Water is the ideal element for a number of activities that support the improvement of health and lifestyle for people of all ages. What if the beach or the pool are not an option anymore? For many people with disabilities or the elderly water is an ideal way to relax, mostly because it provides a sense of freedom but also because water eliminates the effects of gravity on the body and gives lightness of movement. However, the ability to enjoy the pleasure of swimming is not the same for everyone. Those with special needs have to overcome many obstacles when trying to get into the water.
People with disabilities use water for their exercise as it helps them with many types of movement. This is known as hydrotherapy or water therapy. Therapists prescribe hydrotherapy for treating pain and for rehabilitation – it gives freedom and ease of motion.
For many people it can be impossible to access pools or spas without using hoists. Pool hoists are the simplest and most advantageous solution for access to any swimming pool without complicated construction work. The market offers different types of hoists, depending on people’s level of disability.
