NSI launch state-of- the-art rehab facility

KUALA LUMPUR: After 10 years of contributing to the development of high-performance sports in the country, the National Sports Institute (NSI) are ready to move forward with the launching of the Integrated High Performance Recovery Centre.

The RM13.8mil world-class facility, to be located at the NSI in Bukit Jalil, will be equipped with the latest rehabilitation amenities to provide athletes with sophisticated recovery techniques.

It’s expected to optimise the aspect of performance as well as the recovery process after training or tournaments.

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu described the rehabilitation centre as a proud achievement as well as a benchmark in the field of sports science in the country.

“It’s state-of-the-art and I find it to be of international standard. Surely, this is good news for athletes and members of the public.

“I am grateful that it has been completed and started operating.

“I hope it will be used properly,” said Faizal after the NSI’s 10th anniversary celebration yesterday.

“I have also asked the NSI to ensure the facilities are managed at the highest level for the long-term.”

The rehabilitation centre is divided into two areas. The wet area comprises a 25-metre swimming pool, contrast bath pool and rehabilitation pool while the dry area provides a warm down space that has several equipment for the rehabilitation process.

The facility is also meant for high-performance athletes, sports clubs and associations as well as open to the public so that it will provide exposure and options to the general public to systematic and scientific methods in the injury rehabilitation process.

Meanwhile, NSI chief executive officer Ahmad Faedzal Md Ramli said such facilities would also provide opportunities for sports and medical science researchers or practitioners to carry out high-impact studies in a bid to raise the performance level of national sports. — Bernama
