A question we often get asked here at RecoverFit is this: What's the difference between the Normatec 2.0 and the Normatec 2.0 PRO?
Hyperice are and have been the leading specialists in air compression recovery systems and it comes as no surprise that a whole host of world-class athletes use Normatec to maintain their peak performance levels.
With two system models to choose from (Normatec 2.0 and Normatec 2.0 PRO), the question is which one is better suited for you?
I have the pleasure of writing this article today to help answer this question for you and which one would be better for your needs.
Both Normatec 2.0 Systems boast impressive features that not only speed up your recovery but are also only available through Normatec with its very own specialised patented technology. Both systems are Bluetooth enabled allowing you to connect to your phone through the Hyperice app meaning you can sit back at home and control your whole recovery process all in the palm of your hands!
Normatec have strived off only using the best medical grade equipment on attachments meaning the durability you get with the products is second to none and, if there was ever any issue you may come across we offer a 2-year worldwide warranty to really put your mind at ease.
Now, to discuss the main differences between the two systems.
The difference generally lies in the level of customization you can achieve with the Normatec 2.0 PRO model, this is particularly beneficial for professionals such as physiotherapists and working professionals who have a wide range of clientele who host a wide range of injuries and recovery protocols. The Normatec 2.0 PRO system has rehabilitation settings specifically for the knee and ankle but you can also enter the next level of customization. You can adjust the pressure in each chamber of the attachments which is great for the times you need to avoid too much pressure on specific injured/tender areas. For example; a player who has had recent ACL reconstruction would need to have lower pressure in chamber 3 of the leg attachments whilst the open wound is healing but still will also need to ensure chambers 1-2, 4-5 are circulating the blood flow to help reduce the swelling surrounding the knee. With the impressive touchscreen technology also available on the Normatec 2.0 PRO system, it is easy to adjust between the 30-110mmHg pressures to create the perfect recovery strategy to suit your needs.
Not only when recovering from injury, when you look to recover from a hard training session or competition the Normatec Systems have an added accessory button called the 'zone boost'. This button is a simple yet effective accessory for when you need added pressure in a certain chamber on your attachment to really help aid that blood flow through your fatigued muscles.
A perfect example of this is; after the athlete has finished a hard cycling session, their quads will feel very fatigued and full of lactic acid as they warm down. When going through their recovery protocol on the Normatec boots they simply press 'zone boost' as it reaches zones 4 or 5, this increase in pressure will help increase the blood flow for the designated area in these chambers and will help break up the lactic acid build-up allowing for a faster recovery for the athlete.
To conclude this article, when choosing between the NormaTec 2.0 and Normatec 2.0 PRO be reassured the performance level between both are the same for creating the best recovery protocol you need in order to be back at your best.
