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 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.”
