Prolonged cooling with phase change material enhances recovery and does not affect the subsequent repeated bout effect following exercise
Purpose The aim of this investigation was twofold: (1) to examine the effect of prolonged phase change material (PCM) cooling following eccentric exercise of the quadriceps on indices of muscle damage, and (2) to elucidate ...
Prolonging the duration of cooling does not enhance recovery following a marathon
Runners commonly utilize cryotherapy as part of their recovery strategy. Cryotherapy has been ineffective in mitigating signs and symptoms of muscle damage following marathon running and is limited by its duration of ...
Exploring the efficacy of a safe cryotherapy alternative: physiological temperature changes from cold-water immersion versus prolonged cooling of phase-change material
(Human Kinetics, 2019)
Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness between cold-water immersion (CWI) and phase-change-material (PCM) cooling on intramuscular, core, and skin-temperature and cardiovascular responses. Methods: In a randomized, crossover ...
The effect of varying degrees of compression from elastic vs plastic wrap on quadriceps intramuscular temperature during wetted ice application
The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the effectiveness of wetted ice bag, applied with high compression elastic wrap or held in place with low compression plastic wrap, on reducing vastus lateralis intramuscular ...
Cryotherapy reinvented: application of phase change material for recovery in elite soccer
(Human kinetics, 2018)
Purpose: To examine whether donning lower-body garments fitted with cooled phase change material (PCM) would enhance recovery after a soccer match. Methods: In a randomized, crossover design, 11 elite soccer players from ...
