NormaTec is a dynamic recovery system that includes an air compressing control unit and attachments for the legs, arms, or hips. Each session involves sequential and pulsating compression, enhancing blood flow and lymphatic fluid removal.
This technology helps athletes reduce muscle fatigue and accelerates healing between trainings and intense exercise, and is also beneficial for those at risk of circulation and swelling issues such as lymphedema and deep vein thrombosis!
When using NormaTec, you will begin by feeling a pre-inflate cycle, during which the attachment is molded to your exact body shape. The session will then start by compressing your feet, hands, or hips (depending on which attachment you are using) and begin NormaTec’s patented Sequential Pulse Technology. The process feels like a tight, but comfortable squeeze. Each segment of the attachment will first compress and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the pattern works its way up your limb.
Decreases Muscle Fatigue
Increases Range of Motion
NormaTec Compression Therapy is FDA approved to treat lymphedema and other edematous conditions. It is also approved to prevent deep vein thrombosis.
PULSING action mimics the muscle pump of the arms or legs, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid. 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. 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.
