PROTEC Recovery’s mission is to make recovery and wellness technology accessible to the modern athlete. This season, using their state-of-the-art devices and technology – Giants’ players will have access to high-spec compression recovery boots, percussion guns and vibration products which will be readily available on-site for use pre/post game and practice to help relieve tension, release sore muscles, and prime player’s physical and mental wellbeing to meet the demands of the high intensity nature of the sport.
Speaking of the new partnership, Adam Keefe, Belfast Giants’ head coach said: “PROTEC Recovery’s extensive range of technologies will allow us to prepare and increase the readiness of our players throughout the year. It’s an intense season, especially with the additional Champions Hockey League games, so this partnership comes at the right time for the Giants to ensure the guys are as ready and recovered as they can be.”
Steve Keys, head of strength and conditioning with the Belfast Giants said, “With an EIHL season consisting of back-to-back games, participating in strength and conditioning programmes, and travelling frequently across the UK, the toll on player’s bodies can be substantial.
“For this reason, it’s viral that recovery ranks highly on our agenda, and with our arsenal of PROTEC devices, we can start this process immediately both at home on the road. We welcome this partnership and look forward to working with them to achieve our season’s aims.”
PROTEC Recovery founder, Barry Grant said: “The Belfast Giants are an iconic name within European ice hockey, and we are hugely proud to partner with them. They have a passionate fan base and high expectations not only of themselves, but also their partners.
"We are proud to team up with the Giants to help bring their recovery and wellness to a new level and enhance the performance of their athletes so that they can build on a hugely successful 2021/22 season in which the Giants were crowned Elite League and Challenge Cup champions.”
Earlier this week, PROTEC launched a brand-new product to market, PROBOOTS. This is a dynamic compression system that imitates the body’s natural circulatory system to transport oxygenated blood from the heart to the limbs and extremities and help clear stagnant metabolic waste.
