In a first-of-its-kind partnership for a Premiership Rugby team, we are delighted to announce MyoMaster will be the official recovery partner for current champions, Harlequins.
“MyoMaster was born in the Harlequins changing room.” said Joe Gray, MyoMaster co-founder and Harlequins hooker. “The first MyoMaster prototype was developed with input from my fellow teammates, it was tried, tested, and developed by professional rugby players.”
That first prototype, the MyoBlaster, was a Black & Decker with a stool leg welded to the end – 3 years and many iterations later, it’s successor the MyoPro will be used by both the Mens and Womens teams at Harlequins as they chase more titles domestically and in Europe.
Mike Lancaster, Head of Medical Services at Harlequins, said: “MyoMaster’s products have become a mainstay in our medical team’s tools for aiding player recovery over the last few years.
“Whether treating injury or ensuring our players are physically prepared to go back out on the pitch again week-to-week, optimum recovery is key to ensuring that our athletes are ready to perform as elite sportspeople every time they step out onto the field.”
One of the key factors in Harlequins’ success as the reigning Gallagher Premiership champions has been the Club’s relentless commitment to optimum performance through player load and recovery management, with MyoMaster technology a key tool in the medical team’s efforts in player recovery and rehabilitation.
The MyoMaster percussive, compression, occlusion and EMS products are used for warm-up, injury prevention and maximising performance and will be used pre and post-training, and pitch-side during games.
Danny Care, Harlequins player, England international said: “MyoMaster really understand what recovery is, the needs of players and the products are brilliant. I have watched Joe create them, the attention to detail and the way they have built a recovery brand which delivers to the genuine needs of athletes is second to none.
“At 35, looking after my body is paramount. With the help of MyoMaster I have been able to take my recovery to a new level which not only feeds into my physical performance on the pitch but also plays a big part in injury prevention and directly enhances the longevity of my professional career.”
