The Underwater Treadmill Project
Underwater treadmill training (UTT) is an emerging treatment method incorporating aerobic and strength training to aid patients with injuries or mobility issues.
Recuperating from serious injuries, these patients are often unable to walk on the ground or experience severe pain doing so.
UTT is considered a safe and comprehensive alternative compared to other conventional rehabilitation techniques, leveraging the physical properties of water to help patients regain their mobility.
To ensure the highest level of care at Sheba and continue providing patients worldwide ‘Hope Without Boundaries,’
we need your help!
The purchase and installation of two new underwater treadmill systems is planned, each including an adjustable mounting platform,
a video recording system, light fixtures, a counter-current system, and mechanical lifting equipment.
The Hydrotherapy Center at Sheba Rehabilitation Hospital is the biggest of its kind in Israel, with hundreds of patients treated each month for a wide variety of medical conditions. Serving patients from Israel and across the globe, the center’s clinical team has identified a critical deficiency that hampers its therapeutic activities:
the lack of underwater treadmills.
The Canadian Friends of Sheba Medical Center is a registered charity based in Toronto committed to supporting the vital work of Sheba Medical Center, a global healthcare leader and the largest, most comprehensive hospital in Israel as well as the Middle East.
In addition to raising awareness and philanthropic support for Sheba’s humanitarian initiatives, compassionate care, cutting-edge research, and medical education activities, we are proud to serve as the medical center’s Canadian ambassador, helping foster collaborations that serve the people of Canada, Israel, and the world.
It has been a privilege to contribute to Sheba’s transformative global efforts, and with your help, we will continue doing so for the benefit of patients everywhere.
