Hyperice, known for its presence in the professional sports and fitness industries, announced its first-ever health technology aviation partnership with JetSuite, designed to enhance pilot wellness and performance.
The partnership gives JetSuite pilots access to Hyperice’s recovery and mobility devices which help to relax and loosen muscles, increase circulation and enhance the range of motion and flexibility.
Our partnership with Hyperice was developed to increase the long-term wellness of our pilots through leading recovery and mobility devices that help offset the physical demands of flying. After all, they are our athletes in the sky.Stephanie Chung, president of JetSuite
In a press release, Hyperice said, “Pilots’ health and wellness can often be compromised due to an irregular diet, sleep pattern, and exercise schedule. Their daily regimen is imperative to ensure they stay healthy and perform at the safest level.”
It says JetSuite will be “the first-ever aviation company to implement a comprehensive recovery and mobility health tech wellness program to promote the wellness and career longevity of its pilots.”
JetSuite plans to further advance the initiative and offer similar health tech solutions for both JetSuite passengers and non-pilot employees.
In an effort to create the most optimal working environment for pilots, Hyperice will be providing the following:
· Install of a Wellness Pod – a “wellness room” concept established for warm-up, rehabilitation, and recovery with easy access to leading tools – at JetSuite headquarters
· Hold collaborative movement and recovery education workshops
· Create the first-ever 30-minute “pilot specific” technology-based warm-up, recovery and body maintenance protocol for travel
“At JetSuite, we’re constantly thinking of new ways to ensure we give our pilots the tools to live a happy, healthy life,” said Stephanie Chung, president of JetSuite.
She added, “Our partnership with Hyperice was developed to increase the long-term wellness of our pilots through leading recovery and mobility devices that help offset the physical demands of flying. After all, they are our athletes in the sky.”
Hyperice is well-known for developing industry-leading performance technology devices for professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
“After seeing airlines integrate health and wellness offerings to passengers, we made it our mission to educate the aviation industry on the importance of providing similar offerings to pilots,” said Jim Huether, CEO of Hyperice.
He added, “Like the passengers, pilots are having to sit upright for long periods of time – this can generate muscle strains in the neck and back and reduce blood circulation.”
The CEO noted, “This partnership is aimed at helping pilots take care of their bodies, so they can feel and perform their best. Hyperice is thrilled to be working with JetSuite on this forward-thinking initiative, and we hope to create an industry-wide movement to help pilots all over the world move better.”
Hyperice is an Inc. 500 global recovery and movement enhancement technology company, specializing in portable high-performance sports medicine and orthopedic devices that provide preventative treatment, accelerate injury recovery, and enhance muscle and joint performance.
Hyperice’s technology is being used by the world’s most elite athletes in professional and collegiate training rooms and in rehabilitation facilities globally, the company said.
JetSuite recently said it plans to focus on the Embraer Phenom 300 for its JetSuite jet card program. Chung says the company is also getting ready to add a new aircraft type to its fleet. In addition to the Phenom 300s, it also flies Phenom 100s.
Its SuiteKey jet card starts at $100,000 and also allows members to access luxury travel advisory Embark Beyond. Last week JetSuite rolled out a VVIP experience in conjunction with Super LIV in Miami next February.
