The Medical, Scientific and Welfare Committee in association with Vivomed will shortly launch a new medical and player welfare initiative which will significantly improve and standardise the emergency medical equipment available in all major County grounds.
Vivomed are a family owned specialist sports medicine and physiotherapy supply company based in Downpatrick, Co. Down. With over 10 years’ experience supplying first aid kits, pharmaceuticals and physiotherapy equipment to sports clubs throughout Ireland; they are in a unique position to help roll out this improvement to GAA medical facilities.
All 32 Counties will acquire a bespoke GAA trauma bag packed with a full range of emergency medical equipment that has been specifically designed for the requirements of the GAA. The roll out of the project will put the GAA on par with other international sporting organisations and will involve an investment of over €3,000 by each County board.
There will be an annual independent inspection of each bag, which will see any used items that are out of date or missing being replaced.
An official press release will take place shortly.
