THE POWER OF RECOVERY

Athletic recovery is as important as training and nutrition.

Exercise is stress and, while it does provide lasting physical and psychological benefits, it also creates traumas or microtears in your soft tissue, specifically your muscles. This can lead to soreness and pain. An imbalance caused by overly intensive training and inadequate recovery will not only lead to injury but also to less effective training sessions.

There are many recovery methods available to athletes nowadays. The ones available to anyone are sleep and rest days. Yet many athletes like to take a more active approach to their recovery.

AIR RELAX RECOVERY BOOTS AND RECOVERY

Compression devices were once only for the exclusive use of patients with serious muscular and circulatory disorders such as lymphedema, venous insufficiency and P.A.D. Today, Recovery systems are used by sports teams, universities, physical therapists, and professional athletes to improve recovery time and enhance their training

“Compression garments add external pressure. Blood can easily pool in the extremities, especially in the lower limbs due to gravity,” writes exercise physiologist Ross Hamilton in his guide for recovery.

“The extra compression helps squeeze the blood out of the muscles and back to the lungs and heart. This allows fresh oxygenated blood to replace it.”

Its benefits are said to include:

  • Improved blood circulation

  • Boost lymphatic fluid movement (reduce potential swollen legs/feet)

  • Removal of lactic acid (reduce muscle fatigue)

  • Improved flexibility

  • Recovery stimulation

  • Boost oxygen distribution

This is backed by research: a 2017 study found that external pneumatic compression mitigated a reduction in flexibility and pressure-to-pain threshold (the minimum force applied which induces pain), as well as reduced select skeletal muscle oxidative stress and proteolysis markers during recovery from heavy resistance exercise.

Another study concluded that peristaltic pulse dynamic compression is a promising means of accelerating and enhancing recovery after the normal aggressive training that occurs in Olympic and aspiring Olympic athletes

MINIMIZE RECOVERY TIME AND MAXIMIZE RECOVERY EFFECT FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE.

When you rest, you create an environment for healing from exercise so that the microtraumas in your muscle tissue can repair. Recovery also enables your body to efficiently clear out metabolic waste. Compression garments could reduce exercise discomfort by limiting sore muscles and preventing cramps experienced after exercise.

Air Relax compression boots could help keep the body healthy over a longer period of time, thus helping you avoid unnecessary niggles and injuries related to intense exercise. Less time off because of injury means more time training and therefore better performance. Recovery is a factor you have control over, make sure you do.

What is Air Relax Compression System

The Air Relax is an air compression device with multiple chambers that compress in succession. Our system increases blood flow through your muscles, which has been shown to aid with sports and other recovery, similar to the effects of a professional massage.

How Does the Air Relax System Work

After fitting both legs into thigh-high cuffs, just sit or lay on a flat surface of a bed, floor or couch and let the technology do the work. The leg cuffs have hoses that connect to the air compressor. Once the compressor is turned on, the air chambers in each leg cuff fill up with air in the sequence you choose, gradually compressing each muscle group in the legs and feet and then repeating.  You may choose the compression sequence you like the most. Massage therapy will increase circulation and will flush lactic acid from a users legs after a tough workout or standing for long periods.
