NormaTec Recovery Boots at Our Physical Therapy Clinic

What Are NormaTec Recovery Boots?

According to the NormaTec website, NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery—their systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. The NormaTec recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab designed to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance. The boots act as a pneumatic vaso-compressive device using compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery. When you use our systems, you will first experience 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, calves, knee and upper quad. 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 leg.

Risks and Benefits of the NormaTec Recovery Boots

The risks and benefits of using the NormaTec Recovery System are the same as having a massage. If the pressure feels uncomfortable, you can reduce the intensity or stop the session.
