YES! You can lose weight, reduce pain and inflammation with NormaTec! We have seen it work wonders!
NormaTec compression therapy helps to restore healthy circulation and improve mobility in the limbs. Our state-of-the-art pneumatic compression devices use a patented technology to control lymphedema, heal chronic wounds, help support weight loss (if weight loss is a goal) and help improve venous insufficiency, with a convenient system.
NormaTec was invented in 1998 by Dr. Laura Jacobs, a physician who also had a doctorate in engineering, in response to a desperate need for new technology to rapidly and non-invasively treat circulation-related disorders. Since then, NormaTec has been an industry leader in pneumatic compression, providing improved mobility and profound healing results for thousands of patients. The work that Dr. Jacobs pioneered with NormaTec’s technology has also grown to include the NormaTec PULSE and PULSE PRO which help athletes of all levels to optimize their recovery and improve their training.
NormaTec uses a dynamic compression pattern to disengorge tissue and improve circulation. Three critical concepts, borrowed from normal physiology, all contribute to the effectiveness:
“One session and my legs look and feel thinner, plus they feel great! ”
Pulsing compression simulates the “muscle pump” of the limb
Gradient directionality of flow occurring in the venous and lymphatic one-way valves
Effective movement of fluids as seen in peristalsis
While pneumatic compression devices have been on the market for 40+ years, only the NormaTec uses the patented NormaTec Pulse Technology which mimics the principles found in normal physiology to improve venous and lymphatic flow.
FDA indications for NormaTec include the treatment of: venous insufficiency, chronic wounds/chronic dermal disruption-type ulceration, acquired lymphedema (secondary to cancer and also following trauma, inflammation, surgery, and/ or radiation treatment), post-mastectomy lymphedema, congenital (or primary) lymphedema, as well as other edematous conditions. Additionally, it is indicated for the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
NormaTec is contraindicated for patients with: acute deep vein thrombosis; severe atherosclerosis or other ischemic vascular diseases; suspect or known acute deep vein thrombosis; severe congestive cardiac failure; existing pulmonary edema; existing pulmonary embolism; extreme deformity of the limbs; any local skin or tissue condition which the garments would interfere with such as gangrene, untreated or infected wounds, recent skin graft, and dermatitis; known presence of malignancy in the legs; limb infections, including cellulitis, that have not received antibiotic coverage; presence of lymphangiosarcoma.
