The Doctor Life IPC massage devices can be perfectly used for:
- Warming up or cooling down after a sports activity or training
- Prevention of injuries
- Treatment of injuries
- Strengthening the immune system

In case of application during warming- up and cooling -down muscle tension will decrease and muscle recovery will be accelerated by better drainage of waste products from the muscles. The acidification of muscles after exercise thus decreases. Several top performances on the same day such as swimming, skating or athletics is thereby facilitated better. IPC helps to improve blood flow to the muscles and therefore to prevent injuries. If injuries do occur application of IPC could lead to a significantly faster recovery. Many athletes use altitude training to improve oxygen transport , to stimulate the production of red blood cells or they resort to medication. But did you know that IPC will help you as an athlete to improve your oxygen delivery in the lungs naturally?
