The two standard Deep Well Stations provided by Galaxy Aquatics are a 5 ft. deep well with running platform and a 6 Ft. Deep Well. The six-foot Deep Well Station is designed to fully unload the spine and lower extremities in open chain positions to maximize ROM and strengthening for neurological and non-weight bearing orthopedic protocols. The five-foot deep well is a treatment area for both upper and lower extremities in open and closed chain treatments and conditioning. The five-foot Deep Well includes a Running Platform that is a 45 degree angled platform.
When combined with the TheraFlow Propulsion System it creates a treadmill simulator. This combination simulates progressive hip and knee mechanisms encountered with quick start and linear acceleration activities. Due to the deep wells five-foot depth, this station is also designed to unload the lower extremities and spine in closed chain postures during early rehab for orthopedic and neurological conditions. As the patient progresses, early plyometric training can be reintroduced into their care.
The 5 ft. and 6 ft. Deep Wells allow the clinician to progess their patients from a weightless environment in the six-foot well through the five-foot well to the four-foot depth. The increase in load bearing throughout a patients rehab is one of the keys to successful rehabilitation. Custom Deep Well Stations are available in 7 ft. and 8 ft. depths if necessary for sports applications.
