The therapy session begins by compressing the feet in a pulsing manner for several seconds and then release, moving gradually up the leg. The leggings can be worn anywhere from 15-60 minutes with varying compression pressure.

How does NormaTec Work

NormaTec utilizes compressed air to massage a person’s limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed up recovery time. The recovery compression boots begin compressing around the feet. The massage pattern moves along the leg segment-by-segment massaging the limb and forcing fluid out of the extremity.

Three Key Techniques Employed By NormaTec Compression Boots

  • Pulsing: A typical compression system squeezes the body part, forcing fluid out of the limbs, but NormaTec uses pulses that are specifically timed to compress the fluid out of the body part. The pulsing pattern mimics the natural way a muscle pumps.
  • Gradients: NormaTec uses alternating hold pressures, which travel in one direction, forcing fluids to flow in the correct direction.
  • Distal Release: Each of the five different segments of the compression boot holds the pressure on each zone just long enough for the limbs to gain maximum rest, but not long enough to obstruct the person’s normal circulatory flow.
