Saracens Rugby Club, the current holders of the Premiership and European Champions Cup, have delivered an early Christmas present to their players in the form of a CryoAction transportable cryotherapy chamber. The unit was installed at the club’s training ground, in time for the Christmas Eve fixture with Newcastle Falcons.

The chamber is the largest installed by CryoAction, the leaders in supplying cryotherapy chambers to elite sports, and is capable of delivering treatments to 5-6 players. The cryotherapy chamber offers an extreme cold modality, with the players experiencing temperatures as low as -160°C for a period of 3 minutes. The treatment enables Saracens’ players to quickly recover from the fatigue and intensity of the modern game of rugby as well as helping them to resist injuries and boosting their ability resist infections and increase the quality of sleep.

CryoAction’s team worked closely with Saracens’ operations and medical teams to ensure the transfer of best practice from the company’s other installation at clients such as Premier League champions, Leicester City, Everton Football Club and others. The integration of cryotherapy into Saracens’ match preparation and recovery protocols will be the subject of co-operation between the staff and CryoAction personnel.

CryoAction director, David Morris, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Saracens to our growing list of elite sports clients. To have the current Premiership and European Champions Cup holders, integrating a CryoAction unit is a tremendous validation of our position as the leading provider of cryotherapy and is testimony to the work that we have done to develop the leading technology supported by leading partnerships with the experts in the sector”.

CryoAction worked in conjunction with their partners, BOC, to facilitate the deployment. In collaborating, the companies ensured that Saracens will enjoy the advantage of leading technology and services, underpinned by support services and total compliance with safety standards.

Everton Football Club have, this week, become the latest Premiership club to install a whole body cryotherapy chamber at their Finch Farm training ground, supplied by the leaders in the cryotherapy sector – CryoAction.

Following in the path of current Premier League champions Leicester City, Watford FC and AFC Bournemouth to name a few, Everton’s cryochamber has been installed within a purpose built CryoAction transportable unit. This large 7 metre facility allows up to 4 players at a time to use the cryotherapy recovery modality, whilst being cooled to temperatures as low as -160°C during an average 3 minute treatment.

David Morris, Director of CryoAction said, “We are delighted to welcome Everton FC as our latest client. With a club so rich in history, it is wonderful to see new technologies, such as ours, being readily adopted by the medical staff and players. A number of the players have used cryotherapy while on training camps or international duty, but for a club to invest in the technology used by so many nowadays, it is a real statement of intent and a commitment to the well-being of the players.”

CryoAction continues to show its dominance in supply of cryotherapy technology, with increased delivery of units from their manufacturing base in Poland to both rugby and football clubs before the busy Christmas period, in order to meet a growing demand which, at times, is proving difficult given the increasing recent popularity of the cryotherapy treatments.

Competitive advantage

David Morris continues, “Given the rise in popularity, naturally we have seen start-up companies emerge and attempt to sell into the elite market. Thankfully for CryoAction, many clubs have realised that all too often, the desperate ‘too good to believe’ offers are just that. CryoAction’s superior technology and full service proposition includes the likes of partnerships with gas giant BOC, ; safety, medical certification, training, service and support etc. This is taken into account when selecting CryoAction as the cryotherapy supplier of choice.

“Our latest installation at Everton is an example of working in conjunction with the club to ensure that not only do we offer the leading technology in the market but also that it incorporates the club’s branding. We take great care with the aesthetic appearance of our units, both externally and internally. This helps to ensure the adoption of our treatment in a unit that is attractive on the eye.
