Mueller Sports Medicine has acquired worldwide rights to the RecoveryTub inflatable ice tubs product line from RP-X/UK Sports Products Ltd and now offers them as a portable solution for cold water baths for all types of athletes.
The company is rolling out two sizes – The Solo Tub (59″ x 33.4″ x 17.7″) and the Team Tub (61″ Diameter x 27.5″ Deep). The Solo Tub holds 48 gallons of water. The Team Tub can hold larger athletes and up to 3-4 people. It holds approximately 106 gallons of water.
In addition to serving as solutions for on-the-road events, the tubs can help expand training room facilities when social distancing is necessary, the company notes in a media release.
Portable and Flexible
Designed with portability in mind, they feature a rechargeable air pump (with adapters) for quick and easy inflation and a mesh carry case. The Solo Tub is only 11 pounds, while the Team Tub is 18 pounds.
They can hold cold water for post-workout and post-game icedowns. They can also serve as additional cooldown stations for major events such as marathons, 5Ks or summer camp practices where heat stroke is a factor and a cooling bath may be necessary to quickly lower body temperatures.
“Instead of costly tubs that are stationary, RecoveryTub inflatable ice tub provides the flexibility of being able to be easily transported and simple to set up. With tighter athletic department and athletic training budgets — and increased expectations for athlete care – these tubs can be a valuable tool.”
— John Cayer, President of Mueller Sports Medicine
The RecoveryTub inflatable ice tub is also easy to store for road trips or in athletic training rooms where space is a premium, the release continues.
“It can turn any outdoor area into a portable training room. It can also provide a way to space out ice baths to avoid social distancing issues, especially when relying on another team’s equipment or when multiple teams have access to athletic training facilities.”
