Waiariki teams up with the University of California Davis to research endurance sport recovery methods

Waiariki Institute of Technology

Most runners will agree that a massage following a race makes them feel better, but what they don’t know is whether that post-performance treatment translates to faster, if any, recovery and repair of the muscles.

Four Waiariki Institute of Technology staff members are working with an international team to try to determine just that after being approached by The University of California Davis to collaborate on and expand their research in this area.

The “2016 Ultra Running Research: Effect of massage and pneumatic compression on recovery in ultramarathon runners” project is being funded by Waiariki and directed by Dr Amanda Heapy (PhD), head of department for health and sport at Waiariki, alongside Dr Martin Hoffman (MD) of UC Davis.

The research team draws on expertise from Waiariki’s health and nursing team as well as the sport department.
