Our lymphatic system and blood vessels work together to flush waste from our cells naturally. Muscular movement, however, is needed to stimulate this process because the venous system does not have a pump like the arterial system does. Traditionally, athletes will perform light exercise to achieve this muscle contraction and increase circulation in the body, thereby reducing soreness in the muscles.
RecoveryPump® delivers an aggressive but very natural alternative to passive recovery for athletes. Our system simulates localized "active recovery" (such as walking) in a passive manner because the therapy is conducted at rest.
This therapy increases venous return, rapidly accelerating the body's natural re-absorption of the elements which cause soreness and fatigue in the muscle. It effectively removes metabolic waste faster than any traditional mode of recovery or rest alone.
Use of RecoveryPump's sequential compression therapy 1-2 hours per day will produce results similar to the benefits of 12-48 hours of rest.
