Equine Aquatic Treadmill Excellence!
The Aqua Treadmill is an above-ground, compact aquatic treadmill designed for long-term reliable operation. Its smooth surfaces and user friendly controls, provide a safe working environment for both operator and animal. Clear wall panels surround the treadmill to provide a spacious, bright and open environment for animal comfort and allows the operator full visual overseeing during exercise.
Conditioning, Rehabilitation and Strengthening
The Aqua Treadmill utilizes the natural properties of water – buoyancy, resistance and temperature. Although aquatic exercise is practiced extensively to assist equine athletes achieve peak performance and rehabilitation from injury, The Aqua Treadmill provides a compact and efficient way to achieve positive results.
Deep Water Capacity
The Aqua Treadmill’s unique structural design enables an impressive 1300mm (51 inches) water depth, providing full buoyancy for even the largest of animals reducing overall weight off lower legs by as much as 90% during exercise – LOW IMPACT EXERCISE.
Fast Fill and Fast Empty hydro-pumps ensure efficient use of time throughout session – water depth adjustment can be made at anytime during use.
Chilled Salt Water
Engineered from 316 Stainless Steel (marine grade) the the Aqua Treadmill can operate with high concentrate Salt Water and equipped with our Titanium heat exchanger & chiller unit enables a water temperature down as low as 2.0 degrees celsius (35.6 F).
Extensive research shows chilled salt water treatment can be used for many lower leg injuries by primarily reducing inflammation and removing fluid build-up (this build-up causes painful swelling around the injury). The hydrostatic pressure assists with blood circulation around the injury and swelling reduction.
Chilled salt water assists in the treatment of: Tendonitis, Arthritis, Desmitis, Hoof injuries, Jar Up, Bursitis/Synovitis, swelling, open wounds and skin infections. The regular use of chilled salt water therapy immediately following exercise, reduces many of the stresses within tissue well before inflammation develops.
All water in the the Aqua Treadmill system is Re-Cycled. Water is stored and filtered in the storage tank ready for transfer into the the Aqua Treadmill vessel for use. Following use the water is then transferred back into the storage tank.
Quiet, Smooth, Powerful Motion
A high performance, variable speed treadmill (conveyor) is driven by an industrial grade electric motor / gearbox / Variable Frequency Drive that provides an effortless speed range from 0.07 Kph to 17.0 Kph (0.43Mph–10.5Mph) controlled via a 256 Colour Touch Screen Control. The treadmill can be operated WET or DRY.
Shock Absorbing Incline
The conveyor deck is shock absorbing providing additional comfort and safety for the animal – this is also the case when the The Aqua Treadmill is in the Incline position of up to 7 degrees.
Australian made and all parts are available here in Australia. We offer 2 years – year 1 parts & labour and year 2 parts only – excluding consumables such as belt, filters.
We can supply the system complete with Variable Speed Treadmill (speed range up to 16kph), water chiller, power-incline, salt water chlorination system, clear side viewing panels and Touch screen control panel for $165,000 plus GST. This price includes freight, positioning and assembly at prepared site. The equipment – pumps, water chiller etc.. will require protection from the elements, this can be a simple lean-to to keep sun and rain off equipment as this will extend the life expectancy of motors / equipment considerably.
If you require spa system – water jets located low in treadmill booth to introduce water / air mix then this would add $1,600 plus GST to the price.
We require a 50% deposit with order. We would visit site then generate a drawing showing the proposed positioning of the treadmill, equipment skid and storage tank for your approval. We would then require approximately 12-14 weeks to manufacture the system. Installation at site takes approximately 3– 4 days.
This same system (just a standard water treadmill) without the salt chiller spa (pictured) component is $135,000 + GST
Just a dry treadmill (no water involved) is $65,000 + GST.
We have sold to several Australian trainers, the Prince of Qatar and the Kings daughter (Dubai). Please contact us to discuss.
