Normatec Compression Boots Q & A
What are NormaTec compression boots?
NormaTec’s Leg Recovery System uses the latest technology to increase blood circulation and reduce fatigue and pain in your legs that results from workouts and training.
NormaTec PULSE 2.0 technology features an external control unit connected to specially designed leg attachments. These fabric attachments wrap comfortably around your legs from feet to hips and use compressed air to massage these areas. This massage action boosts blood circulation to help you recover faster and more efficiently from your workouts.
The system features customizable pressure settings to meet your needs and boost your recovery time.
What can I expect during a session using NormaTec compression boots?
The NormaTec system uses a patented method of massage to safely move fluid and metabolites in and out of your limbs, giving you a refreshed feeling in your legs in as little as 30 minutes.
The compression boot technology starts with a pre-inflate cycle where the boots mold to your leg shape and size. Once complete, compression begins in your feet and the massaging air continues up your leg. The system kneads your legs in segments, first using a pulsing pattern, then a release.
This pulsing action is beneficial for compressing fluids and metabolites out of your legs in a similar fashion to your natural muscle function, ensuring more fluid is removed with each treatment. This technology also prevents fluids from flowing backward into your veins, further enhancing your natural blood circulation.
What are the benefits of NormaTec compression boots?
By using the NormaTec compression boot system, you can expect to recover faster from an intense workout or during your recovery from a muscle injury due to training or an accident.
Physical therapists Billy Reilly and Paul LaRosa may also recommend using NormaTec compression boots as part of your warm-up routine before engaging in sports or your training. This keeps your muscles healthy and blood flowing properly to reduce your risk for injuries, muscle fatigue, and post-workout pain.
