HYDRO WORX 300

VARIABLE SPEED UNDERWATER TREADMILL

What is HYDROWORX?

The HydroWorx 300 Series is the benchmark for self-contained, construction-free underwater treadmill devices. Utilizing warm water therapy as a medium to enhance rehabilitation and performance through water’s buoyancy, resistance and hydrostatic pressure, this advanced hydrotherapy system provides the ultimate rehabilitation advantage.

“Hydrworx allows us to treat all of our patients more effectively – from athletes to geriatrics and pediatrics. I became a therapist to help people move. And there is no better way to do this than in a HydroWorx pool.”

EARLY AQUATIC PHYSICAL THERAPY IMPROVES FUNCTION AND DOES NOT INCREASE RISK OF WOUND-RELATED ADVERSE EVENTS FOR ADULTS AFTER ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS

This meta-analysis from LaTrobe University set out to combine research from multiple studies to determine the effects of aquatic physical therapy on adverse events for adults. It was determined that after orthopedic surgery aquatic physical therapy improves function and does not increase the risk of wound-related adverse events and is as effective as land-based therapy in terms of pain, edema, strength, and range of motion in the early postoperative period.

METABOLIC COST COMPARISON OF RUNNING ON AN AQUATIC TREADMILL WITH WATER JETS AND LAND TREADMILL WITH INCLINE

This study, conducted at Utah State University, compared the metabolic cost at specific inclines while running on a land treadmill to running speeds with selected jet resistance on an aquatic treadmill. The results showed that an increase in speed and incline on a land based treadmill shows a linear increase in the metabolic cost comparison, whereas on an aquatic treadmill it shows a more cubic change. Running with selected jet resistance on an aquatic treadmill results in greater change in metabolic cost than running on a land treadmill.

HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS WITH HYDROWORX

his study, conducted at Utah State University, set out to quantify the efficacy of a 6-week aquatic treadmill exercise program specifically for individuals with osteoarthritis (OA) on measures of pain, balance, function and mobility. It was determined that patients with OA display reduced joint pain and improved balance, function and mobility after participating in the program that incorporated a balance and HIIT training component. Adherence to the exercise was exceptional and no participants reported adverse eects, suggesting that aquatic treadmill exercise that incorporates high-intensity intervals is well-tolerated by patients with OA and seems to be effective at managing symptoms of OA.alls.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF UNDERWATER TREADMILL EXERCISE FOR ACTIVE ADULTS

This study at the University of Wisconsin was conducted to assess the health benefits of hydrotherapy in active adults. This five week study found that hydrotherapy is a positive way to improve flexibility, sleep patterns, and reduce muscle and joint pain in middle-aged and older adults with a history of orthopedic limitations and discomfort.
