Canon Medical Systems Kits Out Manchester United’s Aon Training Complex Helping To Minimise Injury And Keep Players In Action.

Keeping players playing is at the top of any sports club’s priority list, and none more so than Manchester United Football Club. Injury is disruptive to team plans and frustrating for players, which is why having the best medical equipment for injury diagnosis and treatment that money can buy is an essential.

This is where Canon Medical Systems and Manchester United have joined forces to provide medical scanning equipment to ensure their elite players get elite care: monitoring healing of injuries, fine-tuning rehabilitation processes, and ensuring that speedy diagnosis and treatment underpins top-ranking performance, especially when careers, high profile championships, and multi-million pound investments are at stake.

» It’s fantastic to have such state-of-the-art equipment at the training ground. I believe the club will be the first to use this equipment as it isn’t available anywhere else in the UK yet.«
