Intelligent Pressure Therapy – Sport

Effective treatment of injuries, faster restitution and boosted energy levels.

Effective sport injury recovery

Intelligent Pressure Therapy – Sport is an effective method of treatment for sport, exercise and training-related injuries and for recovery promotion. Such injuries/overstrains often include internal bleedings and oedema.

Intelligent Pressure Therapy – Sport promotes the body’s own healing processes through increased perfusion to the injured area, effectively reducing the period of injury.

Intelligent Pressure Therapy – Sport is an effective accelerator of the body’s recovery processes through increased perfusion. Increased perfusion causes an increased discharge of bodily waste products, increased reduction of lactic acid and a reduction of muscle protein breakdown.

Intelligent Pressure Therapy – Sport is primarily targeted at athletes and people generally involved in active sports activites, who suffer from acute or chronic injuries, as well as for people wishing to promote the body’s recovery process after exercising.

The technique behind Intelligent Pressure Therapy – Sport involves increasing microcirculation and improving capillarization in the body’s lower extremities through alternating between low pressure and normal atmospheric pressure.  Studies show a markedly improvement of blood circulation using Intelligent Pressure Therapy, particularly to body extremities. The treatment is relaxing, risk-free and has no negative side-effects.
