Frank Lampard partners with new Dubai fitness lab for athletes

This is exactly the kind of facility players today will really benefit from, especially when you consider the technology they have here can help to pinpoint potential issues before you even know about them
– Frank Lampard, former England and Chelsea player

Former England and Chelsea star Frank Lampard has partnered with a new health assessment centre in Dubai aimed at professional and former athletes.

The nanoM clinic, located at The Golden Mile Galleria on Palm Jumeirah and owned by the Emirates Healthcare Group, was developed in a bid to provide athletes with “a new standard of health and fitness assessment”.

The 17,000sq ft (5,182sq m) centre offers analysis of individuals’ health, fitness, body functionality and physical performance capabilities.

Lampard underwent testing at the centre to showcase the technologies in its Sports and Human Performance Laboratory, which include cardio-metabolic and muscle activation testing, 3D posture and motion analysis, functional agility assessments and hand-eye coordination testing.

“Going back 10 years, this is the kind of facility I would have loved to have access to,” said Lampard after cutting the ribbon to open the state-of-the-art sports clinic. “To have everything under one roof is so unique and it means you don’t need to visit multiple clinics, and see multiple doctors and surgeons for different issues.

“This is exactly the kind of facility players today will really benefit from, especially when you consider the technology they have here can help to pinpoint potential issues before you even know about them. That could genuinely have a big impact on how players detect and respond to injuries, which can only be a good thing.”

nanoM CEO Dr Bikram J Singh added: “Frank remains one of the most successful and highly regarded sportsmen of our generation and we look forward to working together to showcase the world-class technology and expertise that is available to current and former athletes just like him.”
