New challenges in Cold Applications in Life Sciences
Whole-body cryotherapy is one mode of cold therapy, during which a subject is exposed to very low temperatures (so-called “extreme cold”) for a short time (2 to 4 minutes) in a specialised cold chamber. This method is used to induce physiological and psychological benefits.
 
Little known a few years ago, this therapy has recently generated significant interest. The researchers and clinicians working in this field have developed a small community. However, very little interaction exists among the community. Something needed to be done!
 
A new working group at the IIR
During the IIR Science and Technology meeting on June 15, 2017, a new IIR Working Group (WG) on “Whole-body cryotherapy or cryostimulation” was officially created. Set up on the initiative of Jacques Guilpart, Delegate of France and head of Section C, the members of this new WG had an online launch meeting on May 2, 2017.
