"AKDiV Fitness Recovery (Kristy) has been an important part of my training agenda. I use the boots and hip girdle after all my race events to reduce soreness and stiffness that occur post race and the day after. It's an especially great way to celebrate a PR!!"Ryan D.
"I love that Kristy, of AKDiV Fitness Recovery, is an endurance athlete. She can speak not only to the technology but also the reasons behind why endurance athletes utilize resources like dynamic compression for pre and post benefits. In the few years I've been incorporating compression in my training, I've experienced noticeable benefits in my recovery and race performance! I'm excited to see what the future holds for AKDiV!"Kristen S.
"I love Akdiv Fitness Recovery!! These boots are amazing! I can attest first hand how fresh my legs felt after each session. I used the boots and hip girdle pre and post my first marathon this fall. Using them before helped my legs feel lose and rejuvenated. Post marathon they helped minimize the fatigue and heaviness. I was even running again a few days later!! I highly recommend Kristy and her services :)"Carrie M.
Frequently asked questions
How do the NormaTec dynamic compression units work?
NormaTec Recovery Systems Pulse Technology combines pulsing compression, gradients, and distal release massage techniques to speed the body’s normal recovery process. Use of the NormaTec Recovery Systems maximizes circulation throughout the body so athletes recover faster from intense training, train harder and perform better.
Attachments worn on the legs, arms or hips are compressed with air from a control unit. The compressed air massages limbs and mobilizes fluids to speed up muscle recovery. The pre inflate cycle of the attachments molds to the exact shape of the athlete’s body. Depending on which attachment is being used, the feet, hands orthighs will be compressed. Then each segment of the attachment will first compress with a pulsing action and then release. This compression pattern will repeat through each segment of the attachment as it works its way up the limb.
Why is NormaTec the best recovery system for athletes?
The pneumatic waveform, exclusive to NormaTec Recovery Systems, is not only unique but also backed by science in that it mimics normal physiology. Originally the system was developed by a physician bioengineer to support blood flow and speed recovery to medical patients with severe circulatory and peripheral vascular disorders. Now they are used as an important tool in maximizing performance recovery in athletes.
When and How long can the NormaTec Pulse Systems be used?
NORMATEC Systems can be used before or after intense exercise.
Pre workout sessions are typically 10-20 minutes with low to moderate intensity to warm up muscles.
Post workout sessions are most beneficial when used for 30-60 minutes with moderate to high intensity to speed up the recovery process.
Are there any conditions that would prevent me from using NormaTec products?
NormaTec Recovery Systems are FDA cleared for personal or at home use. However, there are some contraindications for use:
- known or suspected DVT (deep vein thrombosis)
- Thrombophlebitis or Pulmonary Embolism
- Serious cardio vascular disease
- Recent skin graft or untreated infections such as cellulitis
