The Elite Sports Performance Expo 2016 brings the greatest technology, training concepts, nutrition, and equipment in the world of professional sport to one venue over two electric days.
The show stands as Europe’s most comprehensive platform for the technology that’s changing the game, and amongst the most exciting innovations showcased at this June’s event is whole body cryotherapy (WBC), the device used by many Premier League football clubs, including recently-crowned champions Leicester City.
Colder than any natural place on earth, the WBC’s temperature can plummet to as low as -135°C, and is proven to accelerate regeneration after intense physical activity and enhance performance levels.
Watford FC’s Senior Sports Scientist Ben Dixon will be speaking exclusively about WBC, and how it has helped their players train harder, recover faster, and ultimately perform better.
Exhibitors of WBC include CryoAction, official providers of WBC chambers to Leicester City; Cryopod, who have treated elite athletes from sides such as the New Zealand All Blacks; and CryoNiq, who work with several NBA sides.
Our Future Gym Arena enables you to see, touch, and try out the cutting edge products and training methods being used by today’s elite athletes and teams. You will find equipment solutions from the very best UK manufacturers such as Absolute Performance, who were recently announced as being official suppliers to Team GB’s training camps in Rio, and A Unit, who developed Leicester City’s lower lib strength and conditioning equipment.
The Arena is open throughout the show, so you can come along and try out the equipment for yourself to gain a taste of what will be filling gym floors near you in the future.
ESP Expo has a strong focus on the video software that’s breaking new ground in the way performance data is collected and action is analysed. This year sees a host of the leaders in sports analysis software exhibiting their products and solutions and providing a glimpse into the future of sports technology. Suppliers include SportsTec, Qualisys, Nacsport, ChyronHego, and Videobserver.
The supplements industry – which is projected to be worth around £527 million in the UK come 2019 – is also extensively covered. You can find some of the leading suppliers behind the nutrition fuelling elite athletes, such as Scitec Direct, Functional Sports Nutrition, and JBC.
You can also find suppliers offering a wealth of information, education, and demonstrations in other ground-breaking technologies and areas of study, including vibration therapy, far infrared saunas, biomechanics, and moveable swimming pools.
Both the Elite Sports Rehabilitation Expo and COPA Practice Growth, running alongside ESP Expo, will provide extensive insight into platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, the treatment method that’s gaining increasing attention, particularly after its use by high profile athletes such as NBA superstar Kobe Bryant.
Dr Philippe Adam, consultant for musculoskeletal pathology and sport medicine at Regen Lab and experienced medical practitioner of PRP treatment will talk about the alternative therapy, and Dr Rick Seah, consultant in sport & exercise medicine at the Institute of Sport, Exercise & Health, will speak about the various injection options available for treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
