CryoAction, the leading supplier of cryotherapy chambers to elite sports has launched a rental fleet of its transportable cryotherapy chambers. The chambers will be delivered to a client’s site and are configured to deliver whole body cryotherapy to up to 4 persons in any single treatment.

CryoAction director Ian Saunders explains “We are responding to the demand from a number of potential clients who need a quick recovery solution that can be deployed and deliver cryotherapy to an entire squad of players in the quickest possible time and with minimal disruption. With our range of rental options, we can meet a short term need for cryotherapy that offers the flexibility of an on-demand service which is permanently on-site throughout the rental period, allowing treatments as and when required, rather than subject to the supplier’s availability as with other rental solutions.”

“In the exciting run to the end of the football season, a number of clubs have engaged with us to provide cryotherapy to help keep their players fresh and performing at their best.” Ian added,”With the massive gains from achieving promotion to the huge pitfalls from relegation, the clubs see cryotherapy a small price to pay for what could be a large marginal gain.”

CryoAction Rental Cryotherapy ChamberCryoAction’s co-founder David Morris added, “The new CryoAction rental units are already proving popular with tournament and other event organisers who want to extend the range of options and facilities available to participating athletes. We also have considerable interest from clubs seeking to help their players prepare for the next season at training camps.”

The 6 metre whole body cryotherapy unit offers an attractive changing area, a state of the art, fully computerised 2-stage cryotherapy chamber and all the equipment necessary to deliver treatments such as specialist footwear, clothing, gloves & hats. A large liquid nitrogen vessel is also included to fuel the unit in collaboration with our partners, BOC.

Comprehensive training on the operation of the unit is offered to our client’s medical staff with CryoAction unique online support assistance available throughout the rental period.

The CryoAction rental cryotherapy chambers are subject to a minimum rental period of two weeks and customers going forward to purchase their own unit, receive 50% of their rental fees refunded against the purchase price.
