Compression Therapy is the method of applying pressure evenly over a tight or painful area, consistently squeezing to release pressure within the veins. Compression helps to increase blood and lymph fluid flow to promote healing, proper circulation, and also reduce swelling. The NormaTec utilizes PULSE technology using compressed air to massage the limbs and mobilize fluid. The pulsing compression begins at the distal end, holds pressure to prevent fluids from flowing in the wrong direction, and works its way up each limb. The use of the NormaTec in Compression Therapy: increases circulation and flexibility, reduces soreness, swelling and edema, enhances nutrient delivery to the tissues, and speeds up athletic recovery.
