Hydrotherapy system was invented by Roy Jacuzzi in 1968. The first bathtub model equipped with water jets and the pump was able to produce 1/2-to-1/2 water to air ratio and created a revolution in the field of bathroom remodeling. The pump motor was circulating the water and releasing it through water jets, allowing bathers to feel a spa-like experience in the comfort of their own homes.
Since then, the hydrotherapy technology has evolved into a separate industry. Today, many vendors offer different accessories and configurations of water therapy systems for all kinds of bathtubs, including walk-in bathtubs.
MediTub engineers have invested a considerable amount of time and effort into finding highest-quality hydrotherapy components that can be installed into walk-in bathtubs.
Walk-in bathtubs are larger than traditionally-sized bathtubs and require more reliable components. Average volume of a walk-in bathtub varies from 70-85 gallons, creating a noticeable amount of pressure in the water circulation system. MediTub professionals were able to design a hydrotherapy system that is able to sustain the large volume of water pressure and function without any interruptions.
Components of a hydrotherapy system include:
A water pump with controllable air supply speed Hydro Jets with optional pressure and direction adjustment Suction controls for water circulation.
