The world’s leading brand in compression based recovery is available at Movement Rx.
The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems is a dynamic compression device designed for recovery and rehabilitation. Similar to the kneading and stroking performed 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 progressively up your limb.
How Normatect Recovery Works
Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern employs three key techniques to maximise your recovery:
PULSING: Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). The patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.
GRADIENTS: Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE and PULSE PRO can deliver optimised pressure in every zone.
DISTAL RELEASE: Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s normal circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology releases the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

You should NOT use NormaTec compression therapy if you have any of the following conditions:
- Acute pulmonary oedema.
- Acute thrombophlebitis.
- Acute congestive cardiac failure.
- Acute infections.
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE).
- Wounds, lesions, or tumours at or near the site of compression.
- Previous inguinal (groin) lymph node surgery/excision.
- Conditions where increased venous and lymphatic return is undesirable.
- Bone fractures or dislocations at or near the site of compression.
