The most important element for effective compression is the massage pattern. NormaTec’s founder, Laura F. Jacobs, MD, PhD, a physician bioengineer, realized this fundamental principle when she developed and patented the Sequential Pulse Pneumatic Waveform. Unlike more simplistic compression patterns, NormaTec Pulse Technology is based on normal physiology, and it synergistically combines three distinctive massage techniques to speed the body’s normal recovery process: pulsing compression, gradients, and distal release. Through these mechanisms, the NormaTec Recovery System maximizes circulation throughout the body to help you train harder, recover faster, and perform better.
We recommend using your NormaTec session within a few hours after exercise to expedite your recovery process. Post-workout recovery sessions are generally anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes long with a moderate to high intensity level.
The process feels like a massage or tight squeeze working its way up from the bottom to top of the sleeve. It is not painful and the pressure level can be adjusted to accommodate everyone’s needs. It is very relaxing in our private room with your own TV to watch Netlix.
No, there is no temperature change. NormaTec uses only compressed air to compress the sleeves.
We recommend not using it if you have any open wounds stitches or skin rash on the area (thigh to toes) of the body that will be inside of the sleeve. NormaTec should not be used on the area of a broken bone or fracture.
