What are Rapid Compression Boots?
Rapid Compression Boots are wearable leg cuffs that use active sequential compression to help our legs recover faster by assisting the the removal of metabolic by-products. The compression starts at your ankle and works towards your hips, creating pressure proximally back towards your heart.
Why we feel sore after exercise?
Muscle soreness, pain or fatigue can be felt after any form of exercise and is generally a result of micro-trauma to muscle tissue and inflammation. This leads to accumulation of metabolic by-products, lactate and creatine, which our bodies cannot completely remove during exercise or a cool-down. It is essential that these by-products are removed via the venous and lymphatic systems to help promote muscle recovery and enhance performance.
Can our bodies remove metabolic by-products?
Yes, naturally our lymphatic system and blood vessels work simultaneously to flush waste from our cells. However, muscular movement (such as a slow jog) is needed to stimulate this process as the lymphatic system does not have a pump (unlike our heart for blood). Passive waste removal completed by our bodies takes an extended period of time, which is why athletes seek alternative strategies to speed up recovery such as massage or ice baths.
What happens when you use active sequential compression?
Active sequential compression technology increases venous return and rapidly accelerates the body’s reabsorption of elements causing muscle fatigue and soreness. Specific compression levels can increase circulation at all levels of the venous system, including deep veins, saphenous veins, superficial veins and perforator veins, effectively removing metabolic waste faster than any traditional method of recovery or rest alone. This technology is based on the latest clinical studies on muscle physiology and sports injury recovery. Active compression not only relieves symptoms of damage to the muscular system, it can tackle the cause of muscle soreness at the source and thereby improve performance.
