Normatec Compression

Train Harder, Recover Faster

What are the benefits 

NormaTec is the world leader in rapid recovery—our systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers.


Our goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of every athlete’s training, and we feel NormaTec systems are the best way to accomplish that.


The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. All of our systems use NormaTec's patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance.

Normatec helps to:

  • Improve circulation

  • Lymphatic drainage

  • Remove metabolites (waste) and lactic acid build up

  • Shorten recovery time

How does it work?

Our systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern.

When you use our systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, hands, or upper quad (depending on which attachment you are using).


Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release.


This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.

What do I need to know?

The NormaTec system can be used by anyone, from the elite athlete to the weekend warrior. If you spend a lot of time on your feet all day at work, these are the best wind down tool you can possibly use.


Run triathlons on the weekend? You need to try NormaTec!


We recommend to everyone for 20-40 minutes in the Normatec boots, as this is the most beneficial time frame.


It is best done as soon as possible after your training session, this will help clear all the lactic acid and metabolites out of your muscles.


You can use our systems for up to an hour if you feel that you need it!
