EWAC Medical does not only supply butterfly baths (formerly known as "Hubbard Tanks"), but it also contributes actively in acquiring and dispersing knowledge about hydrotherapy. We are also actively involved in developing new underwater exercise equipment for rehabilitation purposes. On this page you will find more in-depth information about all the aspects involved in using a butterfly bath in rehabilitation.
The EWAC butterfly bath is the next generation of a treatment bath, formerly known as "Hubbard Tank". It is an ergonomically designed full immersion tank, manufactured out of stainless steel AISI 316. The butterfly bath can be equipped with a powerful underwater massage unit. The massage pump is fitted underneath the bath and the underwater jet can be controlled with a pressure regulator and manometer. The size of the nozzle of the underwater stream massage hose can be chosen out of the six different dimensions.
This underwater massage unit meets the highest demands and is therefore CE-MDD approved. The butterfly bath can also be equipped with an aquacontrol unit. The aquacontrol unit features a complete water treatment plant, consisting of a cartridge filter, heater and disinfection unit.
The bath is equipped with a tap for cold and warm water, as well as a handheld showerhead with cold en warm water taps. The bath is equipped with an overflow and drain. The bath itself stands on four adjustable legs. The butterfly bath can be equipped with several accessories, such as a headrest, hand rails, stretcher, two-steps entrance step, a cover sheet and a chest support.
The chest support is especially designed to improve the ergonomic working position of the therapist. The bath can used in combination with mobile patient lifters with a lift height of 1000 mm. Installing a ceiling lift is preferable. A ceiling lift ensures optimal use of all the accessories, and in this way EWAC Medical has created a user-friendly environment for patient and therapists.
|Headrest||The patient can comfortably rest their head while the rest of the body takes the most comfortable position provided by the buoyancy.|
The chest support can be used to support the therapist’s torso during treatment of the patient. This chest support decreases the load on the lower back of the therapist. During the treatment the therapist can bend forward in a comfortable position for a longer period of time.
|Underwater massage||This unit can be used by the therapist to apply underwater massage to the patient.|
An Aquacontrol is a small appliance for water treatment. A small cartridge filter is used to filter the water and at the same time the water is heated and disinfected. The EWAC Medical water treatment installation meets the highest demands in the area of water safety according to WHBVZ/Vlarem and DIN 19643.
