As part of a major refurbishment of their London Colney training centre and in preparation for the 2017-8 Premier League season, Arsenal FC has invested in a CryoAction integrated cryotherapy chamber for use by their players as key component of the team’s recovery and rehabilitation protocols.

The whole body cryotherapy system was designed and installed by CryoAction, the market leaders, whose existing clients include other Premier League clubs such as Everton, Leicester City, Bournemouth, Watford & Premiership new boys, Huddersfield FC.

CryoAction co-founder, Ian Saunders commented ”We were delighted to have been selected from a number of companies offering differing solutions by such a prestigious club as Arsenal FC. The club has moved forward from using an interim mobile cryotherapy solution to a fully integrated chamber which emphasises the growing importance of whole body cryotherapy as a recovery modality for Premier League teams.”

The installation was completed in the pre-season with players making full use of their new cryotherapy chamber as part of their preparation for the new Premier League season. Accommodating up to 8 players in a single session, the new unit offers treatments at temperatures as low as -160°C for durations of between 3 and 5 minutes.

The cryotherapy treatments aim to reduce the effects of fatigue resulting from the intensity of the Premier League season. In addition, offering the ability to reduce the impact of soft tissue injuries, bringing pain relief, enhancing sleep recovery and improving overall player well-being, the new cryotherapy chamber complements the advanced techniques now available to Arsenal FC players.

ARSENAL FC new cryotherapy chamber from CryoAction‘The installation at Arsenal went very smoothly and working in collaboration with our partners BOC & Thames Cryogenics, we have created one of the largest cryotherapy chambers installed in the UK.” said David Morris, CryoAction co-founder. He added,” We look forward to working with the medical and sports science teams at Arsenal FC to introduce a best practice regimen around whole body cryotherapy as a key element in their recovery protocols”.

Premier League new boys, Huddersfield Town have become the latest club to install a cryotherapy unit from industry leaders, CryoAction. In the run up to the club’s inaugural season in the top flight, the Terriers have invested in the revolutionary technology to help their players meet the physical challenges of the most competitive league in the world.

The 4 person CryoAction cryotherapy unit has been installed at Huddersfield Town’s training ground and is now in regular use by the first team and staff. The experience of enduring temperatures as low as -160°C is a new one for many of the players but they have quickly embraced the treatment, and cryotherapy has been readily integrated as part of their recovery protocols.

CryoAction co-founder, Ian Saunders commented “We are delighted to be working with Huddersfield Town in their first season in the Premier League. We hope that the installation of our cryotherapy chamber and the adoption of the treatment used by so many of our other elite clients in football will help the players stay healthy and recover faster from the physical demands of the modern game.”

Huddersfield Town’s Head of Performance Services, Dr. John Iga, said of the installation “Our playing style and training regime are well documented and necessitate that we have the most comprehensive approaches to player recovery possible, and cryotherapy forms an important part of our strategy

John added, “Having made the decision to invest in cryotherapy, we contacted CryoAction due to their track record and reputation within football and have been delighted how quickly they were able to install a 4 person system in time for the start of pre-season training. Our staff have now been fully trained to operate the cryochamber, and already the feedback from the players has been extremely positive.”
