RECOVERY

That is the Normatec moto.  But this advanced recovery system can also be used for people post-surgery or for a gentle massage effect to help increase circulation.

NormaTec is an innovative technology that uses air pressure massage to relieve muscle aches and pains and to temporarily increase circulation to the treated areas.  There are many professional sporting organisations, professional and amateur athletes, trainers and fitness enthusiasts around the world currently use this technology whilst many more people have begun using it to assist post surgery recovery.

NormaTec uses a patented massage pattern system that effectively mimics the natural motions of the arms and legs to remove metabolites and fluids from the limbs after intense activity. The pulsing movements are helpful for preventing injuries and accelerating recovery time. The benefits of NormaTec Pulse include enhanced blood flow and dynamic compression that ensures that fluids leave the limbs after intense workouts. The system is also designed with distal release, which prevents backflow.

The benefits of dynamic compression are supported by research. Some of the benefits reported by studies include increased flexibility and range-of-motion for the lower extremities after workouts. As NormaTec increases in popularity, it’s being used in a variety of settings. Sports teams, CrossFit athletes, runners, cyclists and triathletes are among the people who use this technology. The 2018 Australian Open Women's Surf Boat crew used the Normatec recovery system throughout their preparation and during competition to come away with a clean sweep, convincingly winning every race in the 2018 Trans Tasman Test Series.

At Wilkinson Chiropractic we use the Normatec Pulse Pro, their most advanced rehab and recovery system that lets users customize every aspect of their sessions. This system is suitable for post-op and post-injury use.NormBoot Aust Team
