The ability to vary with temperature, water level and speed makes the treadmill very suited for rehabilitation processes. Each horse can perform its own optimal rehabilitation programme, within a controlled and risk-free environment.
Water has a healing effect on horses. Hydromassage is done through intense jet streams which manipulate the muscles with a massage-effect. The warm water has a relaxing, soothing and calming effect.
The biggest advantage of swimming is the upward pressure which greatly reduces gravity. A swimming horse is obliged to use his whole body, without the body being subject to extreme hard labour. For these reasons, swimming is the optimal rehabilitation for your horse.
