I have used Podium Legs for over 6 months now and have sold several sets to both clients, PTs and sports medicine practices.
Look for them to get their FDA approval this spring, but in the until then - here is a great review on them by the Daily Peloton:

And best yet, they retail for under $800!

Normatec is by far the best product in the market. Not only the product is great but their customer service is unreal. I travel over 200,000 miles for work every year and I use the boots on the plane. It is amazing how I feel when I get off the plane. Not only I can train right away but most important I can get to work and feel fresh. Highly recommend Normatec. I used the Recovery pumps at an expo and the different between the 2 products was drastic. If money is an issue purchase the MVP version which cost about $1,650 similar to recovery pump. One last thing, remember how many professional athletes use Normatec and they all paid the full price for their equipment.

I've been using the RevitaPump LX7. At only $529 the price was fair and it works great. www.revitapump.com. They have some "pants" garments coming out soon, and look forward to trying them. I have done my research. A friend of mine uses the PowerPress Digital Sequential Compression pump he purchased for under $700 on Amazon. Its not marketed to athletes, but essentially does the same thing as other "sports recovery pumps". The Recovery Pump, Sport Pump, and Normatec MVP are excellent products. But many of these devices are somewhat similar or rebranded from their medical version. There are various brands of 'pumps" all over Amazon.com. I also heard Podium Legs www.podiumlegs.com are decent and priced fairly, but they are waiting on FDA approval. I don't think you need to spend over a thousand dollars as long as the pump has at least 4 air segments, and inflates with a "sequential gradient" technology. I believe some of brands like the RevitaPump and PowerPress pumps both offer "regular" and "peristaltic" inflation options. So, you get the best of both arguments of Normatec vs. other brands. These in my opinion, are the key qualities. This is America, and its all about marketing. The only one claiming to be USA made is Sport Pump brand www.sportpump.com. Granted some brands may seem more heavy and substantial. But I think they mostly serve the same purpose and have similar warranties, with a few whistles and bells that may or not be worth the price. Some of the cheaper pumps actually have some cool programable feature and an extra garment to address the gluteaI muscles or "glutes". I think the higher prices of Recovery Pump, Normatec MVP, and Vessports pumps are up there because of the all the marketing and event sponsorships they may spend money on. Nothing wrong with that. Are the features and perceived quality justified? Maybe, but the internet allows us to find good alternatives to products. The same reason why Best Buy and Circuit City ran into problems with electronic comparison shopping online . Many of us love our sport, but are on a tight budget. I wanted to educate my fellow athletes with the options out there and maybe save some people money in these tough times.

How do you use them on the plane?

Are you flying business class all the time? When mine are blown up they take up nearly the entire side of a king bed.

And then there is the power. I've never had a powerpoint on my flights.

I call BS but feel free to prove me wrong with a photo of you using them on a flight.

You know what is funny, you can get the same results, lying down, with your legs on the wall. This what an ITU / olympic athlete did when he stayed over my home...

I recently juggled between the MVP boots and Recovery pump. After reading several threads, I decided to go with the MVP boots. I can definitely feel a difference as compared when I wasn't using the boots. I'm pleasantly surprised how much I recover after my tough workouts. My vote goes to normatech.

get comfortable being uncomfortable

I haven't done a comparison of MVP to estim - I have a Compex as well. So, it's a good idea for a head-to-head comparison. Looks like you have landed on the MVP - but in case you're looking for a side-by-side, I wrote a review on my blog earlier this month comparing the two.

Thanks Joel! I'll check it out. I haven't decided either way, but many prefer the Normatec it seems. I have a Globus e-stim, but was wondering if the boots would be more effective.....

Globus and compex are totally different from the 2 pumps.

I have used both globus and compex (bigger fan of compex due to ease of use) and have used normatecs and recovery pumps. I actually own recovery pumps, but that was before I tried the new normatecs. It's the difference between a 1980 ford escort and a 2013 Audi A7. Normatecs have more features and I feel do a better job massaging the legs and relieving stress and build up (I swear I feel the lactic acid being flushed out). The recovery pumps do a great job of reducing the swelling and help with blood circulation, but it is very straight forward. Each cell fills with air up the leg, then releases it all and starts again. The normatecs are programmed with specific sequences to help aide in recovery.

I'm considering the normatecs even though I own a recovery pump already.

Thanks for the great response! That sounds like much of what I'm hearing, but cost pretty much keeps me from Normatech. Save my money, or get cheaper....that's my dilemma. So recovery pumps are better than nothing?
Sell me yours!

Yes, better than nothing. Search the forums here or ebay for used. Just buy new boots though, it can get sweaty from use.

For normatecs deals, Rapp has a 15% discount and if you do a rev3 event, you can probably strike a 25% discount with the reps there or any other event that normatecs is at their expo.

I have the Recovery Pump but I really want the half pants to work upper quads and glutes. Does anyone know if the Revita Pump hoses and connections work with Recovery Pump? They look similiar.

I wish Recovery Pump would make a half pant.

I can't speak for the other brands but i can vouch personally for VES. I was strictly a normatec user for years and was lucky enough to get a chance to try the VES when they first came on the scene. I never went back. The price may be higher for the VES but for me it's worth it if i can actually compete again the next day. The results were that good and I can customize it to what i need on that day. So - the features probably bump the price up but whatever - the results are what im interested in. Note: im not affiliated with VES - just wanted to say that the saying "you get what you pay for" is true in this situation :)
