Samsung Equips New Facility with HydroWorx Pool
Middletown, PA–HydroWorx, the industry leader in aquatic therapy pools, may be based in a small town in Pennsylvania, but the company is making a big splash in Korea . The new Samsung Sports Science Centre near Seoul, will include a HydroWorx 1000 aquatic therapy pool – complete with an underwater treadmill and resistance jets to be used for training and rehabilitating some of the world’s top athletes, including Olympic hopefuls.
Established in 1969, Samsung is a world leader in electronic manufacturing. The company has also branched into the world of sports, owning several professional sports teams. Samsung has been an official sponsor of the Olympics since 1997. In addition, the company has a sponsorship deal with the Premier League football club, Chelsea FC, who recently purchased a HydroWorx 2000 series pool.
The Samsung Sports Training Center is scheduled to open later this year and will feature a HydroWorx pool to help its athletes remain healthy and on the field. When an athlete is chest deep in the pool, the buoyancy of the water results in less stress on the joints, allowing the athlete to rehab sooner and quicker.
The HydroWorx 1000 features a powered underwater treadmill integrated in the pool floor as well as powerful jets strategically placed for resistance training, rehabilitation, and conditioning. These pools are used by sports elite from around the world, including Manchester United, Chelsea FC, the San Antonio Spurs and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
