Westview Health Care Center opened it's doors March 1st on the highly anticipated state-of-the-art, high-tech therapy gymnasium which contains a new Hydroworx 500 Professional Series Therapy pool by HydroWorx International Inc, fully equipped with a variable speed underwater treadmill, observation windows, swim in place directional resistance jets, multiple therapy work stations and a pool mounted technology package, to accommodate outpatient aquatic therapy services.
The high-tech, cutting edge underwater system will provide the latest therapeutic technology to serve a segment of the population who would benefit by the advantages of water buoyancy, which minimizes the effects of gravity by displacing body weight. The integration of the HydroWorx spa provides an opportunity to accelerate recovery due to an injury or surgery, allowing each patient to exercise more and increase muscle strength in a pain free, low stress and stable environment. Aquatic therapy can alleviate Arthritis discomfort, joint pain, chronic pain and fibromyalgia, while aiding to increase circulation and improve endurance.
Industry leader, HydroWorx International Inc, was selected by Westview for its ability to provide advanced technology to meet a variety of individual patient needs. Some of the HydroWorx International Incorporated customers include NASA, the New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, San Diego Padres, Philadelphia Eagles, University of Connecticut, Houston Rockets, New York Rangers, Boston University; and multiple healthcare settings throughout the country.
"We are very excited to bring this new aquatic therapy discipline to our rehabilitation program for the outpatient populations. The state-of-the-art gymnasium and aquatic therapy program solidifies our commitment to addressing the diverse range of patient needs, in order to provide the best possible health care services to our community," remarks Westview Director of Rehabilitation Phuong Nilo.
