The CryoSpa Sport offers optimum ice bath therapy and has proven to be an integral part of recovery strategy for many professional sports clubs, accelerating athlete recovery, minimising fatigue and lowering the risk of injury.
Ideal for up to four athletes, it has 20+ jets and a unique patent protected design. The temperature of the CryoSpa can be controlled down to 1C, which enables you to set a temperature to accommodate the requirements of the athletes.
Tip for teams: the flexibility of the CET CryoSpa is particularly important if you have a diverse range of players with varying tolerances for cold! See the Team CryoSpa Sport for further information.
You can vary the therapy according to your requirements:
Four Treatment Modalities:
To the successful sports person, adequate recovery following intense training sessions is absolutely key to minimising fatigue, reducing the risk of injury and increasing performance.
Gregory Dupont of Lille FC/University of Lille examined1 common interventions and concluded that the main strategies for post-exercise recovery were:
The first three are lifestyle factors which are essential for the maintenance of health and are crucial to performance in elite and non-elite sport alike. Good sleep is generally considered to be a minimum of 8 hours undisturbed sleep.
The main intervention singled out for post-exercise by Gregory Dupont et al is cold water immersion. Other common interventions such as sports massage, light recovery, compression garments etc are considered to be supplementary.
For cold water immersion, many people would simply fill their bath tub with cold water and ice - something which is more labour intensive and costly than you might think.
For effective CWI, the number 1 choice should be the CET CryoSpa ice bath. Ideal for up to 4 athletes at a time, the CryoSpa Sport ice bath has a unique patent protected design2 and is now 'an integral recovery strategy3' for many professional sports clubs. Its flexibility means it can be used by a wide range of people with varying tolerances for cold.
