    Manchester United have unveiled a new state of the art medical facility which they hope will reduce injury rehabilitation time for their players.

    New scanning equipment has been installed in a 'medical imaging suite' at the AON Training Complex in Carrington.

    The equipment, provided by club sponsor Toshiba, will help United's medical staff diagnose injuries earlier, improve player rehabilitation times and flag up potentially preventable injuries.

    Toshiba said the new suite "Will enable Manchester United to identify, treat and rehabilitate players with a speed not currently experienced in world football today."

    Manager David Moyes added: "I'm absolutely delighted to have this facility fully up and running. Not only is it cutting edge medical technology, it will also help us detect the early signs of injury and help to refine the rehabilitation process - something that will pay dividends for years to come."
