- ◄Which programs do you recommend?
Before training, Optima Sport Recovery Boots can act as a massage to warm up your muscles. Pre-workout sessions are generally 10 to 20 minutes long with a moderate intensity level.
After training - Recovery
We generally recommend taking 20 to 30 minutes in program B (lymphatic drainage) followed by 15 to 30 minutes in one of the massage programs (A, C or D).
What massage program you should choose depends on your individuel preference
Program D (4 for battery machines) will feel like the moste intense (of course, you can always choose to reduce the pressure).
If you are in rehabilitation after an injury, you must often reduce the pressure in the boot. Start with 5 to 10 min in program B (lymph drainage) with low pressure (30-150 mmHg). This will provide drainage and blood circulation to the injury and reduce the rehabilitation period.
Börja med 5 till 10 min i program B (lymfdränage) med lågt tryck (30-150 mmHg). Detta kommer att ge dränering och blodcirkulation till skadan och minska rehabiliteringsperioden.
After the 5 - 10 min you may disconnect the chamber or chambers where your injury is located and continue your treatment with the remaining champers. Alternatively, consult with your physiotherapist.
It is normal to feel thirsty and relaxed after finishing treatment.
Restless legs (RLS)
We have many customers who feel that our Recovery Boots help them in connection with restless legs. If you think that massage helps your restless legs, there is a good chance that our recovery boots will also help.
We do not recommend starting with too much pressure in the boots. Below is an example of a treatment you can try. Try the treatment before you go to bed, it creates good conditions for a good night's sleep.
30 minutes in program B (2 on battery machines) with a pressure of 120-150 mmHg, followed by 10 to 20 minutes on program D with a pressure of 120 mmHg.
Lack of fluids and minerals can have an impact on restlessness in the legs. Therefore, To be cognizant of drinking enough during the day and get the vitamins and minerals you need.

After a while, cooling causes a narrowing of the blood vessels and thus reduces blood circulation. Although this may be desirable in an acute injury, it may prolong the injury period.
Our Recovery Boots focus on actively promoting blood circulation to get you back on track.
