Aquatic Therapy and HydroWorx At FYZICAL
The HydroWorx pool has a variable speed, underwater treadmill that allows the patient to ambulate in a limited weight-bearing environment. In fact, the HydroWorx pool eliminates 20-90% of the patient’s weight while they are walking! The pool is also large enough to conduct other aerobic and functional exercises like stair climbing, squatting, and single-leg jumps!

What is the HydroWorx Pool?
The pool features a vairable speed, underwater treadmill that can accelerate from .1 MPH to 7.5 MPH in safe, .2 mph increments. Resistance is created by underwater jets allowing our patients to challenge both their upper and lower body. The pool also features real-time, video documentation to allow the patient and clinician to view the patien’t walk, jog, and run pattern while utilizing the treadmill. Our HydroWorx pool features a depth of about 4 feet and requires the patient to be 5 feet or taller for use. The floor is not adjustable.

The HydroWorx Pool at FYZICAL
We feature our HydroWorx pool at our Jones clinic. The pool was originally a gift from Tiger Woods to D. Keith Kleven to help Keith enhance his patient care for those patients experiencing pain in traditional treatment.
Our pool is the not only the ONLY HydroWorx pool in Southern Nevada, it is also the ONLY pool to feature an underwater treadmill in Las Vegas.
