A Cryotherapy chamber is used to relieve muscle pain, sprains and swelling after tissue damage. The temperature inside the chamber can be lowered to a -180°C depending on the type of injury. There is a VO2 Max that can measure the maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilise during intense exercise. The High Performance Centre, the first of its kind in the state, for professional sportspersons at JRD Tata Sports Complex is complete with psychologists, nutritionists and high-tech equipment.
“This is a very good way to cool down your body after an intense workout or a high intensity training session. It is great to see Jamshedpur having such awesome facilities for us athletes,” said Keegan Pereira.
The squad also looked at the facilities inside the stadium and was thrilled.
