The Recovapro uses percussion therapy to target muscle pain  If you work out a lot or play a sport then you will know just how painful muscle soreness can be. The day after a heavy fitness session, a simple flight of stairs can become an unconquerable mountain. Lifting yourself off the toilet becomes your Everest. The go-to response to ease burning calves and aching glutes is normally to jump on a foam roller and flatten out your muscles until the pain subsides. But sports science experts aren’t 100% sold on the universal benefits of foam rolling, and new technologies could actually offer easier and more effective ways to relieve muscle pain and speed up recovery times. 

The Recovapro looks and sounds intimidating. It is an innovative ‘gun’ with a soft Handle and a power button that controls the speed. Turn it on and the power it exhibits is kind of scary – and Quiet.

 

The idea is that you place the attachment end against your aching muscles and the gun does all the work for you – you don’t have to press hard or massage the area – just hold it lightly against your sorest spots. It’s a far cry from the grunting, flailing mess you become whenever you foam roll in the gym.

The Recovapro aims to make it super simple to heal your whole body. The gun is lightweight and versatile, so you can reach even tricky areas – like your back and shoulders – without too much trouble. It’s mechanically powered, so the kinetic energy used to knead your muscles comes entirely from the device, not from you. Meaning recovery can be just about recovery – rather than another workout. 

Recovapro houses a powerful industrial-grade Japanese motor, engineered to precisely deliver 12 mm of Amplitudeat a top speed of 55 percussions per second on the body.

Every Recovapro device incorporates state-of-the-art sound insulation techniques to provide an 80% quieter experience from all other models in the market, without compromising our strict performance requirements.

Other massage guns produce annoying rumbling noise due to the motor's motion which affects users' experience. Recovapro overcome this by designing an efficient motor which works in harmony with all the internal parts

Recovapro's powerful Brushless motor has a 5-speed setting which makes it suitable for users of all fitness levels. The only Percussion device to utilize Smart Touch Technology allowing the device to be switched OFF at any level by merely Holding down the Speed button for two seconds.

Featuring differing precisely engineered shapes, each Attachment is doctor-tested and made of innovative material, which is antimicrobial and non-porous. Recovapro attachments glide easily on skin and clothes, while lotions, oils, and sweat can be easily wiped away, making them more hygienic

Is foam rolling effective for muscle soreness? 

Foam rolling is everywhere. There are more than 600,000 videos on YouTube explaining different foam rolling techniques and how to target different muscles. From elite athletes to casual gym-goers – foam rolling has become embedded in the fitness conversation. And it is great that we are all paying more attention to recovery and injury prevention when it comes to working out. But despite its prevalence, there is still limited information about just how effective foam rolling is for muscle soreness. While most fitness experts seem to agree that foam rolling is better for your muscles than doing nothing, there are some who claim that it can actually be dangerous when done incorrectly.

So what is the truth? And what is the best way to actually use foam rolling to your advantage? ‘Foam rolling can be a great method for assisting the reduction of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). It is one of the multiple strategies we can employ to aid the recovery process,’ explains Joe Delaney, personal trainer at Ultimate Performance. ‘It is one method people can use to help shift the build-up of lactic acid accumulated from a heavy training session. ‘Foam rolling can help bring new blood into the targeted areas which can assist in the recovery process. ‘Furthermore, as we get sore, we tend to avoid wanting to move those sore muscles, so foam rolling can help increase the range of motion too. ‘Overuse can cause bruising, but this is in the extreme. Excessive foam rolling can result in bruising. ‘Use foam rolling as one recovery modality post-training. Low impact steady state bike riding, especially with DOMS in the legs, can also have similar effects with improving blood flow. ‘Most importantly, no amount of cool downs, stretching or foam rolling will help alleviate DOMS if you are not consuming an adequate amount of protein. Protein is the key to rebuilding and repairing damaged tissue.
