Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Cryotherapy Labs Limited (Cryolabs) contracted the University of Portsmouth to investigate the effects of regular Whole-Body Cryotherapy (WBC) use on plasma RBM3, cortisol, testosterone, and cardiovascular activity. Following ethical approval, this research was undertaken at rest in a thermoneutral laboratory in two phases. First, a group of regular WBC users (i.e. Cryolabs clients) attended the Extreme Environments Lab at the University of Portsmouth (protocol detailed in Annex A) and second, a matched control group, accounting for sex, age, mass, height and body composition and who were not regularly exposed to cold environments, were recruited. The results are provided herein.
