If you haven’t tried our Normatecs you need to. For as how hard we push ourselves in the gym, you need to spend time to recover as well. Foam rolling and stretching should be part of your daily routine either at home or at the gym. The Normatecs are a great recovery tool to have that should be utilized as often as possible. If you’re not sure what to expect, think of the Normatec as a big blood pressure cuff that inflates at different places to control blood flow. Here’s some of the science of how it works.
Pulsing Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing).
Gradients 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.
Distal Release 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.
