Hydrotherapy involves doing exercises in water with the assistance of a physiotherapist. The advantage of exercising in the warm water of a therapy pool is that it is a safe way to move without causing excessive joint strain. And as the water is warmer than in a normal pool, it is better for the blood vessels. Hydrotherapy in combination with warm water also improves blood flow to damaged tissue.
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT FOR HYDROTHERAPY
This form of therapy also uses special equipment and various flotation aids. In swimming pools where this form of therapy is given there is almost always a movable pool floor because this makes it easier for patients to enter the pool, and the advantage for the therapist is that they are better able to support the patient because the floor can be set to any desired depth.
Besides movable floors, Variomedic also supplies other equipment for this therapy. For example, special stairs to enter and leave the pool, a Poolpod, and, of course, disabled persons lifts. All of this equipment and the options are described on this website and give you a good impression of the range. Variomedic is a subsidiary of the Variopool group and has been the market leader in this field for many years.
