The Water Walker is an underwater treadmill that was designed for recovering athletes who want to ease the aches of working out with this high engagement workout tool.
Swimming-based recovery programs have been successful in helping athletes stay fit without risking further injury. Water workouts put athlete's bodies through a controlled range of motions, while preventing the high impact that's inevitable while training on dry land. The Water Walker reduces an athletes body weight by 80%, which minimizes the shock to the joints.
The underwater treadmill proves to be an effective method of training for athletes recovering from an injury, or, for the elderly, who would also reap the benefits of this low impact form of exercise. Through the Water Walker, muscles are strengthened, in a controlled, risk-reduced environment.
