Normatec Compression Therapy
What is NormaTec Compression Therapy?
At Beyond Cryotherapy, our goal is to help you recover faster, so you can train harder. All of our Normatec systems are designed to help athletes recover faster and people rehab faster using compression therapy.
Beyond Cryotherapy provides the NormaTec Compression Therapy for the following body parts:
- Aid in Muscle Recovery
- Increase Flexibilty
- Promote the flow of nutrient rich blood to muscles
- Significantly Reducing Exercise-induced Swelling,
- Ameliorate Pain and Stiffness.
- Promote Flushing of Lactic Acid
How Does The NormaTec System Work?
Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD), the patented Sequential PULSE Technology uses 3 key techniques:
PULSING: Instead of using a squeezing strategy, NormaTec Compression uses a pulsing. Squeezing is a static compression whereas pulsing is a form of dynamic compression. Pulsing encourages the mobilization of fluids and metabolites out of the limbs after a heavy exercise routine.
The pulsing is a functional technique used to specifically important for anaerobic workouts involving heavy lifting, drop down sets, sprints, or speed work because it helps to move lactic acid out of the muscles and into the bloodstream for faster recovery.
GRADIENTS: Mimicking the natural gradient of blood flow the NormaTec Sequential PULSE Technology holds pressure in a systematic way to prevent blood and fluids from being forced in the wrong direction to maximize proper recovery throughout different zones per body part.
DISTAL RELEASE: The NormaTec PULSE Technology is designed to hold and release pressure in each zone sequentially to allow for a temporary rest from compression amongst each zone per body part. This patented release is designed to work with the body’s natural blood flow gradient to maximize circulation and recovery.
