THE SPORT SCIENCE CENTER

In 2020 Alabama opened its new Sports Science Center, located at the Mal M. Moore Athletic Facility: at 7,000-square feet, the center performs triple-duty as a treatment, recovery, and rehabilitation facility. UA’s 600+ student-athletes  have access to advanced treatment services and technology with spaces dedicated to cryotherapy, chiropractic, stretch, massage, relaxation, recovery, and mental health services; these upgrades will provide them with the best facilities for medical care and help Alabama Athletics continue attracting the nation’s best recruits.

ZEROBODY: THE ALLY IN RECOVERY

The Crimson Tide has chosen Zerobody and added multiple dry float stations to the Sport Center, which allows multiple athletes to utilize them at one time.

This may be the part of our recovery area in the Sports Science Center that I’m the most excited about.” athletic trainer Jeff Allen said. “This is completely new technology. I think we’re the only team in the country that has it, so we’re really excited to start using sensory deprivation beds.”

Allen said having multiple Zerobody stations will allow him and his training staff to serve “all of our student-athletes across all sports. It’s going to be a fantastic situation for us.”

Man, it feels amazing! As far as training goes, it takes pressure off my back. It’s really good for recovery, in my opinion. I like to come in here after workouts and take a couple minutes and relax. These relieve a lot of strain and pressure off my back. I’m really grateful that we have these.

Associate Athletics Director, Sports Medicine

We were incredibly strategic with how we planned what we wanted to go into our Sports Science Center when it comes to recovery,” Allen said. “We wanted things that no doubt would have physiological benefits for our athletes, something that we knew would help them. It would have been really easy, I think, for us just to build a room full of nap beds or nap rooms, and that would have been OK. But we wanted to try to take it a step above and do something unique, and I think we’ve done that. Really excited about the opportunity to use Zerobody.
