New digital equipment to boost local sports medicine


Minister Meriton accepts part of the equipment from Round Table Seychelles chairman Bernard Delpeche

The equipment which includes a V02 max bike, a portable continuous passive motion (CPM) machine, a digital ultrasonic imaging system machine and a blood lactates testing machine among others is a gift from Round Table Seychelles.

It was the minister responsible for sports Vincent Meriton who accepted the equipment from the association’s chairman Bernard Delpeche during a presentation ceremony yesterday at the NSC boardroom at Stad Linite.

Present at the event were principal secretary for youth and sports Denis Rose, chief executive of the NSC Alain Volcère, members of Round Table Seychelles and staff of the NSC.

Addressing those present, Mr Meriton firstly thanked the organisation for its vital contribution towards the successful 8th Indian Ocean Island Games held in August on home soil, before expressing further gratitude to the members for once again having local sports in their sight.

He said the gesture illustrates the willingness of partners to contribute in the new phase of the country’s sports development programme.

Mr Meriton reassured the Round Table Seychelles members that the equipment will be used appropriately to detect, prevent and cure injuries of local athletes.

On behalf of Round Table Seychelles, vice-chairman Dan Fontaine said the donation illustrates the organisation’s commitment towards the well-being of the country and its people. He also expressed the organisation’s support towards the work being done by the authority to promote local sports.

The ceremony ended with an explanation on the equipment and their usage by sports therapist Derrick Sauzier.
