HOW DOES NORMATEC COMPRESSION THERAPY WORK?
The Normatec Pulse compression device consists of two attachments that fit over the arms or legs like sleeves or leggings. When these attachments are being fitted to your limbs, a pre-inflated cycle will allow the device to adjust to your natural contours to give you the most personalized therapy. With the use of Normatec’s patented PULSE technology, compressed air is then circulated through the attachments to deliver massaging action that helps mobilize bodily fluids that aid in recovery. Whether you want to use these compression attachments on a single arm or leg or both, the therapy can be customized to your liking. Massage pressure levels can be adjusted with the control unit.
At the beginning of your treatment session, the attachments will begin compressing your hands, feet or upper quads (depending on where the attachments are fitted) to deliver gentle massaging action that will help put you into a more relaxed state while aiding in muscle recovery. After a brief period, the compression will be released and move up to other parts of your limbs to continue massaging them in a kneading-like fashion.
In addition to being useful for athletes and workout aficionados, Normatec can be beneficial for people with certain medical conditions who are looking for safer, more effective ways to reduce the chances of complications. The device is especially useful for people who are more susceptible to lymphedema, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other swelling and blood circulation complications.
Normatec is so reliable that it has been used by athletes competing in competitions sanctioned by USA Triathlon and the Ironman U.S. Series. The BMC Racing Team, which often rides in the Tour de France, has also given Normatec excellent reviews and continues to rely on its therapeutic benefits.
Benefits of Using Normatec
Normatec solves the problem of prolonged post-workout recovery periods and excessive muscle fatigue after a hard training session. NormaTec can improve athletic performance and help you set a new PR. The reduced pain, soreness and swelling that results from using Normatec can also be helpful for older people and other individuals who are more prone to certain medical conditions that increase fluid retention and the chances of dangerous blood clots or strokes. This device can act as your own personal massage therapist while covering larger muscle groups more comprehensively than what human hands are capable of doing. A small handheld screen is included to make adjusting massage pressure levels easier.
