NormaTec Compression Therapy
The concept of using external compression therapy to aid the body with its normal circulatory processes has been around since the 1960s. NormaTec’s founder realized that the key to advancing the technology of external compression therapy is improving the massage pattern. Thus, NormaTec developed and patented Sequential Pulse Technology.
Due to this patented technology, iCRYO exclusively uses NormaTec's compression therapy boots and other attachments to provide our guests with the ultimate compression therapy experience. The benefits of compression therapy include increased circulation and blood flow as well as assistance in muscle recovery. To elevate this experience, we encourage our guests to pair this service with whole body cryotherapy in order to achieve optimal results.
Here are the Techniques used by NormaTec's Sequential Pulse Technology:
Pulsing - NormaTec's patented sequential pulse technology effectively mimics the muscle contractions of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.
Gradients - NormaTec's patented sequential pulse technology utilizes gradient hold pressures to keep your body’s fluids from being forced down toward your feet by the pulsing action in proximal zones. Because of this, maximum pressure can be evenly delivered throughout the limbs.
Distal Releases - NormaTec's patented sequential pulse technology releases the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.
