Our goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of every athlete’s training, and we feel NormaTec systems are one of the best rapid recovery modalities to accomplish that. NormaTec's patented PULSE technology helps athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance!
Instead of using static compression (Squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (Pulsing). Pulsing more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after intense exercise or performance.
Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, Normatec 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 pulse technology can deliver 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.
