Lee Briers in shock Swinton call - Manchester Evening News (1st May 2013)
Lee Briers (Warrington Wolves) discusses his experience of using BOC’s Mobile Cryotherapy Chamber at the UK launch event in May. Comparing the experience to an ice bath, Briers says “The only thing that’s the same is that they are both cold. Other than that they’re about as similar as squash and snooker… That’s [Cryotherapy] dry and ice baths are wet. They’re better all round and I hope these will take over now”.
BOC in world’s first in cryotherapy sector - Gasworld (1st May 2013)BOC is leading the way in Mobile Whole Body Cryotherapy. Reported physical benefits include significant reductions in rheumatic, muscle and joint pain and reduced inflammation, as well as improved sleep and higher energy levels. Wider physiological effects can induce beneficial chemical reactions in the blood to speed up recovery after intense exercise.
The Effect of Three Different (-135°C) Whole Body Cryotherapy Exposure Durations on Elite Rugby League Players (2014) - conducted by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in partnership with BOC
To explore whether the length of WBC exposure induces differential changes in inflammatory markers, tissue oxygenation, skin and core temperature, thermal sensation and comfort. This study was a randomised cross over design with participants acting as their own control. Fourteen male professional first team super league rugby players were exposed to 1, 2, and 3 minutes of WBC at −135°C. Testing took place the day after a competitive league fixture, each exposure separated by seven days.
Time-Course of Changes in Inflammatory Response after Whole-Body Cryotherapy Multi Exposures following Severe Exercise (2011) - Journal of Human Sport and Exercise
Study from the National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance (INSEP), Paris, France. Nine well-trained runners performed 3 repetitions of a simulated trail run. All participants were tested immediately (1 hour after exercise), post 24 hours, and post 48 hours after exercise, using three different recovery modalities - Whole Body Cryotherapy, Infrared therapy and passive rest in a random order over three separate weeks.
Maximal muscle strength and perceived sensations were recovered after the first WBC session (post 1 h), while recovery took 24 h with FIR, and was not attained at all through the PAS recovery modality.
Study from the National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance (INSEP), Paris, France. The purpose of this study was to test the efficacy of whole body cryotherapy (WBC), far infrared (FIR) or passive (PAS) modalities in hastening muscular recovery within the 48 hours after a simulated trail running race. In 3 non-adjoining weeks, 9 well-trained runners performed 3 repetitions of a simulated trail run on a motorized treadmill, designed to induce muscle damage. Immediately (post), post 24 h, and post 48 h after exercise, all participants tested three different recovery modalities (WBC, FIR, PAS) in a random order over the three separate weeks.
