The Normatec sequential compression units are an excellent modality to help reduce inflammation, edema / swelling and remove lactic acid from sore muscles.
Normatec helps you recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation.
Pulsing: sequential pulse technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing) to mimic the muscle pump of the legs, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.
Gradients: Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid back flow.Normatec uses pulse technology to hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction.
Distal Release: Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology releases the hold pressured once they are no longer needed to prevent back- flow. 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.
