What is NormaTec Compression Therapy?
NormaTec is commonly used to help with areas of poor circulation, whether it is from a tough workout resulting in pain and inflammation or from an injury or post-surgical inflammation. NormaTec helps to break up the lactic acid that builds up in the muscle. The compressed air massages your limbs, mobilizes fluid, and helps with speed recovery.
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). 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.
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 the wrong direction. Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE 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.
