View from the Catwalk: Rays invest in NormaTec athlete recovery technology

Tampa Bay joins the LA Lakers and Boston Red Sox among other teams investing in NormaTec technology.

The Tampa Bay Rays built upon their reputation for world class athlete care with the debut of a new Athlete Recover Room that utilizes technology from NormaTec, announcing the partnership via press release yesterday afternoon.

NormaTec Recovery Systems are cutting edge compression systems that enhance the body’s natural ability to recover. Using NormaTec’s leg, arm, or hip attachments before or after intense workouts or games is intended to rejuvenate muscles and reduce tightness and soreness.

In addition to the home stadium recovery room, the Rays will be utilizing the same equipment on the road, as the technology is portable. The atheletes pictured above can utilize the leg wraps in any location.

Joe Benge, Head Athletic Trainer of the Tampa Bay Rays, explained the partnership as follows:

“Our goals are to keep players injury free and performing at their best year-round; the partnership with NormaTec helps us towards achieving those objectives.”

Consistent with that objective, the Rays have implemented the same recovery room technology at every level of their minor league system.

Other teams with NormaTec recovery rooms include the Boston Red Sox, the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Rams, and Kansas City Chiefs, the NHL’s Florida Panthers and Las Vegas Golden Knights, the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers, and various universities.
