NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery—their systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. Recovery should be viewed as an integral part of every athlete’s training. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery System is a dynamic compression device designed for recovery and rehab. It utilizes NormaTec’s patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between training and after a performance.
The NormaTec PULSE Recovery System includes a control unit and attachments for the legs. They use compressed air to massage your legs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with their patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. Your first experience when using the system will be a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet and working up to your quads and hamstrings. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your legs.
The NormaTec PULSE Recovery System is used by collegiate and professional teams, CrossFit boxes and endurance athletes. NormaTec works with USA Triathlon, USA Cycling and IRONMAN. Here at Performance Stretch Therapy, we use the NormaTec PULSE Recovery System as part of our Athletic Recovery Services.
