NormaTec Compression Therapy in Fort Lauderdale
Santiso PT is excited to include the NormaTec recovery system as one of the new recovery options available to clients! The NormaTec Compression Therapy System helps maximize recovery for both athletes and non-athletes. NormaTec synergistically combines three distinct massage techniques to speed the body’s normal recovery process: pulsing compression, gradients, and distal release. NormaTec helps you train harder and recover faster.
What is NormaTech Compression Therapy?
NormaTec is a compression system which is used by elite athletes, coaches and trainers for rapid recovery and rehab pre-, post and between training and games. Our NormaTec Pulse Recovery Boots use NormaTec’s patented Pulse technology to provide air compression to the legs leading to enhanced fluid mobilization and accelerated recovery.
What are the benefits of NormaTech Compression Therapy?
- Improved blood flow to the legs
- Improved lymphatic drainage
- Removal of lactic acid and metabolic waste
- Reduces inflammation and swelling
- Decreases fatigue and soreness
- Increase in flexibility and range of motion
- Accelerated recovery and rehab
- Greater performance ability
- Relaxation massage to the muscles
- Speeds up recovery of DOMs
How does NormaTec Compression Therapy Work?
Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, NormaTec Compression Therapy uses three key massage techniques to maximize your recovery.
Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). Our patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.
Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE and PULSE PRO can deliver maximum pressure in every zone.
Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s 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 the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.
