Treadmill Benefits

An underwater treadmill is great for the rehabilitation and recovery for patients. The increased resistance that water offers over the air means that it is more work than exercising normally. Exercising in water also has a lower impact on joints, this is due to the buoyancy properties of water.

An underwater treadmill both increases muscle rehabilitation, it is also great for general fitness and cardiovascular improvement due to the higher resistance and energy expenditure as mentioned above.

Delivery and installation

Delivery and installation is calculated on a job by job basis. Most installations require a one – two day installation. However new buildings can benefit from having pipes and wires placed in trenches during the build process, these jobs will require additional visits and possibly additional costs.

Note: Because every situation and floor covering is different Westcoast Hydrotherapy do not include the entry ramp or steps on the outside of the pool, we recommend that you wait until all floor screeds and coverings are complete before measuring and building your external entry ramp.

The external ramp or steps can be covered with the same wall or floor covering.
