NormaTec® Compression Therapy: What, Why & Who

Who doesn’t love a massage? Similar to a massage, NormaTec compression therapy applies pressure on the legs and other areas of the body. This releases tension, increases blood flow and reduces pain and soreness.

Traditional compression therapy used therapeutic socks or stockings made with elastic, which constrict to allow veins to loosen. In 1998, bioengineer and rehabilitation physician Dr. Laura F. Jacobs created NormaTec® dynamic compression technology to treat patients with circulatory related disorders. Today, NormaTec’s patented compression technology is revolutionizing athlete recovery and many Impact Cryotherapy customers have found that NormaTec’s products fit well with their whole body cryotherapy offering.

Who Uses Compression Therapy

Compression therapy has been used to help those with chronic circulation issues due to injury, surgery, weight gain, blood clots or long periods without movement.

Athletes use the technology to recover quickly from workouts and to rehab injuries. From Olympic athletes to LeBron James, NormaTec compression technology is used daily by:

  • NCAA players
  • NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL teams
  • The US Olympic Committee
  • US Navy SEALs
  • Some of the world’s best triathletes, cyclists, and runners

The Benefits of NormaTec® Compression Therapy

NormaTec Recovery Systems enhance blood flow to speed the body’s normal recovery process. This helps keep athletes fresh so that they can maximize performance. NormaTec helps athletes recover faster between training and after competitions, so they can train harder and perform better. Studies have also shown it enhances flexibility.

The NormaTec® Experience

Unlike cryotherapy, compression therapy doesn’t use ice. Instead, NormaTec uses compressed air to massage your arms, legs or hips. In a 20- to 30-minute session, the patented technology first molds to your body shape, then compresses your feet, hands or upper quads, before working its way up your limb.

The massage pattern is also patented, and based on physiology. Like with a traditional massage, it compresses in a pulsing manner and then releases.
