What are the unique performance features of the HydroWorx 500 Series Pool?

Integrated Variable Speed Underwater Treadmill

The entire floor doubles as a variable speed treadmill that smoothly increases from 0 to 7.5 mph in safe .2 mph increments. The treadmill surface has a cushioned low-impact design with excellent traction.

Multiple Water Depths and Work Stations

Varying water depths and work stations allow clinicians to treat multiple patients at different stages of weight bearing status.

Resistance Jet with Massage Hose

A resistance jet is essential for competitive sports performance training, therapy protocols, swimming or deep tissue massage. The jet has nearly 200 different water speeds to choose from.

Versatile Installation

The HydroWorx 500 can be installed in-ground, partially in-ground, or above ground.

Removable Stainless Steel Support Bars

Lightweight multi-functional and positional bars ensure patient comfort and security. Six different configurations are available.

Large Treatment Area

14’x 7’6″x 5’4″ deep water treatment area easily accommodates up to five patients during workouts or therapy sessions.

Variable Water Temperature

A fully automated, state-of-the-art-heating unit provides variable water temperature for treatment of a wide spectrum of rehabilitation conditions. Electric or gas heaters are available.

Commercial Filtration System

State-of-the-art filtration and water chemistry system filters and purifies the HydroWorx pool automatically.

Technology Package

This optional feature includes a fully integrated computer system with custom designed documentation software. The software monitors the pool functions, treadmill speed and jet speed and then uses this information to display and store information in a patient database for future reference and progress reports. Package also includes handheld wireless remote that controls all pool functions.

What are a few of the advantages that the HydroWorx 500 technology provides?

  • The completely integrated underwater treadmill (speeds from 0 to 7.5 mph) allows for correct simulation of land-based biomechanics. Sports specific exercises such as sprinting, marching, back-pedaling, shuffling, lateral braiding steps and plyometric activities are especially effective when performed on an underwater treadmill.
  • The video system allows the athletic trainer or physical therapist to diagnose gait patterns, record treatment sessions and document progress. The athlete or patient benefits from being able to see himself or herself on the flat screen monitor and execute the desired protocol faster, thus speeding up the healing process.
  • The water-resistant hand-held remote controls all functions of the 500 Series with the Technology Package Upgrade. This gives the athletic trainer or physical therapist complete freedom of movement while administering treatment or conditioning sessions.
  • Computer documentation (also available with the Technology Package upgrade): HydroWorx owns the proprietary rights to the software that was written exclusively for the HydroWorx 500 Series. The software monitors the pool functions, treadmill speed, and jet power and then uses this information to display current session information, and stores the information in a patient database for future reference, and progress reports.

What is an example of how the college & pro sports teams utilize the HydroWorx 500 Series Pool?

Multiple-athlete, cardiovascular interval training is accomplished with directional resistance and the underwater treadmill. Athletes are placed in alignment with two resistance jets so that the resistance streams hit the mid-point of the athlete’s chest.

Sample Session: Begin the interval with the treadmill speed at 6 mph but without jet resistance. After a warm-up of 5 minutes, increase the treadmill speed to 7.5 mph and activate the jets at a resistance level of the trainers choosing. This will provide a resistance that simulates an intense up-hill run and elevate the athlete’s heart rate. Stop the jet for approximately 20-30 seconds and begin again.

Not only is this pool an impressive visual in our clinic, it allows us to reach all of our patients more effectively — from athletes to geriatrics and pediatrics. I became a therapist to help people move. And there is no better way to do this than in a HydroWorx pool.

The Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Institute Weldon Russo, Director

We’ve had remarkable success stories from various individuals including Major League Soccer players returning to play months earlier than expected and crediting that in large part to their use of the HydroWorx 2000 underwater treadmill.

Fortius Sport & Health Caleb Cousens, Online Marketing Coordinator

Investing in high-quality equipment and the associated implementation costs may seem daunting, but when these state-of-the-art tools help build our business, brand us as the facility of choice in our communities and increase the scope of our operations, they are investments worthy of a deep dive.

Clear Choice Health Care Geoff Fraser, Senior Vice President of Operations

"HydroWorx allows us to return players to training in a much better physical condition than if we did not have it. For example, the integrated underwater treadmill and resistance jets allows us to work specific running drills performed on the field much earlier for our typical injuries such as ankle ligament sprains, knee ligament sprains and fractures.”

Manchester United FC Neil Hough, Head Physiotherapist

Our statistics thus far show 28% increase in center of gravity, 37% in lower body strength, and 19% of clients moved out of fall risk category. We will continue to use FallProof H2O and the HydroWorx 1200 Series, as we are getting great results and the best part of all, our participants love it too!

Lakeview Village Jackie Halbin, Living Well Manager

When considering return to sport, the difference between a normal swimming pool and a HydroWorx is half [when compared to land rehabilitation]. It is a 20 – 25% improvement from getting a player back from a typical ankle, knee or muscle injury.

West Bromwich Albion FC Dr. Mark Gillett, Head of Performance

Our HydroWorx pool gives our patients a great way to exercise without pain. By using aquatic therapy with an underwater treadmill, they can oftentimes return faster to the sports and activities they love doing earlier than they would be able to with land-based therapy alone.

OrthoCarolina Cheryl Bennett, Aquatic Therapist

"The HydroWorx pools are the highlight of our new Sports Medicine Center! We are now able to get people healthier and back to play quicker and stronger than ever before!"

Butler University Ryan Galloy, Director of Sports Medicine

The HydroWorx pools allows us to provide the best care possible for our athletes by giving us a tool to unload body weight while still allowing them to get work done whether it be a cardio or a rehab session. The pools play a big role in their recovery from sore muscles to major surgeries.

University of Utah Katherine Lorens, Assistant Athletic Trainer

Overall, we have far exceeded our volume and revenue projections. Many local physicians want aquatic therapy as part of the treatment plan for their patients. The physicians have a lot of trust in us. Every single day we have patients in the pool — sometimes it’s been booked to capacity. We do more volume than any other therapy provider in a two-county region.

Cox Monett Clinic Kevin Norris Rehab Manager

Besides a clinician’s manual skills a HydroWorx pool is the best tool you can have in your facility, period!! Its versatility is unmatched with the ability to effectively and efficiently treat any type of orthopedic condition.

How Much Does A HydroWorx Cost?

Ergonomic stairs and a handrail allow safe accessibility to this pool. 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. Patients and athletes can utilize the pool’s rear platform for water therapy exercises where additional bodyweight loading is desired.

Grow Your Business With a HydroWorx Exercise Pool

A compact, budget-friendly exercise pool, the HydroWorx 500 makes an ideal entry point for clinicians looking to grow their facility by expanding their therapy and fitness capabilities. For physical therapists, water therapy gives patients a low-impact exercise environment that has been clinically proven to lead to positive rehabilitation outcomes including increased range of motion, faster recovery and improved muscle strength.

Clinicians can use the HydroWorx 500’s optional video monitoring package to review training sessions and gain critical insight into gait patterns and other factors impacting a patient or athlete’s performance. Regular therapeutic exercise in a water therapy pool has also been shown to reduce recovery time from major surgery, allowing patients and athletes to return to function faster.
