HydroWorx Signs Five Pro Teams in NY Metro Region
Middletown, PA–It’s a sweep! The industry’s leading designer and manufacturer of aquatic therapy scores contracts with New York pro teams in football, hockey, soccer, and baseball. New clients include the Jets, Giants, Red Bulls, Devils, and Mets.
All five teams will utilize the HydroWorx 2000 series pool, featuring a floor that doubles as a variable speed treadmill that can rise to floor level for easy access by injured or even wheelchair-bound athletes. The floor can then be lowered to any depth up to six feet and can function at any range of speed up to 8.5 mph. Speeds can be increased in .2 mph increments. Also key to the training and conditioning of the athletes are the Thermal and Polar Plunges that will be installed to assist in recovery and revitalization. Temperatures at 50 degrees in the Polar Plunge help control joint inflammation and enhance muscle recovery. Thermal Heating units are engineered to relax tight muscles and stimulate the release of endorphins. Each pool features strategic jets and powerful massage hoses to isolate trigger points on the individual. Also key to HydroWorx pools is the underwater camera that allows trainers to observe movements and diagnose gait irregularities in real time.
The NY Jets will install HydroWorx equipment in a new 120000 sq.ft. training facility at their team headquarters in Florham Park, NJ. Basketball, hockey and soccer will be the sports line-up at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ this fall. Here the NJ Devils, Seton Hall, and a new Major Indoor Soccer League franchise will battle it out in the state-of-the-art sports and entertainment venue featuring HydroWorx aquatic therapy. The NY Mets will see action in 2009 at the all new Citi Field which is currently under construction.
Rick Guter, Head Athletic Trainer and Physical Therapist for Major League Soccer’s Red Bull New York, speaks volumes about the benefits of their (to-be-installed) HydroWorx pools, “I am a firm believer in aquatic therapy, having been a swimmer/triathlete all my life. We are about to begin construction on a new state of the are a training facility that will be completed next year, and one of the things I stressed to our owners when they were designing the facility, was that we must include an aquatic component to the training/rehab portion of the design. Aquatic therapy, in my opinion, is one of the most underutilized forms of training/rehabilitation. However, it is one of the most important; it allows us to do more quicker and safer than if we were on dry land. The resistance that the water provides is accommodating so that if a player is having a tough time, it will provide enough resistance to make the exercise beneficial, but not overexerting. I try to include an aquatic component into all the rehabs I do, and with the addition of the HydroWorx’s pools that we are putting into the facility, it will make our athletes that much better prepared to participate in training and games. One of the stated goals of our owner, when we decided to build this facility, was to make it the standard-bearer for not only soccer training sites, but for all of pro sports, and with the addition of the HydorWorx’s pool, we are well on our way!”
