The PT 500 Therapy Pool offers the greatest value in a SwimEx hydrotherapy pool. It is made of superior fiberglass pool construction in a one-piece design with no seams - no pool assembly is required. The PT 500 therapy pool is multi-depth. The main depth is 50 inches (127cm). Floor inserts create a 38-inch (96.5cm) depth and a deep well in the front third of the pool is 62 inches (157.5cm) deep. A 74 inch (188cm) deep well is an available option.
The PT 500 pool features eight distinct workout/therapy stations including plyometric pads, open closed kinetic exercise benches and steps, and an angled running platform. The treadmill simulator (40-degree angled pad) allows a rehab patient to begin running in a limited weight-bearing environment and the adjustable floor allows the therapist to gradually increase weight-bearing activities to provide a smooth transition to land.
The PT 500 physical therapy pool circulates up to 30,000 gallons of laminar water flow per minute (113,562 lpm) - creating a wall of water with over 99 water speeds. The SwimEx pool counter current creates an ideal environment for strength training and functional activities during all phases of the rehabilitation program.
Add the optional integrated motorized treadmill to further enhance the versatility of the PT 500. Removable aquatic exercise equipment (including the SPT Underwater Treadmill) is also available. The PT 500 can also be used for swimming-in-place.
