NormaTec is the ultimate recovery device. The technology can increase circulation and improve mobility for those who work out regularly, are training for a competition or race, experience swollen legs from traveling frequently, stand for long hours on the job, or suffer from inflammation, muscle pain, or other circulatory issues. NormaTec is used extensively in professional athletics and is utilized for both rehab and recovery by 97% of pro teams, as well as Olympic and elite athletes across a broad spectrum of sports. The NormaTec PULSE Series is a pneumatic compression device that utilizes patented technology to increase circulation to the limbs. NormaTec was founded by a physician and bioengineer as a medical company to help treat circulatory conditions. They later worked directly with top athletic programs to develop the NormaTec PULSE Series. Using NormaTec’s leg, arm, or hip attachments boosts blood flow and reduces pain and soreness. In addition to these benefits, studies show that NormaTec decreases inflammation, clears metabolites, and increases range of motion. NormaTec pairs compression with a sophisticated massage pattern, employing three key forms of biomimicry, including pulsing (mobilizes fluid), gradients (prevent backflow), and distal release (enhances circulation).
The patented pulsing action uses dynamic compression, effectively mimicking the muscle pump of the legs and arms, to greatly enhance the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs. NormaTec utilizes hold pressures similar to the one-way valves of veins and lymphatic vessels, preventing fluid backflow, and enhancing the natural circulatory flow. The distal release feature releases hold pressures once they are no longer needed, ensuring that each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.
Using Normatec’s full-length leg, arm, or hip compression attachments rejuvenates muscle tissue and dramatically reduces tightness and soreness. When used as part of a rehabilitation/movement protocol, Normatec helps to speed recovery, reduce pain, improve function, and increase patient satisfaction.
When combined with PEMF, Redlight and HBOT synergistic results can be achieved enhancing the outcome.
