Here, at Aquatic Rehabilitation Center we use special self-propelled mechanical exercise tables to help patients with limited mobility and reduced Range of Motion to treat their conditions. People with limited mobility, those rehabilitating after surgery, and those undergoing cardiac rehabilitation benefit the most from this unique equipment. We are very proud to offer this unique and useful type of equipment at our facility.Back
