With 88 medals, the US Speedskating team is America’s most decorated winter Olympic sports team. This year, as part of an increased focus on athlete recovery, US Speedskating has partnered with NormaTec’s sophisticated recovery technology for their athletes. As a Proud Supplier to US Speedskating, NormaTec is providing PULSE PRO Systems with attachments for legs and hips to both short track and long track speedskaters.

“Speedskating is an extremely demanding sport that requires hours of rigorous training to reach the top,” said Shane Domer, Sports Science Director for the US Speedskating teams. “As a result, we are always searching for ways to speed our athletes’ recovery so that they can endure a difficult training regimen.  We rely on NormaTec to reduce muscle soreness, and enhance overall recovery to ensure that our athletes are prepared for their next session."

The NormaTec PULSE Series uses patented compression technology to provide rapid athlete recovery. Using NormaTec boosts circulation to the limbs, rejuvenates sore muscles, and reduces pain. Adding NormaTec to their training and recovery protocols puts US Speedskating amongst the 97% of pro teams and growing number of Olympic teams who already rely on NormaTec’s technology.

“We are very proud to work with US Speedskating on this initiative,” affirms Gilad Jacobs, CEO of NormaTec. “Anybody who has watched this sport knows the extreme power of these athletes, and it is a tremendous honor to help them recover and be at their absolute best on the ice.”
