Aquatic therapy or pool therapy consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water. It is a beneficial form of therapy that is useful for a variety of medical conditions. Aquatic therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance. The handlebars at max height are 42", min height is 37. The seat at max height is 40", min height is 35". One benefit of aquatic therapy is the buoyancy provided by the water. While submerged in water, buoyancy assists in supporting the weight of the patient. This decreases the amount of weight bearing which reduces the force of stress placed on the joints. This aspect of aquatic therapy is especially useful for patients with arthritis, healing fractured bones, or who are overweight. By decreasing the amount of joint stress it is easier and less painful to perform exercises.
Designed exclusively for the iPool above-ground exercise pool, the FitMax aquatic exercise bike is a terrific therapy tool for individuals and medical clinics. Aquatic therapy offers several benefits over other forms of treatment: it decreases the amount of weight that a patient has to bear, thus reducing the stress placed on the joints; it provides an excellent source of resistance; and it diminishes swelling. As a result, aquatic therapy is especially useful for patients with arthritis, people who are hoping to heal fractured bones, or folks who are battling obesity.
The exercise bike works by submerging your legs entirely in water, which gives you the necessary buoyancy and resistance to strengthen your muscle groups while still being sensitive to your injury. The water's hydrostatic pressure, meanwhile, also helps improve your exercise technique, as you're able to better feel the position of your joints during each movement. Finally, the water's warmth helps relax your muscles and vasodilate vessels, thereby increasing the blood flow to your injured areas. Put it all together and there's no better way to treat an injury or increase your strength without risking further damage. The iPool aquatic exercise bike is height-adjustable from 35 to 40 inches, with handlebars that vary from 37 to 42 inches.
