A big challenge for racquet sports and throwing sports is how to minimise the risk of arm injuries such as pitcher's elbow, tennis elbow and golfer's elbow.
The CryoSpa Mini is a portable 'ice bath', which has been designed for lower arm therapy. With a compact design it is easy to operate and ideal for treatment at tournaments, at away matches or at home.
It includes a built-in chiller with digital temperature controller enabling to chill the water as low as 5C. Combined with massage jets it provides intense chilling and accelerated recovery for the lower arm, which makes it ideal for throwing and racquet sports.
It is also suitable for athletes in a wheelchair.
Request Information on the CryoSpa Mini
In April 2016, while installing a CryoSpa Sport for the Toronto Blue Jays the conversation with the High Performance Director turned to pitcher’s and the risk to their throwing careers due to pitcher’s elbow. Hence the idea for the CryoSpa Mini was born.
By June the product had been developed and was installed at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for the Wimbledon Championships and was duly demonstrated to the Blue Jays High Performance Director, Clive Brewer, who had made his annual pilgrimage to Wimbledon.
By September a US specification product had been produced and installed at the Blue Jays Spring Training facility in Florida and it was not long after that a second unit was ordered.
