WHAT IS NORMATEC
NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery—our systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, trainers and YOU.
The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. All of our systems use NormaTec's patented PULSE technology to help you recover faster between trainings, after performance events or every day life.
They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery. When you use our systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.
Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern employs three key techniques to maximise 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.
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 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.
NORMATEC LEG ATTACHMENT
The NormaTec leg is a full-coverage attachment for the entire leg. It features overlapping zones that guarantee gapless compression, high-quality nylon, and hassle-free integrated tubing. Compatible with the NormaTec PULSE and PULSE PRO recovery systems.
NormaTec quick release connector. Compatible with the NormaTec PULSE and PULSE PRO recovery systems. Securely and easily snaps into the NormaTec hose. Connects with an audible click so you always know you've made a perfect connection.
NormaTec compression zones—each zone overlaps with adjacent zones to guarantee gapless compression. Custom molds to your unique body shape every time.
INDICATIONS FOR USE
The NormaTec Recovery System is an air pressure massage indicated to temporarily relieve minor muscle aches and/or pains and to temporarily increase circulation to the treated areas.
RISKS AND BENEFITS OF THE NORMATEC RECOVERY SYSTEM
The risks and benefits of using the NormaTec Recovery System are the same as having a massage. If the pressure feels uncomfortable, you can reduce the intensity or stop the session. Similar to a massage, the benefits can include the temporary relief of minor muscle aches and pains. It can also temporarily increase circulation in the area being massaged.
