AFC Bournemouth Visit & Partnership Renewal

This week we had a visit from AFC Bournemouth. As their Official Performance & Rehabilitation Partner, our AECC interns support their first team, development squad and youth team. With the partnership now in its 4th year, the state-of-the-art equipment and specialist facilities the AECC offers ensures the Cherries are in safe hands. In particular, the AECC’s High Performance Centre provides bespoke testing, assessment and detailed analysis capability for the players. Professional advice as well as personalised training programmes can then be given to ensure both effective rehabilitation and performance optimisation.

One such specialist piece of equipment available is the Primus machine, a dynamometer which is typically used to improve strength and control through a variety of movements specific to the individual and their sporting requirements. Used to evaluate joints, muscles and neural control, its primarily used for lower limb testing and rehabilitation. Whilst they were here, first team midfielder Dan Gosling carried out a neuromuscular test on the Primus machine in the High Performance Centre.
