Underwater TreadmillWater's natural buoyancy gently supports joints to encourage free movement as you work against resistance in all directions. Studies show underwater treadmills are a great alternative to land-based treadmills.
People unable to exercise on land can achieve immediate rehabilitation results in water. You burn as many calories, enjoy an increased range of motion, and suffer less muscle soreness - all without the pounding of land based exercise. Walking training can be done much earlier after surgery using an underwater treadmill at low speeds - allowing patients to get back to their normal living earlier. Underwater treadmills are also beneficial for people with arthritis and other disorders of the weight-bearing joints; muscular dystrophy; muscle atrophy and injury to the lower extremities.
Use the variable speeds of the treadmill to vary the intensity of your walk or jog. By adjusting the speed of the treadmill you can create individually tailored workouts to take your fitness to the next level.
Our new Aquatic Treadmills offer a spacious 20" wide belt for walking or running. Both manual and hydraulically powered versions are available. The hydraulic treadmill is easy to install and is powered by a 5 hp motor and has a top speed of 5.5 mph. A handy remote control turns the treadmill on or off and allows you to increase or decrease the speed. The manual treadmill is simply placed at the bottom of the pool, no installation is required.
