How well does it work?
Rapid Reboot compression technology speeds up your body’s natural healing processes by enhancing blood flow to your muscles to facilitate cellular repair and protein synthesis, boosting lymphatic drainage to relieve inflammation and reduce swelling, and mobilizing waste products such as lactic acid and excess fluids. What you’ll notice is less stiffness and soreness, as well as increased mobility and flexibility.
It’s important to note that the speed at which you recover involves several factors, such as your age, level of fitness, sleep, and diet. No matter your situation, however, the Rapid Reboot recovery system can significantly cut down your recovery time. Rapid Reboot was based on existing medical technology that employs dynamic compression. Years of medical research and application have proven the benefit of dynamic compression. As a result, intermittent compression devices are ideal for athletes who must constantly recover and heal as they push their bodies to new limits.
How long do I use it?
Rapid Reboot comes with three time settings – 10, 20, and 30 minutes. Use these depending on the intensity of your training, race, or event. To recover from a long, arduous workout, for example, you’ll want to use the boots for at least 20 or 30 minutes. For a quick reboot or pre-workout session, 10 minutes should be enough to make your legs and body feel great!
One thing to bear in mind is that longer is not necessarily better, especially after 30 minutes. There is no harm in going longer, but you get all the benefit you need within 30 minutes of using the boots, even after a long race or intense workout.
How often can I use it?
Rapid Reboot’s dynamic compression systems are safe to use multiple times a day, including before and after training sessions. For medical applications, consult your doctor on treatment protocols best suited for your medical needs.
How much pressure should I use?
An important thing to know is that even a relatively low pressure setting can provide some benefit. That said, what pressure you use is mostly a matter of preference. Some people enjoy a higher pressure setting and tighter compression.
No matter what your pressure preference, the compression from the boots should never hurt or be uncomfortable. If it is, decrease the pressure in the boots using the control pump until the pressure is more comfortable.
What's the recommended use time?
The Rapid Reboot control unit offers three preprogrammed time durations of 10, 20, and 30 minutes. While a 20- or 30-minute session is ideal after a rigorous training session, Rapid Reboot was designed to be more efficient by offering more cycles within a given session than the competition. That means that if you don’t have much time, even a 10-minute session can give you the reboot you need.
What are the indications?
Our dynamic compression technology is ideal for post-workout recovery because it enhances blood circulation, removes lactic acid, and reduces swelling and inflammation. At the same time, Rapid Reboot has a variety of medical indications, including lymphedema, venous insufficiency, and venous thromboembolism prophylaxis.
