NormaTec Rapid Recovery

NormaTec is the leader in rapid recovery, and provides a competitive edge to athletes of all levels. Recovery is an integral part of every athlete’s training, and the NormaTec system is one of the best ways to accomplish this. The system uses compressed air to massage limbs, mobilize fluid, and accelerate recovery. A few key benefits of the NormaTec system include enhanced blood flow, a reduction in swelling, a decrease in pain and increased range of motion.

NormaTec’s patented Sequential Pulse Technology sets it apart from any other massage compression device by synergistically combining three distinct massage techniques (Pulsing, Gradient Hold, and Distal Release), in order to speed the body’s recovery process.



Pulsing action of the equipment mimics the muscle pump of the arms or legs thus, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after intense use.

Gradient Hold utilizes constant pressure to keep the body’s fluids from being forced to one end of the limb, while Pulsing continues.

Distal Release prevents any back-flow of fluids by releasing the hold pressures in each zone as soon as possible, allowing each limb to gain maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

Users of the NormaTec Rapid Recovery system include members of elite college and university athletic programs, the majority of NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL teams, and members of the US and Canadian Olympic Committees.
