Case Study Watford

In an effort to keep up with current recovery trends, as well as reduce injury levels at the club within its relatively small 1st team squad, the need for cryotherapy was established following successes as other clubs, and CryoAction were engaged.

Product Installed

Watford, like so many clubs did not have the appropriate level of available space inside the training facility itself, so a 3-4 person Transportable unit was the product of choice.

After completing the necessary external civils, and electrical engineering, the Vessel first came to site and was lifted into place early morning quickly followed by the Transportable unit itself, which was lifted off the lorry and placed onto the newly made slab.

By adding the external fill pipe from the vessel allowing for ease of refuelling by our partners BOC, CryoAction carried out the training to Watford’s medical staff in the afternoon resulting in us being off site inside 8 hours – from start to finish.

Subsequently, after our departure appropriate walling went up to protect both the vessel but also to blend in with the brand new media centre located only metres away.

“We’ve used cryotherapy to great effect, immediately realising the benefits it brought to the players by increased speed of recovery from fatigue after games as well as quicker recovery from player tissue damage. By having our own cryotherapy system, CryoAction provides us with a piece of technology allowing us to get our first team training together as a squad.
