OUR CLINIC WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT PHYSIOTHERAPY, REHAB AND YOUR PERSONAL HEALTHCARE.
LiquidGym is located in Ottawa, in an 8,000 sq. ft. one-of-a-kind clinic offering hydrotherapy, hydrotraining, and land-based care.
Our clinic is focused on innovation in therapy care. There is currently no other clinic in Canada that offers the wide range of specialty equipment and systems, all under one roof.
IN-POOL HYDROTRAINING AND HYDROTHERAPY EQUIPMENT
LiquidGym’s underwater treadmills are designed with both fitness and physical rehabilitation in mind. By using a submerged treadmill, the natural buoyancy of the water supports the user, therefore eliminating 50% to 90% of their body weight. This allows for the user to maintain or increase their cardiovascular stamina, muscle toning, and flexibility by eliminating some of the gravitational stress that is placed on joints while walking or running. The speed of the treadmill can be adjusted for all levels of fitness and capabilities. Each treadmill has a set of side rails that can be adjusted to provide the user with additional stability while walking or running. Each treadmill also has a massage hose that can help with reducing swelling and scar tissue break up in specific areas.
ENDLESS POOL SWIM CURRENT
Endless Pool Swim Current allows for the swimmer to just swim–no need to worry about turning, stopping, or sharing a lane. The speed of the current is adjustable allowing for use by both beginner swimmers and competitive swimmers. The swim current has a top speed of 2.5mph (5.1km/h), equivalent to a 43-minute Ironman pace.
HYDRORIDER AQUABIKE PROFESSIONAL
The Hydrorider Aquabike was created to be pedaled while immersed in the water, with a specially designed resistance mechanism, allowing for users to adjust the bike to their personal fitness level. The buoyancy of water allows for users with movement restrictions due to arthritis, fibromyalgia, hip or knee replacement, injury, weight bearing limitations, and/or medical conditions to engage in therapy and training opportunities which might not be possible in other environments.
