The Kansas City Chiefs will become the NFL’s first team to take advantage of technology provided by the league’s official recovery partner, Hyperice, to help aid player gametime recovery with installations in locker rooms and training rooms.
Hyperice, a specialist in recovery technology using percussion, vibration, dynamic air compression and thermal technology, announced a multi-year partnership with the Kansas City Chiefs. In November 2020, Hyperice became the Official Recovery Technology Partner of the NFL, and the Super Bowl LIV Championship team will expand upon the NFL’s mission to optimize player performance by integrating Hyperice technologies into the Chiefs program.
To kick off this partnership, players will now have access to the award-winning Hypervolt Plus for gametime recovery via HyperTank carts, in addition to custom Hyperice installations throughout the training and locker rooms for players and staff.
The Chiefs and Hyperice see opportunities to educate more people on technologies used by the pros and inspire them to improve their own mobility and overall wellness. Fans will also gain behind the scenes access into players’ training routines including preparation for game day, and Hyperice will be integrated into the Chiefs’ team-themed fitness center, Chiefs Fit. Chiefs Fit is a 37,000 square foot state-of-the-art health, wellness and recovery facility that will open in Spring 2021 at Regency Park Shopping Center in Overland Park, Kansas.
“With the NFL and individually with Patrick Mahomes we look to champion the importance of recovery technology for Chiefs players and fans alike,” said Jim Huether, CEO of Hyperice. “We now have the opportunity to positively affect players’ career longevity, while introducing the Chiefs’ fanbase to tools and technologies that will help them move better.”
Chiefs president Mark Donovan said: “Vice President of Sports Medicine and Performance Rick Burkholder and his team have long relied on the technology and tools provided by Hyperice to help our players prepare for – and endure – the rigors of a long football season. In addition to welcoming Hyperice to our stadium and our practice facility, we’re thrilled to be bringing Hyperice technology and equipment to Chiefs Fit.”
