Exercisers, Aerobic, Treadmill, Hydrotherapy
Definition : Treadmill exercisers designed for use partially immersed in water, utilizing the water for additional resistance but simultaneously alleviating stress on the joints in the reduced-gravity environment. These exercisers typically consist of a continuous tread and an electric motor, controls for the belt speed and slope, and a display that shows equipment characteristics and training information (e.g., speed, time, elevation, energy consumption). Most hydrotherapy treadmills have front-mounted rails; some devices also include water jets and/or water temperature controls. All materials used must be water- and corrosion-resistant; electric components must satisfy appropriate electrical safety standards. Hydrotherapy treadmills are available as independent units that can be mounted in standard pools (including lap pools), custom-made pools, or full-body hydrotherapy tanks. They are used in healthcare facilities, clinics, and at home for exercise, training, and/or rehabilitation.
