FLUSHING, N.Y., April 27, 2021 – The New York Mets today announced that they have selected Therabody™, the innovator in tech wellness and the creators of percussive therapy, as an official recovery and wellness technology partner. The Mets will be integrating Therabody’s percussive massage therapy device Theragun®, pneumatic compression device RecoveryAir, and its industry-leading research and education into the team’s programming to enhance overall player and team performance.
“Therabody products have been a welcome addition to our player’s preparation and recovery routines,” says Jim Cavallini, Mets Director of Performance and Sports Science. “The quality of the products as well as their range of applications have made for a quick integration into our daily practices.”
Committed to innovation, technology, and research and development, Therabody’s ecosystem of wellness solutions are trusted by professional athletes and sports teams worldwide. Through this partnership, Therabody will provide the Mets with effective training and recovery devices and protocols.
“I am thrilled to be partnering with the New York Mets,” explains Dr. Jason Wersland, Founder and Chief Wellness Officer of Therabody. “We are looking forward to supporting the Mets in ensuring that their players not only use the best-in-class training and recovery solutions that we develop, but that they also have access to the most innovative research and methodology to help them play their best every time they step onto the field.”
Therabody will build a custom section in the dugout for Mets players to use devices -- such as the Theragun PRO and Wave Roller -- during games and practices, and will provide custom carts of devices in the bullpen. Therabody recently announced the launch of RecoveryAir, its clinical pneumatic compression device, which will also be integrated into the team’s recovery routine. Additionally, Therabody will enroll the Mets’ players, coaches and medical experts in Therabody University, the company’s education division, on ways to effectively take care of themselves and optimize the benefits of Therabody’s devices and solutions.
