Many of our athletes max out the pressure with the Boots attachment, but the Hips are a different story. The nature of the attachment makes recovering feel more intense, so the pressure doesn’t need to be set as high. 

 

Here’s how we recommend optimizing your session in the Hips.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px”]

Placement

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Wear the Hips attachment as high as you can while still recovering comfortably. This way, your lower back doesn’t get gypped on recovery. We’ve found the sweet spot is typically placing the top of the attachment just below the chest. A quick reminder: don’t cinch the Hips too tightly! When the attachment is fully inflated, you don’t want to be uncomfortable because of the buckles.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px”]

Pressure Setting

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Try the Hips attachment at a lower setting than you think and raise the pressure to a comfortable point as needed.  For example, if you typically recover with the Boots at 180 mmHg, we recommend trying the Hips attachment between 120-140 mmHg.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px” hover_enabled=”0″ sticky_enabled=”0″]

Prong Care

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Most people prefer the Boots and Arms attachments on Mode B. The Hips attachment is a different story. Some athletes love the Hips on Mode A, our therapeutic mode, while others prefer Mode B, our recovery mode. That means you get to test it out. Try your Hips on Mode A for 10 minutes. Then, reset the system on Mode B to see what you like.

You want to keep your system nice for as long as possible. The good news is that it’s an easy product to keep in mint condition. Our new systems come with a comprehensive two-year warranty. Even if something crazy happens to your unit or attachments, we’ve got you covered. We stand behind our products and customers, and have ensured that our control units and attachments are robust and made to last. 

 

To add to your peace of mind, here are some great tips to remember.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px”]

Tip 1: Cleaning Attachments

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

It’s simple. Unzip the attachment and grab a Clorox wipe to clean the interior. Feel free to do the exterior as well. Then allow your attachments to air dry. Cleaning is doable between sessions with your clients or for your own sessions at home.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px”]

Tip 2: Attachment Zippers

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

The zippers on our attachments are user-friendly. They’re still zippers, though, and wear a bit with use. To avoid overuse, slide the attachments on and off without unzipping. The main purpose for the zippers comes when cleaning or adding an expander to an attachment.

*The following two tips are for those who have attachments with our original prong design (the four nubs stick out from the casing and are covered with a cap).

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px”]

Tip 3: Prong Care

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Grab some chapstick or vaseline and add it to the prongs to keep plugging and unplugging attachments easier.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px”]

Tip 4: Prong Caps

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Each attachment comes with caps to place on the prongs. Be sure to snap these on after each use to keep the prongs functioning well.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default”][et_pb_text admin_label=”SubTitle” _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_text_color=”#000000″ header_2_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_2_text_align=”center” header_2_font_size=”30px”]

Bonus Tip

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Hang your attachments from a hook or hanger to avoid folding and unfolding each time you use the system. You’ll probably find yourself using the system more knowing that you don’t have to deal with the inconvenience of folding. 

 

Stick with these tips, and your system will stay in great shape. Let us know your favorite ways to keep your own system in top condition by tagging @RapidReboot on Instagram. 

 

Happy rebooting!

We want you fully equipped with the best recovery for the best value possible. That’s why we’re letting you in on the secret behind sharing your system with friends, family, and teammates no matter your height difference. Because we get it; We do the same thing!

 

Say you and your partner are thinking of sharing a system. Many times, one is taller than the other, and you need to know if buying two sizes of the Boots is the best option.

 

Rather than purchasing two sets of boots, consider going with the Boots and Hips attachments to complement the sizing difference. This option recovers the largest portion of your body.

 

Here’s how it works. Our Hips attachment covers from the lower back down to just above the knees. If you’re too tall for a medium Boots attachment, but that’s the size your partner fits in, we’ve got your back. Snag the medium Boots to share, and use the Hips attachment to recover the quads and hamstrings of the taller partner. 

 

With the Boots and Hips to share, you recover the entire bottom half of your body. When your glutes, hammies, or hips are sore, you’re both covered. And your sore feet, ankles, and calves are also good to go. 

 

The Hips attachment is our secret weapon and a crowd favorite. 

 

Looking at sharing one Boots attachment? We’ve still got you covered. Often, a couple can share a single pair of Boots by purchasing the size that will fit the taller of the two. When the shorter partner wants to use the Boots, simply turn off the top compartment using the button on the Control Unit to keep the  hamstring compartment from inflating. This way, both partners can comfortably use one attachment. 

 

So if you’re on the market but worried about sizing differences, fear not. We’re here for you. 

*Pro tip: Try the Hips attachment on A mode and thank us later.

Our minds control it all when it comes to game day, and most of us don’t train them with the same intensity that we do our bodies. It’s hard to make time to sit still on a hectic day. That’s why we love recovering in Rapid Reboot to unwind both our minds and bodies after a particularly busy day. A two-in-one never looked so good.

 

Rapid Reboot has session run times anywhere from 10-30 minutes, so it gives just enough time to fit in a short meditation or to indulge in a longer half-hour session with some time to reflect and work on the mind.

 

One of the most invaluable benefits of Rapid Reboot is that it allows you to dramatically improve your recovery and performance while giving you time to relax, unwind, and focus your undivided attention on other things, whether you’re in the training room watching game film or on the couch at home with those you love. 

 

Ironman Champ and Rapid Reboot athlete Ben Hoffman loves using his time in the boots to mentally unwind and connect with family. With so much time dedicated to training and eating well, it’s nice to embrace an active recovery while taking your mind off the rigorous routine.

 

So how can you capitalize on time rebooting? Try these simple hacks.

Meditate

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.5.7″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Find a meditation process that you like on an app or on YouTube. One of our favorites is Headspace. All you need to do for most guided meditation sessions is click play. 

 

One tip we recommend is avoiding a certain expectation for your meditation. If you had a bad training week or are feeling overwhelmed from a tough day, it’s easy to add pressure to your meditation. Avoid setting expectations, and simply focus on clicking play. After time, you’ll notice a big change in your capacity to deal with tough situations, especially on game day.

Practice Positive Thinking

This one’s also a favorite because we can practice positive thinking anywhere. With gyms and outdoor spaces closed, we know training became a real challenge this year. COVID-19 provided a natural opportunity to focus on mindset and mental toughness. 

 

There are many directions you can take your positive thinking. One route is reciting a few positive affirmations each time you recover. Another is embracing your imaginative side and picturing yourself going through competition day. Picture it all. What you’re wearing, who is around you, what the startline or competition looks like. Take yourself through the entire competition with an air of confidence knowing you trained, and you’re ready. When we go through a situation with our minds, we are much more confident and ready to take on the situation in reality when it matters.

 

After a solid routine of practicing positive thinking, your mental toughness will undoubtedly improve, and we know you’ll bring the edge.

Although Rapid Reboot is best known for helping some of the world’s best athletes recover faster and perform better, it also has benefits outside of athletic training.

 

In fact, dynamic compression therapy has its origins in the medical space and is used to treat a number of medical conditions. This is why Rapid Reboot is FDA-regulated and can actually be prescribed by doctors. 

 

Many of the indications, or issues, that Rapid Reboot can be used to treat have to do with blood and lymphatic flow. Complications like chronic venous insufficiency and lymphedema are two common, yet crippling diseases.

 

The thing is, even healthy people can experience the negative effects of poor blood and lymphatic fluid flow (often called edema).

 

Here are our top 3 suggested times to use Rapid Reboot outside of recovering from physical training.

TRAVELING

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.5.6″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

You know the feeling. You’ve spent hours sitting in a car driving and you finally get to your destination. You get out and your legs feel like weights and your ankles are swollen. After a long flight, this feeling can be even worse.

 

Gravity has a constant affect on your body, and especially on the fluids your body is trying to circulate. When you sit in one position too long, blood and lymphatic fluid can pool in your legs. 

 

When traveling, take your Rapid Reboot with you, especially the Boots. Use them before and after sitting for long periods of time to keep fresh fluid in your legs. This can mitigate the negative effects of stagnant blood flow and edema, as well as help you feel fresh and alert. 

 

It’s like packing your personal massage therapist with you in your bags, except you don’t have to make an appointment and you don’t have to pay for every session.

Before Working Out

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.5.7″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Increasing blood flow, clearing the lymphatic system, and relieving stiffness in muscles and ligaments (which means greater flexibility and mobility) through targeted, dynamic compression is exactly what you should be doing as part of your warm-up before you train or compete.

 

The former director of the US Olympic Committee (USOC) Recovery Center in Colorado Springs, CO, William Sands, PhD, found that “compression of the lower extremities may provide a means of enhancing the rheological properties of the lower extremities without resorting to extreme temperatures, expensive body work, or stretching.” (link)

 

Other studies indicate that the benefits dynamic compression can be key to “prehabilitation,” or injury prevention.1,2 And of course, injuries can be extremely expensive, as well as take weeks, if not months, of recovery and rehabilitation. 

 

So, before you hit the gym, track, field, court, or the road for a run or bike ride, we recommend at least 10 minutes in the attachment of your choice, depending on what activity you’ll be doing. Getting your body ready to perform could make all the difference.

Restless Legs

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.5.7″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Avenir – Collection||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”22px” text_line_height=”2em” header_font=”Cooper Hewitt Heavy 2|900||on|||||” header_font_size=”40px”]

Ever get restless legs just when you’re trying to get to bed?

 

Restless legs can be a symptom of many things, from stress to improper blood flow. Restless legs syndrome, according to the Mayo Clinic, is even believed to be caused by chemical imbalances. (see article)

 

While more clinical research needs to be done, we’ve documented numerous testimonials that illustrate how Rapid Reboot can help. 

 

Learn how Rapid Reboot saved this customer from his restless legs.

 

Using even a light session, like 10 minutes on Mode A, can help calm your legs to allow you to get to sleep. And sleep is another major factor in recovery and athletic performance.
