LONDON, 30th June 2022 – Hytro, the first Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) wearable designed specifically to improve sports performance, has announced a partnership with Newcastle Falcons and Newcastle Thunder rugby teams ahead of the 2022-23 season.
BFR is scientifically proven to significantly accelerate recovery and improve muscle development and endurance – perfect for elite rugby professionals. As part of the deal, Hytro is set to provide their unique BFR wearables to the men’s first teams in an effort to assist players in pushing the boundaries of their own performance.
Dr Warren Bradley, Founder and Head of Elite Performance at Hytro commented: “Newcastle is a proud city of rich rugby history – known for producing exceptional athletes. At Hytro, we believe that BFR is the most effective coaching tool in S&C for maximising athletic potential. Having worked with Falcons and Thunder to understand the impact opportunities of Hytro, we look forward to supporting the players with their recovery and performance using our wearable BFR tech.”
Kevin McShane, Head of Athletic Performance at Newcastle Falcons, said: “The partnership with Hytro is an exciting opportunity to have. They have produced a great product based on a solid foundation of research that will allow us to maximise our recovery, especially with the travel demands we face through the season.”
Andrew Woolfenden, Head of Strength and Conditioning at Newcastle Thunder, added: “We’re looking forward to working with Hytro and incorporating BFR products into our training and recovery sessions. The recently introduced Hytro BFR Recovery Shorts have been well received by our players.”
The revolutionary BFR company helps to facilitate elite sport clubs by providing their simple and practical solution with Active and Passive BFR. Hytro is currently being used by teams including St Helens RLC, Leeds Rhinos, Catalan Dragons, Bath Rugby, Newcastle Falcons, Newcastle Thunder, Aston Villa FC, Rangers FC, Blackburn Rovers FC, Everton FC, UFC Performance Institute and Alpine Academy.
Dr Warren Bradley, the founder of Hytro, joined Max Solomon of the Science for Sport Podcast to discuss the use of Blood Flow Restriction in elite sport. Dr Warren talks all about BFR, the science behind it and more.
After sustaining a back injury, professional rugby league player Charlie Willett was ruled out of the 2020/21 season. This year she has had to learn how to shift her mindset and practices to recover effectively with BFR and perform at her best.
