Help Your Athletes Recover with the NormaTec PULSE Recovery System

Your athletes are focused on warming up before an athletic performance—but what happens after the game or practice ends?

Recovery is an often overlooked part of an athlete's regimen, and restoring and improving blood flow play a key role.

That's why NormaTec has established itself as a leader in rapid recovery for the world's elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. NormaTec's PULSE Series Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices for recovery and rehabilitation, designed with patented technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance.

A Patented Three-Step Pulse Pattern

The systems include a control unit and attachments for legs, arms, or hips. Compressed air follows the patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern, designed by a physician bioengineer to enhance circulation, massage limbs, mobilize fluid, reduce pain and soreness, and support rapid recovery.

Three Pulse Massage Pattern Techniques:

  • Pulsing—Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing), which actually more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms. This greatly enhances the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after a strong workout.
  • Gradients—Similar to the way veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses hold pressures to prevent fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. Instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE and PULSE PRO can maximize pressure delivered in every zone.
  • Distal Release—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.

Starting in the foot, hand, or lower hip, the NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern moves upward zone-by-zone, massaging the limb and mobilizing fluid out of the extremities.
