Compression Therapy

The compression units allow for customized control of your rehabilitation therapy experience. The design of the system molds to your exact body shape when you first turn it on during a pre-inflate cycle. This will allow a tight customized compression therapy massage just for you.

What is Normatec Compression Therapy?

NormaTec Compression Therapy is a front-line recovery system that helps patients rehabilitate and regain mobility between day-to-day lifestyle activities. The NormaTec Compression Therapy consists of a compression device that surrounds your legs or hips. These compression units utilize compressed air to massage your legs or hips, leading to mobilized fluid and faster recovery and recuperation following intense physical exertion, or day to day activities. Instead of just squeezing the legs or hips using static compression, this innovative technology utilizes pulsing, like what you would experience in a manual massage. The pulsing alternates between different zones while other areas hold, improving the movement of fluid out of the legs or hips.

“Highly recommended for anyone who may be sore, ache, and/or have problems with blood circulation. I have used pelvis and leg compression therapy. I really enjoyed the pelvis for my lower back especially being a regional fitness manager- working out and traveling a lot. It is very affordable too. Thank you, Dr. Miller!”
