From professional triathletes to weekend warriors around the globe, athletes are now tapping into the power of compression to help them recover faster – and recovery boots are a way to turn the recovery power of compression up to lightning speed.
If you've ever felt heavy legs the day after a tough workout, or been frustrated during a race, a run, a ride or leg training workout because you simply couldn't tap into your full potential and go as fast and hard as you desired, then these boots are the ultimate solution.
So if you've ever wished your legs could feel light as a feather the day after a hard run or workout, even without a spendy full body massage, then keep reading.
NormaTec founder Gilad Jacobs is a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) who recognized the powerful potential of external dynamic compression and its crucial role in healing and recovery. Even though the concept of using external compression to aid the body with its normal circulatory processes has been around since the 1960s, the science of compression had no major technological advances during the first 40 years of its use.
After trying every available compression pump on the market with only unimpressive clinical results, Gilad realized that the key to advancing the technology of external compression is to improve the actual massage pattern. So he developed and patented something called “Sequential Pulse Technology”, and the NormaTec Recovery System was born.
So how are the Normatecs different than other recovery boots you may see out there?
The key is something called “Sequential Pulse Technology”, which is based on normal physiology and replicates the blood pumping action of veins in your legs, arms and torso, but turns it up a notch to flush out your legs very quickly. The technology synergistically combines three distinctive massage techniques to speed the bodys normal recovery process.
1) Pulsing: Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). This mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolic waste out of the limbs after a workout.
2) Gradients: Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent backflow of fluid. Using this same type of action, Sequential Pulse Technology utilizes gradient hold pressures to keep your bodys fluids from being forced down toward your feet by the pulsing action in proximal zones. Because of this enhancement, Sequential Pulse Technology can deliver maximum pressure throughout the entire limb and the effectiveness of the pulsing action is not diminished near the top of the limb.
3) Distal release: Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to your bodys normal circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology releases the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of your limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.
Whether you're a runner, CrossFitter, triathlete, cyclists, weekend warrior or exercise enthusiast, wearing NormaTecs full-length leg compression boots before or after an intense workout can help rejuvenate your muscle tissue and dramatically reduce tightness and soreness, which means less downtime and greater productivity.
The NormaTec Pulse Recovery System includes a portable, lightweight control unit with seven digitally selected intensity levels, sending up to 100 mmHg of compression into the integrated tubing of the nylon leg boots. The process mirrors natural occurring waveform flows and recovery processes in your own body, and works painlessly while you rest.
When you click here to get your Normatec Pulse Recovery System, you'll see that the complete recovery system includes:
-Easy-to use control unit interface
-7 compression levels up to 100 mmHG
-Lightweight (6 lbs) with built-in handle for easy portability
-Universal electrical compatibility, external 12V 5A power supply
-Full-length leg coverage compression boots with overlapping segments for balanced compression of entire leg
-Made from durable nylon and rugged construction
-Convenient zipper for quick removal and easy cleaning
-Compression tubing already fully integrated into boots
-Two year warranty on the control unit and a one year warranty on all other system components.
-Sizing options for athletes of all shapes and sizes
No matter how hard you train, you will eventually recover from an intense workout. But would you rather wait three to seven days, or would you rather be ready to rumble the next day because you used the Sequential Pulse Technology found only in a NormaTec Pulse Recovery System. Using these boots for just 15-20 minutes can massively speed recovery – and you can simply pull them on while you're sitting around the house, office, gym…or even the airplane!
The result is that your legs feel light as a feather, even after the most difficult of workouts.
