Applied Research study conducted by Bristol Bears’ Head of Medicine Adam Roberts and research student Nathan Jones to assess the benefits of post-match Recovery BFR.
15 Elite Professional Rugby Union Players from Bristol Bears Rugby Club
Recovery BFR was applied passively <2hrs post-match
Recovery BFR intervention was tested over 7 competitive games, following 3 games of baseline data collection
Protocol included maximal Hytro occlusion for 3×5 mins, with 3 minutes reperfusion between sets (Takarada et al., 2000)
Post-match Recovery BFR significantly impacted the players’ recovery scores, including reductions in fatigue, joint pain, and muscle soreness.
Recovery was also notably improved on Gameday +2 when back at the club.
Recovery BFR with Hytro improved the perceptual recovery of elite athletes both immediately and 48-Hours Post-Game
Athletes reported feeling 82% less fatigued and 75% less sore immediately post game vs baseline
Athletes reported back to training on GD+2 feeling 24% less fatigued and 18% less sore vs baseline
Hytro provides a simple, effective, and practical recovery tool for squads of athletes (Neal et al., 2023)
