Controlling water quality in hydrotherapy centres

Part of the £105m St George’s Park facility home to England’s 24 national teams Perform, the sports medicine, rehabilitation and human performance facility is leading the way in sports science.

The centre utilises aquatic therapies to help their clients improve their rehabilitation and recovery rates.

Aquatic physiotherapy can help relieve pain, mobilise joints, develop balance and co-ordination, strengthen muscles and promote relaxation.

The Hydrotherapy Suite at St George’s Park contains an underwater treadmill, a variable depth pool and two contrast pools to assist with rehabilitation and recovery.

The Hydrotherapy Suite is open to sports clubs, individual athletes and schools, as well as private clients and patients as part of their physiotherapy treatment programme. PFA players use the hydrotherapy suite as part of their intensive rehabilitation, and the centre is currently serving as a Rugby World Cup base for Ireland and Argentina.

The Pooltest 9 Photometer from Palintest is used at the centre in order to control the treatment of the water in the hydrotherapy suite.

The Pooltest 9 provides a simple test protocol for carrying out accurate tests on parameters which are critical to the correct functioning of swimming pools and spas.

The instrument can be supplied in a range of kit configurations to suit the application and now features Bluetooth connectivity allowing for seamless management of data. Combined with the Palintest AquaPal app, Palintest’s Pooltest Photometers are the ideal solution for professional pool and spa management.
