For many athletes, workout recovery is an important part of their weekly schedule. To help with recovery, compression boots are a popular option, especially for runners, and cyclists. Traditional compression boot technology is bulky and difficult to travel with, however, both Hyperice and SPRYNG now offer mobile options. Below is a quick look at both the Normatec Go and SPRYNG mobile compression recovery options.
Compression technology acts like a gentle massage. This puts gentle pressure on the muscles to minimize soreness and tightening. Compression boots, or wearables help to raise the temperature of the tissue to maximize blood flow and promote healing. Athletes can also utilize compression technology to reduce swelling after an injury.
Hyperice pushed the boundaries of compression therapy by creating a user-friendly and portable version of their compression boot. This lower-body air compression option has various features including;
The Normatec Go easily fits into any gym bag and weighs just 1.2 lbs.
This means users can pack their Normatec Go in their carry-on bag for easy travel.
The Normatec Go has the same battery life as the Normatec 3 with up to 3 hours of use.
Just like all Hyperice products, the Normatec Go connects to the Hyperice App via Bluetooth.
This device offers 7 different compression levels, just like the Normatec 3.
The Normatec Go mobile compression recovery system consists of two calf-length sleeves, with a small control panel on each. The sleeves pair to each other and to the Hyperice app for easy control. However, users can also control the sleeves directly from the control panels. Simply, push the corresponding button to change the massage time or pressure level. The Normatec Go system also comes with 2 USB-C cables and a wall plug.
The SPRYNG compression wraps use patented WaveTec compression patterns to boost muscle recovery. As a leader in the industry, they have been offering their mobile compression sleeves since 2019. Some of the features of SPRYNG are;
The calf sleeves are 23 inches wide, and 14 inches tall. This makes them easy to fit into any gym bag, and they relatively lightweight at around 2lbs. Furthermore, for those with larger calves, there are extenders available.
The SPRYNG display uses colored lights to indicate various settings.
The SPRYNG calf compression sleeves come with a set 15-minute massage length. This makes set up a breeze, as users simply select the compression intensity and pattern.
Charging time is 2.5 hours, which results in 2.5 hours of battery life, which will last for 10 sessions.
SPRYNG mobile calf compression sleeves are FDA-registered and certified.
The SPRYNG system comes with two calf sleeves and micro USB charging cables, they also offer free extenders for those who have larger calves. This system is a great option for those looking for an affordable and easy-to-use compression device. Additionally, the SPRYNG compression system is available in six different colors.
When it comes to mobile compression recovery, both Normatec Go and SPRYNG are great options. However, if you frequently travel, the TSA approval for Normatec Go can be a great benefit. Both are reasonably affordable with Normatec Go at $399 USD and SPRYNG at $299.
