RecoveryAir FAQs

We put together all the resources you need to get started with your RecoveryAir system, including finding the intensity level, session-time, and more that's right for you. Click here to view RecoveryAir Quick Start Guides for all generations, and more.

You can use your RecoveryAir system anytime, as it features dedicated modes for warm-up and recovery as well as extensive customization options (PRO model only) to tailor your recovery to your needs. It's also a great option for decompressing after a long day before bed. Sit back, relax, and recover hands-free.

Theoretically, you can use RecoveryAir for as long as you like, as long as you do not experience pain or discomfort. If you feel discomfort when using RecoveryAir devices, decrease the intensity of the compression (treatment pressure), decrease the hold time (how long the boots stay inflated at the end of each cycle) or increase the release time (duration between treatment cycles). If you feel pain, immediately stop using the device.

Cleaning the pump/device (Prime and PRO only): Disconnect the device from any electrical outlets before cleaning. Let it dry completely before reconnecting it to the electrical outlet. Wipe clean using a slightly damp cloth. Do not allow any moisture or liquids to enter the device.

Cleaning JetBoots: Avoid liquid cleaners around the console at the bottom of the foot and the control panel at the top of the boot.

Cleaning the boot/garment: Gently wipe the external and internal surfaces of the boots/garment using a soft cloth, warm water not exceeding 100F, and a mild detergent. Do not submerge in liquid or allow liquid to enter the air inlets of the boot/garment. Wipe dry using a soft towel only. When dry, the external and internal surfaces of the boot/garment may be wiped down with 70% alcohol or with appropriate alcohol-based disinfectant. Store out of direct sunlight.

Yes. RecoveryAir can be used along with other products in Therabody’s ecosystem to form a powerful recovery routine, using the different therapies (modalities) to attend to different needs at various points throughout your day – no matter your age, activity level or lifestyle.

If you want an energizing boost before your run or when you first wake up in the morning, Theragun is there for you with the percussive power you need and can be applied to almost anywhere on your body.

On your feet all day or just completed an intense run/training session? Before you target areas with Theragun, wind down with a longer RecoveryAir session while you read or watch TV to really get a full flush of the legs and increase circulation – no effort required.

Theragun is an active, versatile way to hone in on any one muscle or area, while RecoveryAir provides a broader, passive option to addressing circulation in the body.

RecoveryAir can also be used in conjunction with PowerDot, Therabody’s electrical stimulation device. Both devices are best used when the body is relaxed and sitting. You can pull on your RecoveryAir boots on your legs while using PowerDot on your upper body (lower back, abdomen, shoulders, traps).

Alternatively, if your quads, hamstrings or calves need more targeted attention from PowerDot, use RecoveryAir Sleeves up top to flush the larger muscles in your arm, torso and back.
