RecoveryPump opened its doors to the athletic community on January 1st, 2011.

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.

Compression therapy has been around since the 1960’s primarily used within the medical community – that is, until recently.

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.

The RecoveryPump System increases blood circulation via the sequence of applying compression to help clear metabolic waste build-up and restore the natural delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscle. The RecoveryPump System can be used daily as an aggressive recovery treatment for fatigued muscles.

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.

A massaging action squeezes 4 air-filled chambers, starting from the foot and systematically filling to the last chamber at the hip. The RecoveryBoots deflate after approximately 30 seconds, allowing blood to flow freely.

This cycle repeats itself for the duration of use, forcing the body to evacuate the metabolic waste causing fatigue and soreness in the muscle.

Massage, Ice baths, and the RecoveryPump System achieve very different outcomes. Massage is primarily a therapy to work a muscle group, to elongate the muscle, force fluid from it, to relax or release the muscle and/or relieve spasm. Ice baths primarily provide a huge inflow to blood into the area along with significant muscle contraction. For injury, this is desirable so as to slow inflammation from occurring. For muscle recovery from daily training, ice slows down the process because of constricting the vessels.

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.

Use the RecoveryPump System before a workout for 15-20 minutes to energize the venous system and increase circulation before heavy exertion. In essence, you are getting a warm-up cycle by using the RecoveryPump System—allowing you to hit full stride very quickly.

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.

There are 5 different leg lengths available in the Recovery Boots. The girth of the extremity is accommodated by the design of the sleeve and the automatic fitting cycle of the system. The RecoveryPump will deliver the same pressure to large legs vs. skinny legs.

The Boots are measured in centimeters from the bottom of the heel to the bottom of the glutes. We have size 75cm, 85cm, 95cm, 105cm and 115cm available. A sizing chart is in the Help section. We can properly fit someone from 4’6” to 7’+ plus we will soon have upper extremity garments to treat arm, shoulder, chest and upper back.
