Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club

Testing volunteers wanted ...

Manchester Metropolitan Universite (MMU) is running a research project testing a new cryotherapy device in February and March and is looking for volunteers to take part. We have been asked to let Macclesfield Harriers members know about this.

The testing requires a single visit of either ½ hour or 1 hour depending on how much time you can spare.

The attached documents give more information. Please be aware that the study is not to see whether there are therapeutic effects from the device, it is purely to see whether the device cools the area.

Please see the documents attached for more information.
