         Underwater Treadmill

St. Charles Animal Hospital is really proud to announce the arrival of our newest piece of equipment -
the Oasis Pro Underwater Treadmill. 
This is the probably the best quality treadmill that money can buy.
It is all about your pet's health!

 

 

  • Rehabilitation after joint surgeries, fracture repairs, or muscle surgeries - the level of the water is adjusted to decrease stress on the joints, while at the same time increasing the resistance on certain muscle groups.

  • Increasing muscle strength - in addition to water level adjustments, there are water jets to massage muscles during exercise, and this treadmill can be inclined to increase the muscle building.

  • Arthritic patients - Elevated water levels are used to take the stress off the joints, while allowing an increasing range of motion.  This is extremely beneficial. 

  • Weight Loss - the water's bouyancy reduces the weight bearing stress on the joints, while increasing burning of calories.
