NormaTec is the leader in compression recovery for athletes. Their systems give a competitive edge to the world's best athletes, coaches, and trainers. NormaTec Recovery Systems use patented compression technology to increase circulation to the limbs, helping athletes to recover faster, with reduced pain and soreness. The NormaTec PULSE Series is currently relied on by 97% of professional teams, as well as Olympic and elite athletes.
