The difference between our boots is i.a. the number of zones. We offer 4, 6 and 8 zones.
All machines have the same programs. Battery machines have 4 programs and Stationary machines have 6 programs.
The difference is in the boots. A boot with more zones will have a greater flexibility and be better for massage programs.
Flexibility must be seen in relation to the fact that the zoneszones can be switched on and off.
Better massage should be seen in relation to the number of trigger points a boot provides. Thus, each zone represent a trigger point.
Optima Sport Basis K4
Base K4 is mainly used for lymphatic drainage. This boot has the least degree of flexibility due to it's 4 zones. Flexibility is especially good in connection with injuries, as you can turn off zones where your injury is.
Optima Sport Pro K6
Pro K6 is suitable for lymph drainage and massage. The boots has 1 zone for your foot, 2 zones around the calf and 3 zones around the thighs. With Pro K6 you get a nice flexibility in relation to the number of zones that can be switched on and off.
Optima Sport Ultima K8
Ultima K8 suitable for all programs. The boot provides a more in-depth massage than the other boots. The zones on these boots are smaller and are able to better work their way into the muscle. These boots gives you the optimal flexibility, as you get 8 zones that can be turned on and off.
If you have a leg length of about 85 cm or more, you must choose our 100 cm (125 cm full length) boots.

If you are in between 2 sizes, we recommend going with the longest size, as the boots will shrink when they are inflated.

Before training, Optima Sport Recovery Boots can act as a massage to warm up your muscles. Pre-workout sessions are generally 10 to 20 minutes long with a moderate intensity level.
After training - Recovery
We generally recommend taking 20 to 30 minutes in program B (lymphatic drainage) followed by 15 to 30 minutes in one of the massage programs (A, C or D).
If you are in rehabilitation after an injury, you must often reduce the pressure in the boot. Start with 5 to 10 min in program B (lymph drainage) with low pressure (30-150 mmHg). This will provide drainage and blood circulation to the injury and reduce the rehabilitation period. After the 5 - 10 min you may disconnect the chamber or chambers where your injury is located and continue your treatment with the remaining champers. Alternatively, consult with your physiotherapist.
It is normal to feel thirsty and relaxed after finishing treatment.
