Compression therapy has been pivotal in the fitness industry for many years. Professional athletes and active gym members’ alike have been using compression therapy to speed up their muscle recovery time.
But what makes compression therapy special?
Dynamic air compression effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout. Created by a physician bioengineer, the Normatec compression line combines dynamic air compression with a patented pulse massage pattern that employs three key techniques—pulsing, distal release, and gradients. These techniques help to relieve muscle aches, pain and temporarily increase circulation resulting in increased flexibility and range of motion, injury prevention, and accelerated recovery time.
Compression therapy is not just for athletes and active gym goers. Normatec compression boots have a wide-variety of benefits fit for any lifestyle, including:
- Improved Circulation
Normatec compression boots employ a patented pulse technology that comfortably squeezes your limbs at intervals, improving blood circulation and treating venous insufficiencies like pain, swelling, varicose veins and even ulcers. This is perfect for those who sit or stand for long periods of time and pregnant women who suffer from swelling feet.
- Decreased Recovery Time
Compression therapy helps your body detox inflammation and eliminates lactic acid from your limbs over the course of one session. A process that usually takes your body several hours or even days to accomplish can be reduced to just a few hours of recovery time, perfect for any active lifestyle, including athletes with intense training regimens.
- Enhanced Lymphatic Drainage and Waste Removal
Lactic acid build-up fatigues the muscle pre-maturely, meaning it is important to try and flush lactate from your muscles post-workout. As compression boots improve blood flow and circulation following a workout, lactic acid is removed from the muscle faster. This reduces fatigue of the muscle and improves recovery.
