Aquatic therapy using underwater treadmill training in adults has been studied to improve physical fitness and reduce the weight bearing challenges of walking. Underwater treadmill training is an innovative way to unload body weight that allows a person with gait impairment to walk on a treadmill submerged in a water tank. Gait training can be performed in a very controlled setting with an underwater treadmill because speed, water depth, and water temperature can be easily manipulated and reproduced, as well as adjusted to achieve a point of relative neutral buoyancy. Patients utilizing aquatic therapy with Hydro Track Underwater Treadmill have found improved motor function, improved sense of self-confidence and personal well-being.
