What Is Compression Therapy?
Our systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery. Similar to the kneading and stroking during a massage, each attachment segment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each attachment segment as the compression pattern works its way up to your limb. Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, our compression technology uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction.
Give your sports injury the boot! Dynamic pneumatic compression enhances blood & lymph flow by decreasing lactic acid in tissues, which helps speed up recovery. Compression Therapy can help reduce stiffness, increases ROM (range of motion), helps prevent DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), reduces swelling and inflammation, facilitates greater protein absorption, and, over time, enhances muscle performance and longevity.
