Our NormaTec Recovery System is a pneumatic air compression system that helps to rid our body of metabolic waste products from exercise, decrease inflammation, improve lymphatic drainage, which in turn can improve recovery times. Great before or after a heavy training session or a long run!
What is NormaTec Recovery System?
NormaTec is the global leader in rapid recovery. Our systems provide a competitive advantage to elite athletes, coaches, trainers, and other professionals. NormaTec’s goal is to make recovery an integral part of every athlete’s training. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems, dynamic compression devices, are designed to aid in rehabilitation and recovery. The NormaTec PULSE Technology helps athletes recover quicker between training and performance.
NormaTec systems come with a control unit as well as attachments that can be attached to the hips, legs, and arms. The system uses compressed air to massage your limbs and mobilize fluid. The system will require you to first inflate the device. During this time, the attached attachments are customized to your body. Depending on the attachment, the session will begin with compression of your feet, hands or upper quad. Each segment of the attachment will be compressed in a pulse-like fashion, then released. This is similar to a massage. As the compression pattern moves up your limb, it will do the same for each section of the attachment.
How It Works in Concord, Tyngsboro and Barrington
The NormaTec Pulse massage pattern starts at the foot, hand or lower hip. It then moves up zone-by-zone, massaging the limbs and mobilizing fluid from the extremities.
The NormaTec Pulse massage pattern was created by a physician-bioengineer (MD, PhD.) to increase blood flow and speed recovery. It employs three key techniques to maximize recovery.
Pulsing: Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compress (pulsing) instead of static compression (squeezing), to transport fluid from the limbs. Our patent-pending pulsing action mimics the muscles pump in the legs and arms. This greatly enhances fluid movement and metabolites after intense training.
Gradients: Fluid backflow is prevented by one-way valves in veins and lymphatic vessels. NormaTec Pulse Technology also uses hold pressures to prevent fluids being forced in the wrong directions. This enhancement allows the PULSE or PULSE PRO to deliver maximum pressure in any zone, rather than tapering pressure off.
Extended static pressure: Sequential Pulse Technology allows for the distal release of hold pressures to prevent backflow. Each limb’s rest time is maximized by releasing the hold pressure in the appropriate zone as quickly as possible.

Top notch facilities and even better Staff who are engaging, motivating, purposeful, and knowledgeable. Many thanks to Connor, Brett, Julia, Anthony, and Jax for getting me back on track from an ACL tear to play D1 college soccer.
Dr. Brett is a professional strength coach and physical therapist that has kept my body moving correctly for over a year now. When a random strain/injury happens in the gym, I know I can make an appointment and get my questions answered, and the problem solved. He treats the injury with exceptional knowledge and teaches you how to move better to avoid injury next time. This guy isn’t after your money… He is after your well-being. And it’s very obvious. His patients leave feeling cared for. And he’s very friendly! Thank you Brett for taking good care of all of us 🙂
