Aquatic Therapy injury recovery with AquaLogix fluid resistance technology
The AquaLogix Fitness System is a multi-patented, diverse array of aquatic exercise equipment that can be utilized to treat a wide variety of patient conditions.
This technology can be used in the treatment of shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, and low back conditions.research to confirm and support the use of the equipment.
A type of aquatic fitness equipment that has been created more recently and is gaining recognition among fitness experts is called AquaLogix.
AquaLogix capitalizes on what they call “the principle of fluid Omni-directional drag resistance” in water.
This simply means, being able to work a muscle group equally and smoothly in any direction. In fluid dynamics, drag, which is sometimes called fluid resistance, refers to forces that act on a solid object in the direction of the relative fluid flow velocity.
- How would you like to regain your range of motion and strength without “over-doing-it”? Better yet, how about never losing it at all?
- With Aquatic Therapy, you can avoid joint stiffness and minimize the build-up of scar tissue, getting you back in the game!
- AquaLogix gives you infinite degrees of recovery variability in not only resistance, but movement patterns as well.
This allows you to attain the exact level best suited for your condition at any point in your recovery.
- Rather than immobilization, reconditioning and the reintroduction of many movements can begin much sooner recovery.
The result is a return to readiness weeks or even months faster than land based rehabilitation and recovery alone.
A study proposal by John Nettie, PT to determine the efficacy of an aquatic therapy protocol using AquaLogix technology vs. “Standard” Aquatic Therapy Equipment In Cardinal and Multiplanar (PNF) Patterns with Patients in order to improve function and reduce symptoms in patients with non-descript low back pain.
