Normatec Recovery Boots

I'm excited to introduce to now a new treatment at my clinic -
the Normatec 2-0 leg Recovery System ( known as recovery boots)

What are Normatec recovery Boots?

Normatec recovery boots are used by many leading athletes, coaches and fitness enthusiasts around the world to reduce pain and inflammation and to speed up the recovery between sessions and/or return to play. Normatec uses air compression technology to relieve muscle aches and/or pain and to temporarily increase circulation to the treated areas

Who are they suitable for?

Normatec recovery boots are of particular benefit to patients who are involved in intensive sports or fitness training. Normatec devices are designed to help athletes to recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation Normatec recovery boots can also provide relief to patients who are recovering from certain leg surgeries or who are experiencing lower limb swelling (injury, arthritis,lymphoedema etc). Note if you have any of these conditions it's best to ask your sports therapist first if Normatec is a suitable treatment option for you.


How do they work?

Normatec recovery boots consist of a control unit and attachments which go on the legs. They use compressed air to 1. massage your limbs 2. mobilise and 3. speed up recovery. You will first experience a pre - inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are moulded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet- a similar sensation to a blood pressure cuff, this feeling then subsides, and the inflation(compression) slowly works its way up your limbs, section by section. Over the course of the session, the boots feel like a deep pressure massage over the leg. The graduated pressure is soothing, relaxing and calming.
