HYDROTHERAPY

The application of water as a therapeutic agent constitutes one of the main components in the field of rehabilitation. Exercising in water, also known as hydrotherapy, is based on the water principles and properties which include buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, water resistance and temperature.

The application of water as a therapeutic agent constitutes one of the main components in the field of rehabilitation. Exercising in water, also known as hydrotherapy, is based on the water principles and properties which include buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, water resistance and temperature. The Euromedica-Lydia Rehabilitation Center has two indoor swimming pools, controlled by modern systems that ensure chlorination, water quality and ozonation at safe levels, creating an excellent recovery environment. In conjunction with the special equipment, which includes electric cranes, a water-resistant water track and special wheelchairs for entry in and exit of the pool, hydrotherapy comprises a high standard model of the recovery and rehabilitation protocols in Greece. The outpatient pool offers a surfacing pool bottom floor, which allows adjustment of the water level according to each patient. The inpatient pool features special hydromassage equipment as well as an air blower, thus creating the beneficial effects that patients require.

  • Neurological conditions, such as strokes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Postoperative conditions
  • Injuries of high-level athletes as well as prevention of certain injuries resulting from high training loads.
AQUACISER III

AQUACISER III

The Aquaciser ΙΙΙ water track system, implemented by the American Hundson company, constitutes the latest, advanced development in hydrotherapy. It consists of an exercise chamber, a water tank and a control console. The temperature and depth of water along with the direction and speed of the water track can be used in low intensity, high strength exercises, helping patients regain confidence and balance in all movements.

The Aquaciser III is designed to provide hydrotherapy in combination with aerobic exercise, providing a high strength and endurance program. It is aimed at patients who require alternative therapeutic exercise plans, such as aquatic therapy, wherein the physical properties of water can reduce swelling and pressure in the joints.

  • The water track system offers numerous additional benefits such as
  • Controlled and Quick Recovery
  • Effective exercise protocols for patients with arthritis, chronic pain and problems caused by weight loss.

Rehabilitation Bathtubs

Rehabilitation Bathtubs

Hydrotherapy also includes two whirlpool tubs and two rehabilitation tubs.

  • Bathtub with galvanic electrical currents and hydromassage.
  • Hydrotherapy bathtub.

HYDROTHERAPY BATHTUB WITH GALVANIC ELECTRICAL CURRENTS AND HYDROMASSAGE

The hydrotherapy equipment also includes whirlpool bathtubs and therapeutic bathtubs.

The electrotherapy bathtub is designed to produce galvanic electrical current in the water with safe and proper equipment:

  • preventing or delaying atrophy
  • maintaining or increasing the range of motion,
  • the elasticity of muscle fibers,
  • the retraining and memory of the muscles,
  • the dissolution of muscle spasms (where they occur),
  • the increase of blood flow in the region,
  • the mental encouragement of the patient.
