Saints begin new ‘clean air’ partnership with MedicAir

Northampton Saints have joined forces with healthy air experts MedicAir to tackle indoor air pollution at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens.

The British air purification company have signed a new clean air partnership with the men in Black, Green and Gold which aims to remove the ‘invisible threat’ from Saints’ training facilities and stadium to protect the health of the Club’s players and its staff.

Breathing dirty air has a huge implication for professional sportspeople, when key players can miss matches due to viruses or illness-related injuries.

Studies show that air purification can significantly improve athletic performance by increasing oxygen levels and reducing the number of pollutants inhaled by athletes. Air purification can also help reduce sickness amongst players and staff.

“Professional sport has an invisible threat,” said Dr. Matthew Perkins, Managing Director of MedicAir. “Mounting studies show there is a direct correlation between indoor air quality and the health and performance of elite sportspeople.

“Changing rooms in particular pose a problem, because they are notoriously difficult areas to maintain to a healthy and hygienic standard. These environments are busy places, lacking natural ventilation, usually full of players and staff.

“As such, airborne germs, viruses and bacteria can be emitted and inhaled, along with chemicals left in the air from cleaning materials and physiotherapy sprays.

“The fact that Northampton Saints are investing in MedicAir air purification technology shows how committed the Club is to the health and wellbeing of its players, as well as spectator satisfaction.”

“We are thrilled to be working with such a prestigious and forward-thinking Club.”

MedicAir supplies medical-grade air purifiers that combine hospital-grade air filtration, activated carbon filtration, and virus-killing UVC technologies in a simple unit that is plugged in and provides instant protection with no professional installation.

MedicAir is found in thousands of NHS hospitals, schools, care homes, and businesses throughout the UK, Europe and North America. Recently, the company has been awarded a year-long contract by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to deliver air purification in hospitals.

MedicAir has also worked with a number of professional sports teams and organisations around the world to improve air quality in training and competition environments.

“We are excited to partner with MedicAir to bring the latest air purification technology to Northampton Saints,” said Club Chief Executive, Mark Darbon.

“Not only will it benefit the performance of our players, but it will also create a healthier environment for all of our staff.”
