What Is Normatec?

NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery. Our systems give a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. With NormaTec, the goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of every individuals training methods, and we feel that NormaTec systems are the best way to accomplish that. The NormaTec Pulse Recovery System is a dynamic compression device designed for recovery and rehab. Our recovery system uses NormaTec’s patented PULSE technology to help individuals recover faster between trainings and after performance.

Our systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with NormaTec’s patented Pulse Massage Pattern. When you use NormaTec, 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.
NormaTec has been commonly used by the world’s most famous and successful athletes. To name a few;

NBA Players: Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Shaquille O’Neal and Dwayne Wade…
NFL Players: Larry Fitzgerald, Vernon Davis, Earl Bennett…
NHL Players: Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds, Jaromir Jagr…
Runners: Deena Kastor and Men Keflezighi…
Cyclists: Taylor Phinney and Clara Hughes…
Triathlon Competitors: Gwen Jorgensen and Craig Alexander…

The NormaTec PULSE Systems are found in almost all professional sports team facilities, whether it be the NBA, NHL, CFL, MLB, MLS or The NFL. Olympians, MMA Fighters, CrossFit Trainers, Marathon Runners, Ironman competitors are all known to stand by and use NormaTec regularly to help increase recovery and performance. With all this being said, let us not forget that yes, us everyday goers, can completely use these systems to help us with injuries, aches and pains below our hips. The use of this system can be packaged with any of the therapies that our centre has to offer. Given availability, it can also be used on its own without having to take part of any of our centre’s available therapies.

DYNAMIC COMPRESSION ENHANCES PRESSURE-TO-PAIN THRESHOLD IN ELITE ATHLETE RECOVERY: EXPLORATORY STUDY

Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research 2015 May; 29(5):1263-72

“The purpose of this study was to assess peristaltic pulse dynamic compression (PPDC) in reducing short-term pressure-to-pain threshold (PPT) among Olympic Training Center athletes after morning training. […] We conclude that PPDC is a promising means of accelerating and enhancing recovery after the normal aggressive training that occurs in Olympic and aspiring Olympic athletes.” —view article on pubmed.

PERISTALTIC PULSE COMPRESSION UPREGULATES PGC-1Α AND ENOS IN HUMAN MUSCLE TISSUE.

Experimental Physiology 2015 May 15

“We investigated whether a single 60 min bout of whole-leg, lower pressure external pneumatic compression (EPC) altered select vascular, metabolic, antioxidant and inflammation-related mRNAs. […] An acute bout of EPC transiently upregulates PGC-1α mRNA, while also upregulating eNOS protein and NOx concentrations in vastus lateralis biopsy samples” —view article on pubmed.
