My Top 6 Tips to Maximize Performance!

September 12, 2020

Luck wasn’t on my side again. I went into this race feeling pumped and ready to go, but on the second lap of the bike lap, a dog suddenly ran in front of me. The road for cycling was very wet (it has been raining heavily the past 2 days prior to the race), and very narrow. I couldn’t stop in time and the only thing that went through my mind was I didn’t want to crash into it. So in a reflex action, I braked and also used my left foot to assist me to a halt. But it was a costly… it caused me to have a strain leading from my hamstring up to my glut and I had to pull out of the race.

Founder's Voice

How would you define Recovery?

Finding a firm definition for recovery has always been a question on my mind, especially having spent 20 years in Meditech, and 40 years as an endurance sport athlete and coach.

In reality, recovery is subjective for every person; much like music and art. In the case of someone plagued with excessive swelling — symptomatic of a vascular condition such as lymphedema, diabetes or DVT — recovery can mean a reduction in swelling, improved mobility and an overall enhancement in quality of life.

From a weekend warrior or world class athlete’s perspective, recovery would mean faster healing, resuming training after a significantly shorter resting time; and of course the magic of faster gains or improvements. In the end, great athletes understand this objectivity about recovery — it is only during this stage where the gains and improvements are made.

Our Recovery Systems product line has years of refinement invested for your benefit with cuffs available for treatment of the Legs, Hip and Glutes, Arms and Torso. Not only are battery powered variants of our cuffs available, we are also proud to highlight our Duo System — a world’s first in recovery options where two individuals can now share treatment simultaneously.

Here’s to your personal best, Bring on the Gains!

Michael Lyons,

Founder and CEO
