Compression. The NormaTec Recovery Systems

NormaTec was founded in 1998 by a physician bioengineer in response to the demand for non-invasive treatment of circulatory disorders. In 2007, NormaTec started its Athlete Technologies Division. NormaTec is widely used by athletes as well as individuals looking to improve their circulation. NormaTec also boosts lymphatic drainage resulting in detoxification of the body. NormaTec is widely used and accepted as an amazing treatment modality by trainers, athletes, and orthopedic surgeons.

  • How does it work? The NormaTec boots use compression, which results in higher levels of oxygen being delivered into the individual muscles in the legs. Lymph drainage is boosted as well as circulation, resulting in lactic acid being flushed from the muscles.
  • What does it feel like? Many describe the feeling similar to a massage. NormaTec offers varying levels of intensity to suit each individual preference. Air will compress alternately to different parts of your legs, moving blood to various areas for several seconds at a time. Most people describe NormaTec as relaxing and invigorating.
