Some of our pressotherapy garments are single size, such as the shorts, the pants and arm sleeves.

In any case, within each item’s form, you will find a graphical guide in order to know which is your correct size.
Pressotherapy is a recovery system, which is born from a pneumatic pressure pump, which transfers air and a specific sequential pressure within the different chambers in the pressotherapy garments. This way, lymphatic and blood circulation increase throughout our extremities, which helps eliminate lactic acid and residues within our metabolism. With this and an improved blood flow, we will obtain a higher amount of oxygen and nutrients in our muscles, which will allow us to decrease soreness and accelerate the reconstruction process.
Pressotherapy must not be used if you present any of the following: pregnancy, hypertension or hypotension, deep vein thrombosis, superficial tombphlebitis or arterial insufficiency, infections or inflammations, hypothyroidism… do not hesitate to consult with your doctor beforehand if you suspect you may have any of the above.
Pressotherapy sessions may range between 10 and 90 minutes. Recommended sessions will go from 30 to 45 minutes per session, taking it up to 60 minutes with a mild pressure. These are recommended two hours after training or competition. It is also recommended to apply cold before the treatment, which contracts blood vessels. You can also use pressotherapy as a previous warm up, during 10 or 15 minutes.
Weekly sessions will run according to the user, there is no time or frequency restrictions whenever it is painless and it does not present any counter-productive symptom.
It is important that the legs remain completely horizontal at all moments during the treatment.

Of course, our machine is specifically designed to be portable equipment, which consists of the lightest and most compact machine in the market, facilitating its transportation. You must take into account if you are travelling by airplane to take your device with you since the battery will not be allowed within the airplane hold in any case, so your luggage might be blocked because it is not possible to check in batteries, which are included in our systems.
With our machine, you will receive a basic kit to be able to correct anything that may happen to the system. This includes grease, rubber rings and a pendant for the protections. You will only have to maintain each and every one of the connections perfectly lubricated and if there is any air leak, maybe the joints have suffered too much wearing and need to be replaced. That is all!
Sometimes, when the installation and manipulation is not correct, it is possible that some connections are not well joint together, or that some of the tubes are bent, blocking the air from passing through. Verify the correct installation of the tubes as well as the protective cover, to assure everything is correct. There will be no problem. If you have doubts, you can watch our video tutorial here.
Do not worry; the answer is simple and easy. If this happens, it means that some of the connections have lost the rubber ring, which makes the air leak between connections. Review and add or substitute the rubber ring and problem solved.
There is a common mistake when installing the pressotherapy tubes in the garment. Pressotherapy pressure always goes from the lower part towards the heart, so chamber number 1 will always be farther and will coincide with the longest tube. Review this, if not, it will be as easy as reversing the direction of these. If you have doubts, you can watch our video tutorial here.
Recovery Plus is designed to work at 220V and to be functional throughout Europe, but you must know that, for example, if you are in the U.S.A. your machine will need a power transformer that will allow converting 110V into 220V for a correct functioning.
Our battery system uses a total wearing, which means that our pump will propel air through the battery until the last moment. It is normal that the pump’s performance decreases once the battery does, but it will not stop pumping until the battery has totally ran out. However, do not worry! We have the quickest charger in the market and in less than 2 hours, your battery will be charged again.
The warranty consists of 2 years in machines and 1 year in the rest of the pressotherapy items.
