What are...
Treadmills (UWTM)

Hydrotherapy is becoming an integral part of the post-operative rehabilitation process of animals. With the availability of underwater treadmills and swimming pools, the possibilities of offering low-risk exercise post-operatively to maintain form and function are increasing.

The underwater treadmill benefits the patient because it allows reduced weight-bearing exercise and improves the absorption and transportation of oxygen through aerobic exercise. It is an invaluable drug-free alternative treatment for many conditions. Westcoast Hydrotherapy treadmills allow rehabilitation to be controlled in a safe environment, with high operative success rates.

System Options

Storage tank pumped system: Fully pumped where the same water is transferred to and from the storage tank to the treadmill via the plant pack, where the water is filtered, heated and sanitised.

Swimming pool fed system: Pool fed – which is the same as the pumped option but instead of a storage tank, the water is transferred to and from your hydrotherapy pool.

Fresh water system: This works the same as a loft tank. The storage tank automatically starts to fill with fresh water. After the treatment has finished the water in the treadmill is sent to the waste. Service costs are low as there are no pumps or pump running costs. Zero replacement and chemical costs, plus no water treatment courses are required.

Control Panel Technology: Using a dedicated touch control panel you’ll be able to quickly and easily learn how to get the best out of your treadmill with the minimum of training. There is the option to record and review chemical readings and treatments along with their timings.  An overdue reading prompt ensures that the water quality is correct, ensuring the safety of both handlers and animals.
