Case Study Team GB

Ahead of the Rio Olympics, Team GB rugby 7’s team used cryotherapy in order to recover quickly from the intense training schedule at their training camp prior to leaving for the Olympics. Arriving fresh due to the wellness benefits gleaned as a result of improved REM sleep patterns, and injury free they went on to pick up an Olympic Silver medal.

Due to all of the CryoAction units being rented out at the time, we used our partners (BOC) 2-3 person mobile unit, locating the system at The Lensbury hotel London, the teams training ground.

“In preparation for the Rio Olympic Games, we forged an excellent relationship with CryoAction to enhance our use of cryotherapy as part of our recovery processes. I believed that the use of cryotherapy would give us a very specific mode of recovery, within a very specific preparation period, immediately prior to a planned taper heading in to long haul travel and the Olympic village environment.
