Bring those legs back!! The NormaTec Recovery System helps maximize recovery for both athletes and non-athletes. Maximizing circulation throughout your body and moving metabolic waste out of your limbs helps reduce muscle soreness and promotes faster recovery. Our NormaTec gear is comprised of a control unit, and separate attachments that can go either on the legs, hips, or arms. The attachments use compressed air in a dynamic compression pattern to massage tissue, mobilize fluid, improve circulation, and speed recovery.
The pulsing compression simulates the “muscle pump” of the limbs, 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 directional of flow occurring in the venous and lymphatic one-way valves produces fluid movement similar to that seen in peristalsis. The distal release prevents back flow of fluids by releasing the hold pressures in each zone, allowing each limb to gain maximal rest time without significant pause between compression cycles.
