NormaTec’s focus is athletic recovery, but its background is in the science of blood flow: The circulatory system delivers oxygen, nutrients, and hormones to every cell in the body. Simultaneously, this complex circuit removes metabolic wastes such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid, effectively flushing the system of toxins. The idea behind compression therapy is that by increasing blood flow to specific parts of the body, more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to those areas, thereby relieving pain, reducing swelling, and speeding up recovery.
Compression therapy increases the flow of blood and lymph in the venous and lymphatic systems by applying controlled pressure on the extremities.
Advanced medical technology by NormaTec offers dynamic compression that utilizes compressed air to mobilize fluid and improve circulation. When blood vessels and arteries narrow, circulation is restricted, and blood flow is reduced. By adding pressure to areas of restricted flow, the veins in the limbs loosen. This loosening decreases venous pressure, reduces edema, and aids the body in moving blood towards the heart. It also engages the lymphatic system to flush and remove waste, swelling, and inflammation from the body.
Compression therapy increases flexibility. The relaxing of muscles and surrounding tissue helps to increase range of motion.
Compression therapy keeps blood flow healthy, aids with pain relief, and reduces swelling. Compression therapy is also used to prevent blood clots, particularly after surgery, and has proven to be a highly effective treatment for venous leg ulcers ( VLU).
NormaTec compression uses a specific pulse technology that employs three techniques to help with the body’s recovery process. The three techniques are gradients, pulsing compression, and distal release.

At 65 years old, it’s not uncommon for healing of the extremities to be tediously slow. Last month, I had a skiing accident that landed me in the hospital with a dislocated shoulder.
