"Learn how to use Normatec boots for optimal recovery after exercise"

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prep Time:

    • Wash and dry your legs: Ensure your skin is clean and free of lotions or oils for optimal compression.
    • Gather your Normatec boots: Locate the power cord, attachments, and any size adapters.
  2. Power Up:

    • Connect the attachments: Secure the leg attachments to the boots, ensuring proper alignment.
    • Plug in the power cord: Locate the power outlet and connect the cord to the boots.
  3. Size it Up:

    • Open the zip: Open the zip on each boot to allow for easy leg insertion.
    • Slide in: Carefully insert each leg into the appropriate boot, ensuring a snug but comfortable fit.
    • Adjust the Zip: Secure the zip comfortably around your legs, avoiding any excessive tightness.
  4. Set Your Session:

    • Locate the control unit: Find the control panel on the boots or a separate control unit.
    • Power on: Turn on the device using the power button.
    • Choose your program: Select a pre-set program (recovery, circulation, etc.) or customize settings.
    • Adjust pressure: Gradually increase the pressure to a comfortable level, aiming for a firm but not painful compression.
    • Set the timer: Choose a session duration based on your needs (typically 20-30 minutes).
  5. Relax and Recover:

    • Find a comfortable position: Sit or lie down in a relaxed position.
    • Enjoy the compression: As the boots inflate and deflate, feel the pressure work its magic on your legs.
    • Listen to your body: If you experience any discomfort, lower the pressure or end the session early.
  6. Power Down and Care:

    • Let the pressure release completely: Wait for the boots to fully deflate before removing them.
    • Power off: Turn off the control unit and unplug the power cord.
    • Store your boots: Store the boots and attachments in a cool, dry place when not in use.

Bonus Tips:

  • Hydration is key: Proper hydration before and after using Normatec can further enhance recovery.
  • Listen to your body: Adjust pressure levels and session durations based on your individual needs and comfort.
  • Consult a healthcare professional: If you have any concerns about using Normatec, consult your doctor or physical therapist first.
