In Water Treadmill Ferno System Hydrotherapy has been proven effective in both equine and human rehabilitation for more than fifteen years and has quickly gained acceptance in the canine world since its first use in 1998. The water buoyancy decreases excessive force on the joints and provides resistance throughout the range of motion and provides the ability to strengthen the patients muscles. The temperature in our hydro-treadmill stays between 94-98 F. The warm water assists in pain reduction increases blood flow and circulation and helps with the elasticity of soft tissue. The water height is easily adjustable and is regulated to accommodate different sized animals and their specific needs.
