Normatec in Lubbock, TX

Our compression services are designed to increase blood flow to certain areas of your body naturally. Our high-tech compression machines will apply pressures of varying intensity to the injured or aching area, reducing painful symptoms and speeding up the healing process.

Science & Technology 

Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, the NormaTec PULSE Massage Pattern employs three key techniques—pulsing, distal release, and gradients—all to maximize your recovery.

NormaTec Recovery Systems are cutting-edge, commercial grade compression devices that enhance the body’s natural ability to recover. Using NormaTec compression rejuvenates muscle tissue and dramatically reduces tightness and soreness. When used as part of a rehab protocol, NormaTec helps to speed recovery, improve outcomes, and increase patient satisfaction. 

Dynamic compression is a highly effective modality for sports recovery. NormaTec’s recovery systems are FDA cleared medical devices.

Recovery is your edge to achieve more. Maximize your training with NormaTec’s patented technology. The PULSE 2.0 Series works as both a high-tech warm up, and a dynamic way to recover faster post-workout.

RECOVERY FOR ELITE TEAMS AND PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES:

The next generation NormaTec PULSE 2.0 Series is engineered to bring world-class recovery to athletes of all levels and made to the standards demanded by the world’s best athletes, teams, and coaches.

The PULSE 2.0 Series systems are the recovery system trusted by 97% of Pro teams.

HOW IT WORKS: BIOMIMICRY

PULSING

Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing).

Our patented 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.

GRADIENTS

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.

Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the PULSE and PULSE PRO can deliver maximum pressure in every zone.

DISTAL RELEASE

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.

BENEFITS

1. Increase Range of Motion:

Perstaltic pulse dynamic compression rapidly enhances acute range-of-motion with less discomfort and time

2. Lessen Pain Sensitivity:

Peristaltic pulse dynamic compression is a promising means of accelerating and enhancing recovery by reducing muscle tenderness from pressure stimuli.

3. Pulse Compression as a Treatment for DOMS:

A 30-minute treatment of Pulse compression increases blood flow in the lower extremity, possibly making Pulse compression a viable option in the management of exercise-induced muscle damage (DOMS).

4. Gene Expression in Human Muscle Tissue:

Peristaltic pulse compression appears to upregulate rps6 and downregulate Stat1, which may facilitate positive adaptive responses to exercise.

5. Clear Metabolites Passively:

Intermittent pneumatic compression significantly lowers blood lactate concentrations when compared to a passive recovery group.

6. Decrease Muscle Fatigue After Acute Exercise:

External pneumatic compression increases flexibility and reduces select skeletal muscle oxidative stresss and proteolysis markers during recovery from heavy resistance exercise.

7. Improve Endothelial Function:

A single bout of perstaltic pulse compression improves conduit artery endothelial function systematically and improves RH blood flow in the compressed limbs.

8. NormaTec Upregulates PGC-1a and eNOS:

A 60 min bout of whole-leg, peristaltic pulse compression transiently upregulates PGC-1a mRNA, while also upregulating eNOS protein and Nox concentrations in biopsy samples.
