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.
