A fine alternative to compression boots
Compression boots help move metabolic wastes from your legs to your lymph, removes carbon dioxide and lactic acid, and brings in oxygen and nutrients. They speed up recovery from workouts and loosen tight hamstrings, quads, and calves. But the size of compression boots make them inconvenient for travel and they take up the entire space in a backpack.
Normatec Go by Hyperice works just like compression boots but a lot smaller. It delivers dynamic air compression to the calf muscles to increase circulation, reduce pain and tension, and speed up recovery. It's a lot more portable than compression boots and are TSA approved so take it on your flight and use it while you sit to improve blood circulation.
If you work in an office and sit for extended periods of time, the Normatec Go may be the perfect option for improving your blood circulation while seated.
However the Normatec Go does not cover the whole leg like compression boots – only the calves. But the calf may be enough because it is considered as the second heart pumping blood back from your lower body to your real heart. Also, because it only covers the calves, you don't have to full extended your legs to use it. It's a lot easier to use than compression boots and is likely to get more use.
The Normatec Go features 3 zones of overlapping 360º compression, bluetooth for control with the Hyperice App, and seven levels of compression. It also syncs with the other pair to give you a symmetrical massage. At $399, it's a lot cheaper than the normal Normatec compression boots which retails for at least $799.
The battery lasts for about 3 hours and is chargeable via USB-C.
