Adjustable Floor & Depth

HydroWorx provides features that permit customers to easily manipulate the pools’ depth, creating a personalized unweighting environment for every individual who steps on the treadmill surface. This flexibility aids clinicians by strategically unloading the patients or athletes bodyweight for each session or stage of his/her rehabilitation or fitness program.

Zero Depth Access and Infinite Unloading Options (2000 & 1200 Series Pools)

The entire pool floor is fully adjustable in height, allowing individuals to simply stand or sit on the treadmill while it is flush with the surrounding floor and be lowered into the water. The pool depth can reach 6’ within 30 seconds, so a therapist can strategically unload 20% to 100% of a subject’s weight by raising or lowering the treadmill to manipulate the water depth.

Multiple Water Depth (3500, 750 & 500)

Patients can stand on the pool’s large raised rear platform for additional body-weight loading; this permits greater flexibility in rehabilitation and performance activities.

Variable Water Depth (available with the Technology Package upgrade on select models)

A touch of a button on the remote control prompts the optional variable water depth system to add or remove up to 8” of water to attain pool depths ranging from 4’6” to 6’3” (deeper when the pool features the deep well option). This permits clinicians’ control over weight-bearing levels during each pool session.
