What is Normatec?
Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern employs three key techniques to maximize your recovery:
PULSING: Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). Our 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.
GRADIENTS: 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.
DISTAL RELEASE: 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.
WHAT DOES IT TREAT?
Compression Therapy is a fundamental
treatment used to help with:
- Pre and Post Workout - recover at a more accelerated rate and increase performance
- Injury Recovery – Focuses on both acute and chronic injuries and areas of pain
- Post-Surgery Rehab – accelerate the healing process and decrease down time
COMPRESSION THERAPY CAN ALSO BE USED TO TREAT THE FOLLOWING MEDICAL CONDITIONS:
- Wounds that are slow to/will not heal
- Lymphatic system issues
- Varicose Veins
- Any circulation-related conditions where there is swelling in the limbs
