Compression Treatment Pressure

Welcome to All Sensors “Put the Pressure on Us” blog. This blog brings out pressure sensor aspects in a variety of applications inspired by headlines, consumer and industry requirements, market research, government activities, and you.

Compression Treatment Pressure

A machine that provides dynamic air compression can help users recover faster from an injury or improve their training and maximize their performance. For example, Hyperice’s Normatec 3 uses dynamic air compression to create 7 compression levels. Patented pulse technology delivers treatment to 5 overlapping zones and uses biomimicry to replicate the natural muscle pumps of the legs. Alternatively, a different attachment performs similar action to the arms.

Hyperice Normatec 3 Dynamic Air Compression Treatment

A computer-controlled compressor with digitally controlled valve system channels air to each zone. Each zone is inflated like an automatic blood pressure with a pressure range from 30 to 110 mmHg. Patented pulsing action occurs for an allotted amount of time at the set intensity level. ZoneBoost™ technology allows the user to increase the intensity of a single zone on the attachment by adding an extra 60 seconds of massage time as well as 10 mmHg increased pressure in the selected zone.

The sequential massage pattern begins by compressing the user’s feet, hands, or upper quad depending on which attachment is used. Each zone of the attachment compresses and then holds pressure. This process repeats for each zone of the attachment as the compression pattern works toward the user’s heart.
