Be honest with yourself
Whilst Normatec has been designed to be comfortable on the legs during rest to help you recover, it does involve pressure being exerted on the legs through massage. Therefore if you are at the more painful end of the varicose veins spectrum, for example they are quite sensitive and hurt to touch, then Normatec may not be best advised. Whilst trying to improve your recovery may be important especially if you are an athlete, there may be less strenuous products out there especially from Normatec that will cause less pain, such as Normatec chair.
Normatec boots have been proven to be effective in speeding up the recovery process following scientific evidence. By massaging the legs, especially post workout but also as a warm up pre workout, it helps increase the blood flow in the legs increasing the amount of oxygen increasing the speed at which the muscles can recover/warm up. Also with its personalised app, Normatec offers the choice for the individual to tailor the amount of time and setting they choose for their own recovery. With the amount of different workouts out there, it is important consumers have flexibility to choose what is right for them. Especially for something as important as your recovery as you look to speed the process up, Normatec offers a product that can help athletes in this area but you do not want to overdo it and try and force the recovery to happen too quickly. For example wearing Normatec boots excessively or choosing the wrong setting if you have only done a low intensity workout. For those with varicose veins it would be advised to know your limits and not wear the boots for extended periods of time as it may do more harm than good. However, if they are not too severe and do not cause too much pain then Normatec boots are good for you to speed up your recovery.
