Project Brännkyrka

Storstockholms brandförsvar Brännkyrka 20130424Project Brännkyrka together with the Stockholm Fire Brigade has started! Earlier studies (1, 2) with firemen have shown that eccentric training is effective in counteracting patellar tendinopathy.

In ‘Project Brännkyrka” we want to enable eccentric training in the firemen’s regular training at their fire station in Brännkyrka (known from the Swedish reality show on TV4, “112 – på liv och död“). The stations 28 firemen will now work out with the kBox regularly for 12 weeks.

The aims of the study is to lower frequency of patellar pain, attenuate training quality, intensity and volume and increase strength in hip and leg extensors. Contact us for a more thorough description of the study. So far the response have been very positive and we are very glad to be able to work together with Brännkyrka fire station in this project.
