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.
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.

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 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.

I think that iLifeCAM is a product which every athlete should own. It is ideal for transport and can be taken to every away game. Thanks to it, my legs always feel fresh for the next match.
The iLifeCAMs fulfil the requirements of players to a very high degree […] they consider it a great support in the field of recovery after intense games.
After competition and training, this is terrific support for optimal regeneration. Additionally, it is easy to transport, which is important since we compete world-wide.
