Instead of using static compression to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression. Our patented pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after and intense workout.
Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarity, NormaTec Pulse Technology uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the Pulse and Pulse Pro can deliver maxim pressure in every zone.
Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body's normal circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology release the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compressions.
