What is Rapid Reboot?
Rapid Reboot is an athlete-oriented recovery technology company that makes reliable, dynamic pneumatic compression boots for every athlete at every level in every sport – without the price tag of other brands.
Using pneumatic (air) compression, the pump pressurizes the different chambers in the boots at different intervals over multiple cycles. In medical and athletic research, this type of compression is referred to by a variety of names, including “intermittent,” “external dynamic,” and “sequential” pneumatic compression.
The pressurized compartments in the boots squeeze your legs, mobilizing fluids and speeding up your body’s natural process of filtering lactic acid, metabolites, and other debris that build up after exercise-induced trauma out of your blood.
Intermittent, dynamic pneumatic compression is a proven way of improving blood circulation and driving higher volumes of healthy, filtered, and oxygen-rich blood to your muscles as they rebuild. This is what significantly reduces the time it takes you to recover and get back to training. Research also reveals multiple additional benefits. For example, dynamic compression mitigates stiffness, increases ROM (range of motion), helps prevent DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), reduces swelling and inflammation, facilitates greater protein absorption, and, over time, enhances muscle performance and longevity.
“Rapid Reboot is an integral part of my training and recovery protocol… I love the comfortable fit, the accelerated fill, and the obvious recovery and pre-workout activation benefits for my muscles. Recovery is just as essential as the punishment I put myself through in training, and Rapid Reboot helps keep me healthy and primed for the
“It is important for me to keep my legs fresh. Rapid Reboot allows me to do just that, better than any product I have tried. The fit is great, the settings and overall feel of the boots are a big favorite of mine. Rapid Reboot has helped me recover faster from intense training so that I am ready
to attack each workout.”
“I’m an avid user of the rapid reboot, not only because it helps me recover after a long race weekend, but all of the attachments make it really convenient for me to recover wherever, and whenever. I take both my leg and arm attachments with me when I travel, and have really felt a difference during the week after using them to recover on Saturday nights after my races.”
“The boots have been an incredible recovery tool for my running and additional cycling I am up to. It has become a habit that after a long day of training I slip into the boots for a recovery session, and low and behold I am ready to get back at it the next day. Rapid Reboot should be an essential piece in everyone’s training kit.”
Meet your recovery system
The Rapid Reboot recovery system offers easy-to-use compression technology with an intuitive interface and customizable settings. You can select the recovery session mode, duration, pressure, and even deselect specific sections in the boots to avoid compressing certain parts of your leg: i.e., your foot and ankle, calf, knee, and thighs.
Mode A (Peristaltic): Starting with the foot and progressing up the leg, each section compresses, then decompresses before the next section compresses. Once the top section (thigh) decompresses, the cycle begins again.
Mode B (Recovery): Starting with the foot and progressing up the leg, each section compresses and holds until the entire boot is compressed. All four sections then decompress simultaneously before the cycle begins again.
Adjusting the pressure is easy: increase and decrease pressure by pressing the plus (+) and minus (-) icons respectively, adjusting for comfort. Decrease the pressure if you experience pain. It does not require a lot of pressure for you to get the benefit of the dynamic compression, so if necessary, start at a low setting. You can increase pressure from there as desired.
While the compression pump is active, a blinking light on the display will appear under the POSITION setting, indicating the current position of the compression cycle, whether on your foot and ankle, calf, knee, or thigh. To deactivate compression to a certain section, pause the pump by pressing START, select the desired section (light is off), then press START to resume. Follow these same steps to reactivate compression (light is on) to a certain section.
Choose between three recovery session durations – 10, 20, or 30 minutes – based on your recovery needs. When active, a light will indicate your current time duration. . For example, if you selected 30 minutes, the light will shift from the 30 minute to the 20 minute setting once you have 20 minutes remaining. The light will then shift to the 10 minute setting once you have 10 minutes or less remaining.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I use it?
Rapid Reboot is ideal right after a workout, race, or event, especially after a long, arduous one. However, you can use the boots after a long day, anytime your legs are feeling sore, or whenever you feel you need to reboot!
Another important thing to remember is that while Rapid Reboot can help with recovery after one use, helping your body recover is an investment of time and requires consistency. In other words, make a habit of using Rapid Reboot!
Also, remember to eat well and get enough sleep. Dynamic compression is an important part of recovery, but it’s not the only part.
How long do I use it?
Rapid Reboot comes with three time settings – 10, 20, and 30 minutes. Use these depending on the intensity of your training, race, or event. To recover from a long, arduous workout, for example, you’ll want to use the boots for at least 20 or 30 minutes. For a quick reboot or pre-workout session, 10 minutes should be enough to make your legs and body feel great!
Is it FDA cleared?
Yes. The Rapid Reboot system is a Class II device that has a certificate of registration with the FDA (Cert. No. 2006US124518). Because it is a Class II device, it does not require the designation “FDA Approved.” It is, however, FDA cleared.
Although devices like Rapid Reboot have a variety of medical applications, if you have existing medical conditions such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, or have had a stroke or embolism in the past, we encourage you to ask your doctor before using Rapid Reboot regularly. Your doctor may advise you to use Rapid Reboot differently based on your individual medical needs.
