Aquatic Therapy Room UPDATE

A couple weeks ago VandalVenue's Larry Johnson made a quick stop in Moscow and visited the newly completed Aquatic Therapy Room, located on the second floor of the Iverson Strength and Speed Center. The project was completed this past winter, and we finally had a few minutes to view one of Idaho's newest training and rehab systems....one of the only systems of it's kind in the northwest!

At last! We finally took some time out of the hectic summer schedule to view Idaho's new Aquatic Therapy Room located on the second floor of the Iverson Strength and Speed Center. Completed last winter, the center-piece of the room is the HydroWorx 2000 hydrotherapy pool. The HydroWorx client list is extensive, including (among others) Notre Dame, Stanford, Texas, Texas A&M, Philadelphia Eagles, BYU, Arizona, Dallas Mavericks, and many more. The list also now includes the University of Idaho.

The pool, and everything it offers from physical therapy to training, rounds out Idaho's new (and spacious) Iverson Strength and Speed Center, making it one of the most attractive conditioning facilities in the region. No small task, the Iverson Center has completely changed how ALL Idaho athletes prepare and train.

The images below are relatively self-explanatory. Among the standard features of this type of system is a fully adjustable floor which can be raised and lowered for easy access (no steps or ladders required), and is adjustable based on the height of the athlete. Underwater cameras allow the trainer and athlete to monitor performance, while cardiac information is also monitored. The 8 foot x 12 foot floor doubles as a variable speed treadmill, and the treadmill surface has a cushioned low-impact design. The system is also equipped with a fully automated, state-of-the-art heating unit providing variable water temperature for treatment of a wide spectrum of rehabilitation conditions.

The project has been first-rate and provides Idaho athletes a long-overdue state-of-the-art method of training.
