improve circulation. NormaTec was created by a physician bioengineer to enhance blood flow, allowing for a speedy recovery. The pulsing pattern utilizes three techniques that allow you to fully recover:
Pulsing: These compression devices are different from the standard device because they don’t use static compression, or squeezing. Instead, NormaTec use a pulsing action that mirrors the muscle pump of the legs and arms. As a result, the fluid and metabolites will leave your limbs faster after an intense workout.
Gradients: The veins and lymphatic vessels in our bodies have valves that stop fluid backflow. Much like the body, NormaTec devices hold pressure levels in order to keep the fluids from being sent in the wrong direction. So instead of tapering the pressure, the devices deliver complete pressure to every area of the limbs.
Distal Release: Static pressure on the body can be harmful to its circulatory flow, therefore NormaTec compression devices maintain the pressure once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow. When the pressure is released, each zone in the limb receives maximum rest time with no need for an extensive pause during cycles.
So the next time you’re feeling sore after your game, training session, workout, or run, be sure to schedule a compression session.
