If you are training at 100%, you need to recover at 100% too. The NormaTec Recovery System speeds up recovery between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation.
What it does
It uses dynamic air compression to massage your legs, from the bottom up, and therefore gets rid of built up metabolites. By doing this, it also allows fresh oxygenated blood to reach the muscle and thus provides it with essential nutrients and oxygen, essential to recovery.
What to expect
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 body part from the bottom up. 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 limb.
