NFL stars Terrell Owens and Carson Palmer used the HydroWorx pool after injuries sidelined them. Owens, who was expected to be out for several weeks and also miss the Super Bowl, credits the HydroWorx pool with speeding his recovery and allowing him to play in the biggest game of his career. Aquatic therapy helps athletes start the rehab process almost immediately because water lets them workout in a non-weight bearing environment.

Clinical studies have shown that patients improved their overall health and fitness in the HydroWorx pool without the joint trauma and “wear and tear” of working out on land. 4 out of 5 subjects said they preferred exercising in the HydroWorx pool rather than on a land treadmill.
