F1 driver Kimi Räikkönen, also known as the ”Iceman” has started co-operation with the CTN Group (www.ctn.fi). CTN is a company specialising in recovery equipment using super cold temperatures, also called Cryotherapy. The technology is developed and manufactured in Finland by the local group subsidiary, and their cutting edge equipment offers help in recovery, stress reduction, improved quality of sleep and pain relief. The CTN Group is a global pioneer in high-end cold therapy equipment, with products exported to more than 35 countries. Latest patented innovations enable localised cold therapy treatments without liquefied gasses, using only standard electricity. The company launched earlier this year the first electriconly X°Cryo™ device, which makes cryotherapy more affordable and accessible to a much wider clientele than before. This treatment traditionally used mainly by top athletes has now become a feasible option for all of us.
Founded in 2013, CTN Group, a developer and manufacturer of high end cold therapy based
recovery equipment, has now become the technology leader in its field. The various health benefits of cryotherapy were discovered in Japan already in the 1970s, where cold therapy was initially used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and pain relief caused by joint inflammations. Subsequently, whole body cryotherapy (WBCT) became internationally adopted method to accelerate the recovery and improve the performance of top athletes. Formula 1 driver Kimi Räikkönen is the latest
addition to the number of international sports stars to regularly use CTN’s cold recovery equipment. CTN’s full range of cryotherapy equipment has been installed in Kimi’s home in Switzerland and it has become an integral part of his personal fitness program.
“Many international sports and entertainment mega-stars have already discovered the benefits of cold therapy, but with the Iceman, Kimi Räikkönen, we found a perfect match and great global ambassador for our brand. Despite the well funded large and professional teams behind them, Formula 1 is a very demanding sport for the driver. It requires both physical and mental strength and undivided and continuous focus. As soon as we heard that Kimi had found the benefits of cold therapy, it was a very natural and mutually beneficial decision to start working together with him and to provide him the best available equipment to optimise his performance”, says Mr. Mare Oravainen, Chief Sales officer of the CTN Group.
