Normatec Recovery System was created by a Physician (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed up recovery times. Normatec utilizes three specific massage patterns for optimal results:
- Pulsing: Instead of static compression (wraps or squeezing) to move stagnant fluid out of the legs, Normatec technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). The Normatec patented pulsing action more efficiently moves fluid and metabolites from the legs to increase the bodies natural fluid dynamics and increase the rate at which you can heal.
- Gradients: Unlike arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels have one way valves to prevent the backflow of fluid, and require the movement of muscles to push the fluid in the correct direction. Normatec Pulse Technology holds pressure specifically in each section to force the fluid out of the legs without any backflow. This allows the fluid to get out of the lower limbs more effectively, in less time.
- Distal Release: Because extended amounts of time with static pressure (squeezing without releasing) can cause damage to the bodies natural circulatory system, the Normatec Recovery System will release pressure in different sections when they are not needed to prevent backflow. This allows each section to get maximum rest time in between compression cycles.
The ability of the Normatec Recovery System to speed up healing times can be used for patients with low back pain, sciatica, hip pain, knee pain, foot and ankle injuries, post surgical rehab, and much more.
