Wroclaw-based cryogenic devices manufacturer Kriosystem has signed up as a partner of this year’s edition of the World Games multi-sport event, which will take place in the Polish city.
As part of the agreement, the company will make a mobile cryochamber available for athletes during the event, and will also provide Kriosan equipment for localised treatment.
Cryotherapy is used to treat pain and uses freezing temperatures to deaden an irritated nerve.
Marcin Przychodny, president of the Wroclaw 2017 Organising Committee, said: “This new partner means that we can give the athletes a whole new quality of service, specially provided for the World Games. TWG 2017 includes around 3,500 athletes from over 110 countries. It is up to us what impression of Wroclaw they will leave with. We expect that having these additional services, which are not common at such popular events, will mean that these impressions will be the best.”
The World Games is an event organised by the International World Games Association. This year’s Games will take place from July 20-30.
