The Aquatrainer is an excellent rehabilitation method for use after injury to the locomotor system. Using the Aquatrainer can significantly speed up the healing process after injuries such as tendon damage, joint problems and spinal or back aches.
The buoyancy of the water in combination with the cushioned Forest Floor grealty relieve the pressure on tendons, ligaments and joints of a horse. In many cases, there is no need for prolonged periods of rest and non-mobility in the horse box even after severe injury- the use of the Aquatrainer has a positive effect on the wellbeing and mental state of the injured horse.
The adjustable water levels are a particularly useful function that allows you to choose how weighted the exercise environment will be. Higher water levels mean greater bouyancy and less pressure on injured body parts. The optimum water level can be set according to the desired training difficulty or following indication (direction) by a veterinarian.
