Top athletes are using and endorsing the firefly™ device for sports recovery.
We have been incorporating the firefly™ device as part of our post competition recovery strategy for a few number of seasons. The firefly™ provides us with a recovery tool that is easy to apply and wear whilst it provides our players with a tool that gives them the possibility to recover quicker after games. For us this is considered crucial, especially in periods of congested fixtures. The simplicity of the device offers a solution that allows players to wear them during travel after games, thus providing optimal acute recovery. We always try and provide our players with strategies that allow them to be ready to perform at an optimal level and we consider the firefly™ to be part of this.
With rugby league accommodating such a demanding season, it is crucial at Hull FC we optimise the way our players recover. Introducing the firefly™ device has been significantly beneficial to us. With the firefly™ being portable, it allows our players to wear it any time of the day, whether it’s at training, during extended travel or even outside of the training environment. The firefly™ is now incorporated into our recovery process, contributing towards gaining that competitive advantage we all seek to achieve.
Over the last 4 years firefly™ devices have become an important part of our athletes recovery and travel strategies. The nature of track and field competition means that in order to be successful athletes are required to repeatedly operate at their physical best over the course of 2-3 days, and therefore effective recovery interventions are key. We have found fireflyTM devices to play an important role in helping us restore muscle performance in a fast and effective manner."
I am so happy to have the firefly™ as part of my preparation for the Olympics. The firefly™ is small, easy to use and perfectly suits my recovery strategy! I am really pleased to see improvements with using the firefly™."
With our athletes competing around the world at major championships, often over 2-3 days, optimising performance requires optimised recovery. The firefly™ plays an integral part in our individualised recovery plans, helping to reduce muscle soreness and increase muscle performance. I would highly recommend incorporating these lightweight and simple to use devices into any elite athlete’s travel and recovery strategies."
When playing international sport it is the small margins that get you over the line. So whatever I can do to give myself the best possible chance of performing to my maximum ability, I will do it. I believe recovery is the most important aspect of being able to perform to the max, week after week. Stretching properly and using the firefly™ during competition or high training load, helped when performing the next day. My legs would often feel fresh and ready to compete at the highest level."
“I found the firefly™ device to be beneficial in aiding recovery after boxing sessions, post altitude training and gym based work during rehabilitation from a Pars fracture. The firefly™ device became part of my daily recovery routine pre and post training, which also includes recovery shakes, compression and a nutritious food plan. My physiotherapist Kevin Powell introduced the firefly™ device to me following his work with Watford Football Club’s Sport Scientist, Ben Dixon. I would recommend adding the firefly™ device to other boxers and athletes recovery protocols.”"
Whether after a heavy training or a match, firefly™ is brilliant in aiding my muscle recovery. It helps me recover quickly when I have a short turn around between Saturday and Tuesday matches. It’s comfortable to wear and easy to turn on and off when I need it."
Having spent the last four years of my rowing career as part of the national team, I’ve learnt that the smallest of variables can produce the most important and sometimes pivotal effects on performance. International competitions rely on our ability to perform in up to four 2km maximal effort races in just as many days. While our training program is built to prepare us for this strain, making the most of recovery is hugely important between races. Part of my recovery strategy is using firefly™ devices. Promoting extra blood flow, it keeps my legs from feeling numb or weak when I need them to be at their best over and over again."
firefly™ is a revolutionary recovery technique, which I find extremely beneficial in training and competition. I can always rely on firefly™ to speed up my recovery."

During our recent Test match vs New Zealand which took place in Denver, USA, our primary concern was ensuring our players got there and back in optimum condition. The travel had the potential to cause issues to our preparation though with the help of firefly™ recovery devices we were able to ensure that we arrived ready to train. Recovery is an important consideration to any high performance team and any device that can provide a physiological benefit to the players is essential to the programme. Using firefly™ recovery devices had a positive impact on how our players performed during the week and enabled them to return to their clubs in good health."
