Faster recovery for tired legs

Who hasn?t felt it? Jobs where you?re on your feet all day and by evening you have heavy, tired legs. Or from sports and fitness training after really pushing yourself.

The same principle applies to all of it. Blood brings oxygen and nutrients to your cells while the lymphatic system transports the cellular waste products away.

Stagnation of the lymphatic fluid means that your cells are exposed to a toxic environment and work less efficiently than they should. Some have problems draining the stagnating lymphatic fluid from their systems. This leads to uncomfortable swelling in the tissues, mainly the legs and the ankles.
In sports and fitness, the important thing after intensive stress is to lower the blood lactose level (BLa) again to achieve a shorter regeneration phase.

The newest scientific studies have shown that lymphatic therapy effects physiological changes which are indicative of improved muscle regeneration.

Dynamic Compression Enhances Pressure-to-Pain Threshold in Elite Athlete Recovery: Exploratory Study.
Link to Original

Athlete recovery-adaptation is crucial to the progress and performance of highly trained athletes. The purpose of this study was to assess peristaltic pulse dynamic compression (PPDC) in reducing short-term pressure-to-pain threshold (PPT) among Olympic Training Center athletes after morning training. [?]
Difference score results showed that the experimental group's PPT threshold improved after PPDC treatment immediately and persisted the remainder of the day after afternoon practice. The control group showed no statistical change. We conclude that PPDC is a promising means of accelerating and enhancing recovery after the normal aggressive training that occurs in Olympic and aspiring Olympic athletes.

Peristaltic pulse dynamic compression of the lower extremity enhances flexibility.
Link zum Original

This study investigated the effects of peristaltic pulse dynamic compression (PPDC) on range-of-motion (ROM) changes in forward splits. Serious stretching usually involves discomfort and large time investments. Tissue structural changes and stretch tolerance have heretofore been considered the primary mechanisms of enhanced ROM. The PPDC treatment was computer controlled.[...] The PPDC treatment was 15 minutes of seated PPDC [...] The rapid acute changes in ROM (PPDC: right 25.3%, left 33.3%; CONT: right 12.2%, left 1.0%) support the premise that changes in ROM were dependent on mechanisms other than tissue structural changes and/or stretch tolerance. PPDC provides a means of rapidly enhancing acute ROM requiring less discomfort and time.

Here is how it works:

The leg cuffs which are available in three different sizes and are put on in pairs.

The cuffs automatically and gently massage the legs, starting from the foot and rising in five stages up to the thigh depending on the program, section-by-section or intermittently. This supports blood circulation and loosens tense muscles.

  • relaxes heavy, tired legs
  • relaxes cramped muscles
  • supports blood circulation and increases lymphatic drainage
  • can reduce water retention
  • can stimulate movement of stagnant lymphatic fluid
  • may relieve swelling and pain in the legs and ankles associated with venous insufficiency, obesity, or prolonged standing

  • with regular use

  • can support weight reduction and reduction of toxins
  • promotes volume reduction on arms and legs
  • for thromboembolic prophylaxis
  • Relief of muscle pain
  • Massage and relaxation
  • can contribute to a better skin appearance by promoting the metabolism in skin cells and tightening the skin by increasing the elasticity of the skin (orange peel skin)

Active regeneration for back pain

A result of our modern world. Due to lack of movement, largely sedentary work such as office and computer work or especially excessive use of the Smartphone, the so-called “Smombie Effect” causes joint misalignment and muscular imbalances.

Smombie is a made-up word derived from “Smartphone” and “Zombie” and refers to people who are so distracted by constantly staring at their Smartphones that they are hardly aware of their environment anymore.

An imbalance in the muscles leads to them pulling unevenly on the joints. This brings the joints out of their optimal position and wear out. This causes joint pains, muscle hardening and back pain.

The WHO and doctors warn against a new age, the age of total exhaustion and degeneration. Like an invisible virus, exhaustion and degeneration are spreading through the population like a pandemic. In just a few years, ¼ of world population is affected, more than 1.8 billion people!

  • More than half of all officer workers now feel exhausted
  • Every fourth person feels massive symptoms of exhaustion
  • More and more people complain about stress

It’s this easy:

The iLifeCAM stretching mat lengthens and stretches the spine very gently, five built-in airbags are automatically, periodically inflated and emptied by the control system. This creates space between the vertebral bodies and reduces pressure on the spinal column.

  • Counteracts the effects of “Smombie Syndrome” and generative spinal column
  • Can reduce back pain
  • Supports blood circulation
  • Loosens tense muscles
  • Relieves stress
  • Prevention

iLifeCAM - Compressed Air Massager

Fit and trim with Bodyslim

If our body is not properly challenged, it loses its capabilities. Muscles that we don’t use slowly atrophy. With sedentary activities we frequently stay in the same position for long periods. This leads to muscle tension. Muscles used to exercise are the best prevention against back pain. The abdominal musculature is just as important as the back musculature.

It’s this easy:

The Bodyslim applicator is put on the hip area and stimulates both the forward abdominal area laterally on the hips and on the lower back. Its total of 14 airbags alternately massage the lower torso area to provide for better circulation in the skin and the tissue underneath it.

  • Loosens the musculature in the abdominal, back and gluteal area
  • Can reduce back pain
  • Supports the blood circulation in the tissues
  • Massages in the lumbar spine area
  • Beneficial massage and relaxation
  • Prevention

  • in regular application

  • Can support weight loss and reduction of toxins
  • Promotes volume reduction on the abdomen and hips through passive massage

The functional principle of far infrared radiation for supporting weight loss

Far infrared heat radiation (FIR) with the wavelength of 7-15 micrometers (µm) is, as shown on the radiation diagram, a small section of natural sunlight. The deciding factor in the effect of this heat radiation is that it exactly corresponds to the heat radiation of the human body which also has a wavelength of 7-15µm. For that reason, these far infrared rays can penetrate the skin 5-7 cm into the body and warm the cells such as skin, muscles, blood and lymph nodes.

The “resonant absorption” of far infrared rays through our body cells generates vibration and rotation effects at the molecular level, which in turn at a physiological level results in improved microcirculation, opening the capillaries with increased blood circulation, increased metabolic rate and splitting water molecules that are loaded with toxins.

Areas of application

Private users can apply the far infrared heat rays to get deep relaxation, to relieve muscle tension and back pain, activate circulation, treat skin problems, for general health care, to strengthen the immune system, for treating colds, sinus problems and especially to support detoxification processes and reduction of weight and girth.

Doctors, healing practitioners, physical therapists, massage practices, etc. use far infrared heat application as a supporting treatment since it activates the body’s own healing, supports it and intensifies it.

iLifeFIR for preventative healthcare

The effect of deep heating using an infrared heating system is comparable with a fever reaction in the body. The fever reaction makes the body able to kill bacteria and viruses or greatly inhibit their reproduction and at the same time increase the number of white blood cells that fight infectious diseases. This is the ideal preventative care.

The famed physician Parmenides, who lived in antiquity, more than 2,000 years ago said:
“Give me the chance to artificially induce a fever, and I will heal every disease.”

    Far infrared rays are very pleasant, relaxing, soothing and can be used in support of:
  • Detoxification processes, blood purification, improvement of blood flow
  • Indigestion, stomach and intestinal problems, gastritis
  • Varicose veins, skin irritation, eczema and atopic dermatitis
  • Asthma, sinusitis, neuropathy
  • Muscle-, joint-, nerve- and scar pain
  • Stiffness of joints and limbs, strains and sports injuries
  • Inflammation, arthritis, rheumatism weak immune system
  • Improved oxygen and nutrient transport
  • Increase in mass transfer between blood and tissue
  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system and tissue detoxification
  • Increased activity of leukocytes, with increase in immune competence
  • Promoting regeneration and healing
  • Improved microcirculation through strong rotational and vibrational effects at the molecular level
  • Splitting and excretion of toxins trapped in water molecule clusters

That's what science says

The Compressed Air Massage (CAM) is a procedure that can be used for apparative application of a pneumatic alternating pressures which are used with the applicators for extending the spinal column or for massage, anti-edema therapy and promoting circulation in the extremities. The compression supports e.g. deeper veins in the legs in their natural function and strengthens blood recirculation to the heart.
The pressure is generated at defined intervals by an attached pump. The pressure intensity, duration of pressure, and the sequence of pressure in the five air-filled chambers can be regulated as needed and by good health.

Massage can reduce swelling

Lymph drainage massage is a special technique against swelling. It helps to keep the lymph drainage system in proper function by purging liquid cellular wastes, which cause swelling. Massage can help reduce swelling by relaxing t he muscles and securing proper blood circulation.

Massage provides for better blood flow

For more rapid wound healing an adequate flow of blood and oxygen is required. It is important to keep the blood flow at the normal level, since this is the nutrient supplier for the affected area. The majority of the therapeutic massage techniques promote a good blood and oxygen flow in the entire body.

Massage reduces the time required for postoperative healing

Thanks to the improved blood flow, massage therapy improves the feeding of nutrients in the body and reduces the time required to heal from surgery.

Massage helps promote flexibility and mobility

Massage also helps to promote flexibility in muscles and joints. When an illness forces people to sit or remain lying down, the muscles atrophy and the joints stiffen. Massage is the best alternative for warming up these muscles and joints and make them fit, increasing flexibility and more rapid mobility.
