Fitness, Conditioning. The AquaPacer Equine Underwater Treadmill
System was developed to help equine athletes achieve peak
performance. Whether rehabilitating an injury or preparing for the
performance of a lifetime, the Ferno AquaPacer is the answer!
Both veterinarians and trainers
have discovered the benefits of aquatic therapy. The AquaPacer
Underwater Treadmill System unites two powerful tools to achieve
accelerated conditioning: the natural properties of water and
hydrokinetic exercise in a user controlled environment. The natural
properties of water: buoyancy, high resistance, hydrostatic pressure
and its thermal effect have unparalleled therapeutic benefits that
have been utilized for centuries. Hydrokinetic exercise is
facilitated by using the horseís own natural movement on a non-slip,
solid surface treadmill.
The AquaPacer workout is
unparalleled for therapeutic healing and conditioning. Horses and
ponies are encouraged to use the same muscles, ligaments and tendons
that are employed in traditional land-based exercise but without the
stress and trauma.
Therapeutic sessions in the
AquaPacer can be fully customized to each horse or pony through
variable water heights, variable treadmill speeds and variable water
temperatures. The clear viewing panels on the front, back and side
allow the user to observe the horses movement as well as provide a
convenient walk-through for loading and unloading.
For early intervention, improved
performance and reduced rehabilitation time, the Ferno AquaPacer is
