The establishment of a Cryogenic therapy chamber based at Torrent Valley Business Park, Donaghmore
Joint application by Paul Feeney and Martin Brannigan - Paul Feeney operates as a qualified Sports Injury Therapist and currently runs a health & fitness studio (Advanced Fitness) at Unit 1 Torrent Valley Business Park.
Cryogenics chambers were developed in Eastern Europe and use short exposures of extreme cold temperature and have become a recognised tool in advanced treatment of injury and rehabilitation after surgery i.e. post operative support. Traditionally, cryogenic treatment has been used to treat elite athletes; however, it is becoming increasingly more popular as a form of general injury management and rehabilitation. The project involved the design and provision of additional space in Torrent Valley Business Park, the purchase of a Cryogenic chamber, its installation and commissioning.
