The principals have worked on the medical side of the business providing patients and doctors with compression therapy for arterial and venous disease, lymphedema and other circulatory problems like diabetes, for decades.
Much like the compression socks you see athletes wearing today (which were used in hospitals long before athletes began using them), pneumatic (air) compression like the RecoveryPump System is now being used outside of the medical field for serious athletes to reduce muscle fatigue and increase circulation.
We challenge you to take your recovery as seriously as a training or nutrition regimen and use the RecoveryPump every day. You can cash in the benefits with stronger training days, reduced risk of injury and faster post-race recovery so you can get back to training and competing.
This cycle repeats itself for the duration of use, forcing the body to evacuate the metabolic waste causing fatigue and soreness in the muscle.
The RecoveryPump System treats the soreness and fatigue in the muscle systemically. What that means is we are manipulating the venous system rather than the muscle itself, to remove inflammation in the joint, soft tissue and muscle tissue by applying compression and increasing circulation. We highly recommend massage be an important part of the recovery process and that using the RecoveryPump System before a massage will only make the therapist’s job easier and more affective by reducing inflammation which causes the muscle to relax before a massage treatment begins.
If you can use the RecoveryPump System immediately after a workout, use it for 30-45 minutes. If you wait until after you workout and go about your daily activities, we suggest 1to 1.5 hours in the evening.
