“Dr. Laura F. Jacobs, a rehabilitation physician and Ph.D. bioengineer, founded NormaTec after seeing an extraordinary need for effective treatment modalities for patients with circulation compromised by disease, surgery, radiation treatment and trauma. As a physician, she wanted the best care for her patients; as an engineer, she determined that the existing compression devices on the market were insufficient to meet that need. To solve this problem, Dr. Jacobs developed and patented the NormaTec PCD (Pneumatic Compression Device) and its unique massage pattern, Sequential Pulse Technology. The NormaTec PCD was engineered to effectively treat chronic wounds, breast cancer lymphedema, circulatory complications from diabetes, and other serious medical conditions.
In 2007, top professional and college teams and athletes began utilizing NormaTec technology to optimize their recovery and performance; the results were simply outstanding. Today, daily users include members of elite NCAA programs; the majority of NFL, NBA and NHL teams; the US Navy SEALs; and the US Olympic Committee. In addition, the world’s best triathletes, cyclists and runners train harder, recover faster and perform better with their NormaTec Recovery Systems.”
