For recovery and fatigue. The Normatec uses compression. Used by players and athletes after exercise or physical activity. The Normatec has leg and hip attachments to optimise recovery, promote healing and reduce muscle fatigue.
What does the Med4Elite do?
ICE (COLD THERAPY) - can help minimize swelling around the injury, reduce bleeding into the tissues, and reduce muscle spasm and pain.
HEAT - Heat therapy works by improving circulation and blood flow to a particular area due to increased temperature. Increasing the temperature of the afflicted area can soothe discomfort and increase muscle flexibility.
HOT / COLD THERAPY (RAPID CONTRAST) – you can simultaneously reduce inflammation, stimulate circulation, and loosen tight muscles, thereby easing your pain.
COMPRESSION – Compressing the injury helps reduce and prevent swelling by pumping swelling away from the injury area.
FINISH STRONG AFTER INJURY OR SURGERY
After an injury or surgery, you as the client play a critical role in the recovery process. Med4Elite’s therapeutic technologies help you finish strong and get back to the things that matter as quickly as possible, by helping to reduce the use of medications, decrease pain and swelling, increase post-operative range of motion, and increase your satisfaction.
