Normatec is a form of vasopneumatic pressure which means it is desgined to apply pressure to an extremity helping in the reduction of swelling or lymphedema. This is achieved by using dynamic air compression to massage extremities, help move fluid through these limbs and increase recovery time.
The cycle starts with a pre-inflate cycle that provides a mild pressure against the extremities and then moves into an upward motion starting at the hands and/or feet and working up the limb towards the heart. The feeling will be that of compression in a pulsed fashion followed by a release .
