University of Kentucky Sports Facility Goes High Tech with HydroWorx

Middletown, PA-Athletes at the University of Kentucky will soon enjoy the same training room advantages that a growing number of elite professional and amateur athletes enjoy. The university will install a high-tech pool with an underwater treadmill built by HydroWorx of Middletown, Pa., as part of the new $27.5 million, 92,300 square foot practice facility expansion to Memorial Coliseum.

Since 1998, HydroWorx has been solidifying its reputation among some of the nation’s top athletic trainers as a force in the aquatic therapy arena. The University of Kentucky, despite being the winningest program in college basketball history, believes they are falling behind when it comes to practice facilities. “We must have the vision and commitment to maintain our status as the best. Right now, we are behind with respect to practice facilities. This facility will provide first class space for both basketball programs, including a state-of-the-art training room, weight room, film room and administrative offices.”

The HydroWorx 2000, one of three commercial underwater treadmill pool models sold by the company, allows injured athletes to duplicate dry-land running or walking form but at a fraction of their real weight. In the near weightless environment of an underwater treadmill, an injured athlete can walk or run without over-taxing the joint. Other features, such as an underwater video camera and computer monitors allow trainers to easily and accurately diagnose problems and document a patient’s path toward recovery. The result is typically a speedier, more complete recovery from injury or surgery. That is a bottom bottom-line issue and it is precisely why growing numbers of pro sports teams, universities, and even the U.S. Navy Seals, have invested in HydroWorx pools. If you are considering a story on the new facility, aquatic therapy in general, or even important developments in sports medicine, please do not hesitate to call. We have much experience and access to many experts in the field.
