Also known as pneumatic compression technology, DAC uses a motored device (usually a sleeve or boot) where you can place your limbs. Then, the air is circulated through the machine programmatically, facilitating its inflation, and as a result, controlled pressure is applied to the desired location in massage-like patterns. These DAC devices have been designed to envelop the targeted area completely.
Dynamic air compression has well researched and proven benefits for promoting repair and recovery from muscle damage and providing relief to the muscles following strenuous activity.
Over the past years, much research has been done to demonstrate the use of DAC messages and DAC devices in rapid recovery in sports personnel. However, they are as helpful to a regular person like you and me as an athlete when healing your muscles.
DAC is for you if you are any of the following: - An athlete or endurance trainer - On your feet a lot due to your work - Recovering from a fracture - At a high risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
