WHAT’S IT FOR?
- Relieve muscle soreness
- Increase circulation
- Flush out lactate
- Improve mobility
Created by a Physician BioEngineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed up recovery.
HOW IT WORKS: BIOMIMICRY PULSING
Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). 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, 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 NormaTec PULSE delivers 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
- Pre-workout: High-tech warm-up, promote blood flow 15-30 minutes
- Post-workout Recovery: Speed up muscle recovery, decrease muscle fatigue and stiffness 30-60 minutes
- Injury Rehab(Acute & Chronic)/Post-Op Rehab: Reduce edema, pain and stiffness; increase range of motion, prevent further injury; speed incisional healing 30-60+ minutes (in 1+ sessions per day)
