Normatec compression therapy is commonly used to aid recovery from sports injuries, orthopedic conditions, and post-workout recovery to reduce muscle soreness and improve circulation.

During your Compression Therapy session, you will feel a rhythmic series of compression and deflation through the device (arms, hips, or legs). Most report this to be a relaxing experience.

Normatec sessions are typically 20-30 minutes in length and can be used daily.

These systems use a patented massage pattern to target different parts of the body. It uses pneumatic compression to massage the arms, hips, and legs. By improving circulation, the recovery system promotes pain relief and recovery. The following biomimicry forms are used:


  • Pulsing. It mobilizes fluid by mimicking the muscle pumps of arms and legs. This helps improve the movement of metabolites and fluid out of the body after an intense workout. 
  • Gradient hold. It stops fluids from being directed in the wrong direction by restricting the backflow of fluid. 
  • Distal release. It prevents backflow by releasing the hold pressure in each zone.

We recommend you wear clothes that fit comfortably, but snugly. Loose-fitting clothes may bunch and cause discomfort as the device compresses.
