Whether you love to hit the open trail or push your potential on the treadmill, there’s one thing all humans have in common—pain is a must-have. Naturally, we experience muscle aches as a result of ageing or after a workout. Being able to recover faster in order to perform better is the dream of every athlete. Recovery being a vital aspect of your performance as such, here are three important things to think about before you decide what Recovery massage device to buy.
Amplitude & Stall force
𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐀𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞? - the maximum extent of a vibration or oscillation, measured from the position of equilibrium.
The higher the amplitude, the further the attachment head will travel and the deeper the gun will hit. in layman terms, the deeper into the muscle the attachment will penetrate. while cheaper devices only stimulate or should we say vibrate the surface of your skin, Every Recovapro is equipped with an Innovative Brushless motor engineered to precisely deliver 12 mm of Amplitude at a top speed of 55 percussions per second. this results in deep penetration into your muscle fibres.
𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐜𝐞 - the amount of force needed to stop the motor. In essence, the higher the stall force, the more force you can exert on the motor without it stopping. As such, the deeper you can push the device into your muscles for a true deep tissue massage. Recovapro devices can withstand up to 60 pounds of applied pressure—without stalling—so you can most effectively treat the areas that need treating.
So why should you bother about the Amplitude or Stall force you might be wondering, because mere stimulating the surface of your skin wont relieve soreness nor would it release lactic acid build up nor would it improve blood circulation on that area. you are merely, stimulating the skin.
Battery Life & Speed
𝐁𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐋𝐢𝐟𝐞 - Recovapro is powered by genuine3200mah lIthium ion battery which delivers4+ hours of usage. Much like mobile phones, battery life is important for wireless handheld massage guns as no one likes to have to charge their devices after every use. It is especially important for heavy users such as therapists to have a longer device battery life to be able to treat their clients throughout the day. We tend to prefer battery life of at least 180 minutes to minimise charging frequency.The Recovapro also comes with a charging dock.The Charging Dock is an easy, convenient way to charge your Recovapro. The Recovapro can remain in the Charging Dock Stand even when fully charged, making it the perfect place to store your device for quick accessibility.
𝐒𝐩𝐞𝐞𝐝 / 𝐑𝐏𝐌 - RPM stands for revolutions per minute i.e., how many times the massage gun can hit in one minute! Rather than having one speed for everyone, It is more beneficial, however, to have a device that has a range of speeds to select from. The Recovapro has 5-speed selections that users can choose depending on their preference. Lower speeds can be used for warming up muscles or very sore muscles which are more sensitive. Higher speeds can be used for very stiff muscles or deep tight knots.
Noise level & Design
𝐍𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐞/𝐒𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝 𝐋𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥 - When using massage guns, there will inevitably be noise generated by the motor units. This is important to consider as some devices can be uncomfortably noisy, especially when using in an enclosed room, or if using it on areas closer to the ears.
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 that works in harmony with all the internal parts.
If you’re looking at video reviews, it can be quite hard to really get a feel of how loud a device is. Always try out the massage gun in person if possible!
𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐧 - You might think: I don’t really care how my massage gun looks as long as it works. However, the design we are talking about is not about aesthetics but the practical aspect.
For example, the Recovapro is pretty well-balanced in terms of weight distribution which reduces the strain on the wrist and arms when using for prolonged periods of time. Poorly-designed devices may have uneven weight distribution or are bulky and hard to use.
Knowing how your recovery treatment works can help you decide which devices to use. For example, you may need a massage gun device capable of providing both the gentle and relaxing benefits of vibration therapy as well as the targeted and effective ones associated with percussive therapy.
The RECOVAPRO offers the following
