Oasis Underwater Treadmill Complete with automatic incline, jets for spa or for added endurance, and speed from 0.1mph to 9mph! Water has a natural property called ‘buoyancy’. The natural buoyancy of water assists in a low impact but high intensity work out. This is especially important in cases of patients in the ‘recovery’ mode. With adjustable water temperature and water level, the Oasis makes rehab, fitness training or weight control a relaxing and soothing experience.
