HYPERICE Launches RAPTOR Sports Medicine Product


The leader in recovery and movement enhancement technology introduces a tool for training rooms, physical therapy and elite performance centers

LOS ANGELES, CA – Sept. 10, 2015 – HYPERICE, the innovators behind ice compression technology and VYPER, today announces the launch of its newest sports medicine innovation, RAPTOR by HYPERICE. Developed in Silicon Valley, RAPTOR is a cutting-edge tool that enhances and accelerates therapeutic recovery in sports medicine, post-operative recovery and general physical rehabilitation.

Unlike other percussive sports medicine tools, RAPTOR has multiple speeds and applicators, which allow several treatment settings. RAPTOR enables specialists to deliver a higher percussive frequency, while the myofascial release mechanism administers deep tissue percussive penetration to achieve better results with minimal to no discomfort. RAPTOR is already being used by elite sports teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Memphis Grizzles and Los Angeles Kings, amongst several other professional and collegiate level teams.

“RAPTOR is setting a new standard in the training room for more therapeutic and efficient treatment in a shorter period of time,” said Los Angeles Lakers Head Athletic Trainer Gary Vitti. “Because RAPTOR is more effective, practitioners are potentially able to see more patients, provide high quality, therapeutic benefits and, most of all, focus on really diving into muscular issues with renewed hand strength. I use it every day on our athletes; it’s a game changer.”

At just 3.6 pounds, RAPTOR’s lightweight and powerful design with adjustable speeds and interchangeable applicators makes it suitable for hundreds of protocols. The device works by rapid mechanical percussions, which penetrate several layers of muscle, up to 3,600 percussions per minute.

“We’re focused on bettering the world of sports medicine and recovery. By introducing new tools to the world’s top athletes, trainers and physical therapists first, we can be assured these innovations are making a difference quickly,” said HYPERICE Founder, Anthony Katz. “RAPTOR will further advance our mission as the premiere and leading brand in recovery and movement enhancement technology.”

RAPTOR retails for $3,499 and is now available for pre-order here. RAPTOR will begin to be delivered to customers on October 15th.
