Normatec Compression

NormaTec is an innovative technology that uses air pressure massage to relieve muscle aches and/or pain and to temporarily increase circulation to the treated areas. 

There are devices that attach to the arms, hips and legs. These are sophisticated systems that effectively mimic the natural motions of the arms and legs to remove metabolites and fluids from the limbs after intense activity.

The pulsing movements are helpful for preventing injuries and accelerating recovery time.

Before exercise, the NormaTec acts as a high-tech massage to warm up your muscles. 

Pre-workout sessions are generally 10 to 20 minutes long with a moderate intensity level.

Using the NormaTec Recovery System after intense exercise will significantly speed up your recovery process, allowing you to train harder and perform better.

Normatec has been named by Runner’s World magazine's editors as the
"best after-running technology to help runners recover."

making it popular amongst professional athletes looking for an edge in their recovery time and helping prevent injuries.

The Boston Red Sox team up with NormaTec to add a Recovery Room Powered by NormaTec to both Fenway Park in Boston and JetBlue Park at Fenway South.

The benefits of NormaTec Pulse include enhanced blood flow and dynamic compression that ensures that fluids leave the limbs after intense workouts.

How Does Normatec Compression Work?

Unique High-tech compression:

This unique pneumatic waveform, which is exclusive to NormaTec products, is designed to externally compress the limbs in a way that mimics normal physiology, featuring a sophisticated pulsing, gradient, and distal release compression pattern.

Initially developed for medical patients with severe circulatory and peripheral vascular disorders, the NormaTec Recovery System is now the most effective recovery tool for athletes who want maximum performance recovery.

“Dynamic Compression Enhances Pressure-to-Pain Threshold in Elite Athlete Recovery: Exploratory Study” by William A Sands

From the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research 2015 May; 29(5):1263-72

“The purpose of this study was to assess peristaltic pulse dynamic compression (PPDC) in reducing short-term pressure-to-pain threshold (PPT) among Olympic Training Center athletes after morning training. […] We conclude that PPDC is a promising means of accelerating and enhancing recovery after the normal aggressive training that occurs in Olympic and aspiring Olympic athletes.”
