How the NormaTec Recovery System Works

NormaTec Recovery System Speeds the Body’s Healing Process

Whether you’re an athlete, or someone healing from an injury or chronic health issue, the NormaTec Recovery System helps maximize physical recovery. Using Sequential Pulse Technology (SPT), NormaTec boots combine three distinct massage techniques to speed the body’s normal recovery process. This allows for maximize circulation throughout the body. As a result, you look better, train harder, and recover faster.(triathalonmagazine)

NormaTec’s innovative SPT massage pattern is a proven scientific method that reduces recovery time to 30 minutes flat. It works in unison with the body’s natural physical and chemical processes so that healing takes place faster.


Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). This patented pulsing action effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms and as a result, greatly enhances the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.


Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, NormaTec Recovery uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. Instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE and PULSE PRO models deliver maximum pressure in every zone.

Distal Release

Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s normal circulatory flow, SPT 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 maximum rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

NormaTec Recovery Boots

The NormaTec Recovery System is made up of two inflatable boots with multiple cells or sleeves that are placed around your legs or arms. They are rhythmically inflated and deflated in order to rapidly improve poor circulation. NormaTec Recovery Boot session is easy, convenient, safe and painless. The therapy assists your body’s cardiac system in moving the fluids from the limbs back to the circulatory system, which in turn removes the unwanted material.
