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.
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.
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 lymphatic system does not have a pump, like the heart does. Often athletes will perform light exercise to achieve this muscle contraction and increase circulation in the body, thereby reducing soreness in the muscles.
