Intermittent pneumatic compression was initially developed as a therapeutic technique used in medical devices that include an air pump and inflatable auxiliary sleeves, gloves or boots in a system designed to improve venous circulation in the limbs of patients who suffer edema or the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE). In recent times, this technology has been adapted for use by elite athletes as a recovery tool.

After a intense workout or competition, there is some degree of exercise reduced muscle damage at a cellular level. This is accompanied by an influx of fluid into the cells that manifests as swelling. Pneumatic compression is beneficial as it physically forces this added fluid back out of the cells. In doing so , it takes many of the by-products of the muscle damage with it.


  • 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
