Athletics Magazine Features Water Treadmill Research

The Athletic Business magazine has posted on its website a Bangor Daily News article about University of Maine men’s hockey players participating in a research project with exercise science students to determine the cardiovascular effects and energy expenditure of an underwater treadmill being used for rehabilitating injured athletes. The research established for the first time how an underwater treadmill can be an effective, low-impact method for people recovering from lower extremity injuries to maintain conditioning and cardiovascular fitness.
