Leg Compression Sleeves
What is Normatec and what does it do?
The NormaTec uses a dynamic compression pattern to apply pressure to the legs and improve circulation. Three critical concepts, borrowed from normal physiology, all contribute to the effectiveness: Pulsing compression simulates the “muscle pump” of the limb, Gradient directionality of flow occurring in the venous and lymphatic one-way valves, Effective movement of fluids as seen in peristalsis
What conditions do the NormaTec compression therapy systems treat?
FDA indications for the NormaTec include the treatment of venous insufficiency, chronic wounds/chronic dermal disruption-type ulceration, acquired lymphedema (secondary to cancer and also following trauma, inflammation, surgery, and/ or radiation treatment), post-mastectomy lymphedema, congenital (or primary) lymphedema, as well as other edematous conditions. Additionally, it is indicated for the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
How often do patients use the NormaTec compression therapy systems?
Most patients use the NormaTec compression therapy system at least two to three times per week and many use it daily. You can do it as often as you want.
How long does the treatment last?
We usually set people up for 15-20 minutes.
Who should not use the NormaTec compression therapy systems?
The NormaTec Via Series is contraindicated for patients with: acute deep vein thrombosis; severe atherosclerosis or other ischemic vascular diseases; suspect or known acute deep vein thrombosis; severe congestive cardiac failure; existing pulmonary edema; existing pulmonary embolism; extreme deformity of the limbs; any local skin or tissue condition which the garments would interfere with such as gangrene, untreated or infected wounds, recent skin graft, and dermatitis; known presence of malignancy in the legs; limb infections, including cellulitis, that have not received antibiotic coverage; presence of lymphangiosarcoma.
What is the cost?
If you are just doing the leg compression sleeves it is $15. We have packages that bring down the price to $10. If you have a cryotherapy package, it is just a $5 add on. In our memberships it is included.
