Champions League Champions Champion HydroWorx
Both Chelsea and Manchester United Utilize HydorWorx Pools to Stay on Top

Middletown, PA-For the first time in the history of European Football’s Champions League final, two English teams will be squaring off against one another. The Chelsea and Manchester United Football Clubs will clash for the European Cup on May 21st in Moscow. The European Champion Clubs’ Cup is widely considered to be the most prestigious club trophy in the sport.

This upcoming football match has the world abuzz with anticipation; the event is especially exciting for a small company from Middletown, PA. HydroWorx International, Inc. manufactures underwater treadmills for aquatic therapy and exercise—and both Chelsea and Manchester United are prominent HydroWorx customers.

Chelsea defeated Liverpool 3-2 in a thrilling semi-final match. Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich took ownership of the west London club five years ago. Since then he has bankrolled the club to two league titles as well as FA Cup and League Cup successes.

Chelsea FC chief executive Peter Kenyon says “Developing home grown players is a vitally important goal for Chelsea. To achieve this [club owner Roman Abramovich] has invested in the land, the infrastructure and the latest training, medical and other technology to give us the best chance of meeting those goals.”

Chelsea’s players get a rehabilitation and conditioning boost from HydroWorx’s flagship product—the 2000 Series pool. It boasts a host of high-performance features which represent the cooperative efforts of visionaries, engineers, and clinicians. The moveable floor, underwater treadmill, resistance jet technology, computer and camera systems, and automated water temperature capability satisfy the varied demands of traditional physical rehabilitation, as well as those of top, world-class athletes.

Manchester United utilizes a HydroWorx 500 Series pool for their aquatic therapy. Ground-based gait training and sport-specific activities are easily duplicated on the variable speed underwater treadmill. Strategically-placed, high-powered water jets can be used for resistance training and deep-tissue massage. Athletes can utilize the pool’s raised rear platform for exercises where additional body-weight loading is desired. A state-of-the-art heating unit allows for fully-automated water temperatures.

According to Rob Swire, Head Physiotherapist for the Manchester United Football Club, “HydroWorx provides better all around conditioning and strengthening.” Both teams’ success indicates just that– either squad can potentially win both the Premier League Trophy and the European Cup.
