Compression Boots

Hammer House now offers Normatec compression boots allowing you to experience the recovery and performance benefits of compression therapy in a convenient and efficient 30-minute session.

Normatec is a pulsating pneumatic compression system which inflates one chamber after another to squeeze and work up the legs. Once you take off the boots you will experience a pleasant light weightless feeling through the legs. Originally founded as a medical device to prevent blood clots the technology has now been developed to improve blood flow and speed up the recovery process.

Compression boots offer numerous benefits, particularly post-training. They help improve circulation, reduce muscle soreness, decrease swelling and inflammation, enhance recovery, encourage lymphatic drainage, prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT), increase flexibility and range of motion, and provide convenience and ease of use. Being non-invasive and drug-free, they are a safe and effective recovery method.
