Designed by a physician bio-engineer to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern employs compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery.
BENEFITS OF NORMATEC COMPRESSION THERAPY
Compression therapy has been used for decades in hospitals and clinics as a treatment to enhance circulation. NormaTec actually started as a medical device company to treat lymphedema (chronic swelling).
Recognizing the capacity to also treat athletes, NormaTec created a recovery device that provides incredible recovery benefits like:
Facilitating removal of lactic acid and other exercise-induced wastes
Preventing delayed-onset muscle soreness
Accelerating muscle recovery
Improving athletic performance
Facilitating enhanced flexibility and range of motion
Decreasing muscle fatigue after exercise
Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing).
The patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.
Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction.
Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE and PULSE PRO can deliver maximum pressure in every zone.
Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s normal circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology releases the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow.
By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.
