Superior Compression for Faster, More Effective Results
Compression sequence has everything to do with how effective a pneumatic(air) compression device will be at removing waste both quickly and efficiently. Some devices fill and release chamber by chamber while others fill the entire compression boot with air before deflating. This difference can have a significant impact on recovering a muscle in the shortest amount of time with the greatest result.
|Sequential compression like the RecoveryPump, is an effective therapy where 1-2 Hours per day will produce results compared to Rest taking 12-48 hours to achieve similar benefit.|
|With Sequential Compression each cycle of compression continuously offloads the venous system (entire limb) during a 30 to 40 second “milking” sequence, thus moving significantly more blood and ultimately waste product.|
|“Wave-Form” or “Pulse” compression which is referred to as peristaltic compression in the medical field, requires several more hours of use to produce equivalent results compared to that of SIPC pumps. Most athletes don’t have the time or patience to sit for long periods of time.|
|Peristaltic “Wave-Form” or “Pulse” compression only applies 8 to 12 seconds of compression to any part of the extremity during a cycle therefore most of the extremity is uncompressed during the cycle. This is not adequate to clear the venous system for enough duration to aggressively promote osmosis and absorption of fluid and excise the waste built up in the muscle tissue.|
