Faster post-surgical rehabilitation

Reduced inflammation


Increased joint range of motion


Pain relief


Enhanced mobility


Improved muscle strength and flexibility


Improved balance


Effective cardiovascular training without wear and tear on joints


Weightless environment, pain free way to exercise
  
Aquatic therapy helps patients and athletes start rehabilitation much sooner because water provides a non-weight bearing environment.


The HydroWorx 200 has many distinct features that set it apart from standard therapy pools:

  • Adjustable floor from 0’ to 6’ for easy patient access
  • Adjustable and variable water depths and temperature
  • Variable speed underwater treadmill
  • Large treatment area of 8’ x 12’ that can accommodate 4 to 6 people
  • Resistance jets, underwater cameras and monitoring system
  • Therapeutic massage hose
  • Safety handrails/ removable support bars


The HydroWorx opens a world of possibilities to patients who are unable to do traditional, land-based therapy. The buoyancy of the water supports the body. It provides low or no impact resistance that helps patients improve mobility, strength and function more rapidly than with traditional therapy alone.

  1. 5 reasons why Aquatic Therapy will change the way you think about rehabilitation:

  1. ​​
    Unbelievable rejuvenation and recovery capabilities

    Research shows when you exercise on an underwater treadmill, you will experience a significant decrease in muscle soreness compared to those who exercise only on a land treadmill. An additional research study from the University of Wisconsin showed improved flexibility and sleep patterns for those who exercised on underwater treadmills.

  2. ​​
    Lean muscle mass and overall leg strength is improved with underwater treadmill exercise.

    ​When comparing exercising on land to aquatic-based exercise, a research study conducted at Texas A&M University demonstrates that exercising on an underwater treadmill yields greater results in building lean muscle mass. The added resistance from the water and resistancetherapy jets makes underwater treadmill exercise more challenging for your leg muscles.

  3. ​​
    Pain is greatly reduced when exercising in warm water

    When you are bearing less body weight, the stress on your legs and joints is greatly diminished. Additionally, the warm water acts as an aid for sore, swollen or injured joints and muscles, resulting in less pain and increased range of motion.

  4. ​​
    Begin rehab sooner in the water than on land to reduce inflammation and accelerate rehabilitation.

    The ability to reduce your weight-bearing status in the water allows you to begin rehab exercises sooner than land-based exercises; thus speeding up recovery and minimizing the loss of range of motion on the injured joint. The hydrostatic pressure of water also naturally decreses inflammation to increase circulation.

  5. ​​
    An exercise solution for all levels of weight bearing.

    As a non or partial weight-bearing patient, having a way to move and safely begin rehabilitation can do amazing things for your body and emotional well being. The bouyancy of water eliminates up to 90% of a person's body weight, allowing you to safely begin therapeutic exercises shortly after injury without fear of falling or re-injury.
