The Hurricanes have announced a partnership with wearable vibration therapy pioneers Myovolt to assist the Hurricanes with preparation and recovery during the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific season.
The high-performance technology has been developed over the past 20 years by a team of innovative experts with global experience creating garment integrated electronics, working with some of the largest global brands including Adidas, Apple, Levis, Decathlon, Nike, Burton, O’Neill, BMW and NASA.
In 2012 they created the World’s first performance enhancing electronic garments for elite athletes. Developed for Adidas, this technology was specifically designed to enhance off-the-mark muscle power performance for explosive sports such as track cycling and athletics.
Built on science and cutting-edge technology - and endorsed by a growing number of Medtech universities and organisations - the wearable technology uses Focal Vibration to massage the tissues promoting circulation and lymphatic drainage, removing lactic acid or metabolic waste, causing faster recovery and easier body movement.
Hurricanes Head Physiotherapist, LeeVan Santos, welcomes the exciting technology into the Hurricanes environment.
“For us, the key is consistency, keeping the players healthy and on the park has a big impact on performance and we’re always looking at new ways of training smarter.”
For the Hurricanes, Myovolt provides an innovative solution for their athletes, knowing they can warm the muscles up pre-training or recover effectively and safely in any environment, whether that’s in a hotel room or on the bus.
Myovolt Co-Founder Steve Leftly is equally excited about the partnership with the Hurricanes.
“We’re stoked to be partnering with the Hurricanes this season. We love working closely with elite players, team performance experts and physios to enhance rehab and recovery. And with this year’s unique travel and movement restrictions, Myovolt will provide the team with physio-level recovery anywhere, anytime.”
Over the last ten years, enhancing human performance and recovery through wearable technology has been the driving force behind the extensive R&D effort that led to Myovolt, its invention, validation, and commercialisation.
Central to this was the goal to create a wearable treatment product that could enhance sports performance for everyone, not just elite athletes. Myovolt is soft, comfortable, and easy to use delivering a specific range of vibration frequencies to massage and stretch muscle fibres and stimulate nerves. Its clinically proven to increase blood flow, reduce delayed onset muscle soreness and increase flexibility.
Myovolt will be used in all areas of the Hurricanes training including pre-game routines as well as recovery and rehab sessions.
