Normatec Pulse Recovery
NormaTec is used by pro athletes around the world to enhance blood flow and speed recovery. NormaTec Pulse from Reform Chiropractic in Downey or El Monte does this through the use of biomimicry, to emulate the most efficient machine on the planet; the human body. NormaTec Pulse makes use of 3 key techniques to maximize recovery-pulsing, distal release, and gradients.
Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, NormaTec uses dynamic compression (pulsing). A 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.
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.
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.
