Versatile HydroWorx 1200 Has Ability to Serve More
As a clinician, it is critical to find equipment and technology that has the ability to serve a variety of patient types and even athletes. Aquatic therapy in the HydroWorx 1200 Series pool, that is being utilized at many facilities, clinics and communities around the globe, has the ability to positively impact almost any individual.
At one facility in particular, Penn State University’s brand new Pegula Ice Arena, the HydroWorx 1200 is used almost non-stop for rehabilitation, conditioning and recovery. Not only can the pool challenge elite athletes, but the same pool is also versatile enough to enhance therapy and wellness sessions for older adults at PruittHealth in Savannah, GA.
This 6′ by 9’6″ unit contains a fully adjustable pool floor, allowing patients and athletes to stand on or be wheeled onto the underwater treadmill while it is flush with the surrounding floor and be lowered into the water. The pool depth can reach 5’6″ within 30 seconds, so patients can unload 20% to 100% of their body weight just by raising and lowering the floor. With the use of the underwater resistance jet technology, athletes and patients are able to increase the level of their workouts or add a challenge to their rehabilitation program. Additionally, using the underwater cameras and viewing monitors, clinicians are able to correct any incorrect patterns in gait immediately.
The HydroWorx 1200 has been a great investment for Penn State. We are able to put our hockey players in there to continue working out when they are not able to be on the ice or in the weight room training with any lower or upper body injuries. It has been a great tool for us to get our athletes back to a high level of competition quickly. – Justin Rogers, MEd, ATC, Men’s Hockey Athletic Trainer at Penn State University
