Make Swimming Fun With Aquatic Therapy Equipment!

Mobile Aquatic Chair

Pool facilities that have a ramp, zero-depth entry or moveable floor need mobile aquatic chairs to stabilize patients and transport them in and out of the water.

One of the leading Mobile Aquatic Chairs, however, is by SR Smith. This chair can support up to 300 pounds and has a stainless steel frame to prevent corrosion over time. 

Another great option is the Stainless Steel Aquatic Wheelchair by Aqua Creek. This sturdy chair can support up to 600 pounds and an expandable chair width. 

Moreover, it’s collapsible for easy storage. Last but not least, the Aqua Creek Pool Access Chair is a more affordable option as it’s made of plastic and stainless steel. It can support up to 425 pounds.

Pool Lift

If your pool does not have a ramp to lead patients into the pool, a pool lift may be a better option. Pool lifts essentially are seats that lower individuals in the pool and raise them out again. The American Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that all public pools must have a pool lift. Therefore, it’s important that when purchasing a pool lift, you make sure it is ADA compliant.

Cycle Attachment

One cool thing about pool lifts is you can buy cycle attachments for them. Essentially, this attachment quickly converts your lift into a pool therapy bike. This is a great option for patients who have a hard time getting in and out of the chair once in the water because they can enjoy hydrotherapy without ever leaving the chair!

One of the best options for purchase is the Aqua Creek Cycle Attachment. It only weighs 20 pounds and can be easily attached to any pool lift. 

Pool Bike

Pool bikes are great for low-impact physical therapy. Therefore, they are a must-have for any rehab facility and a great addition to gyms. 

One of the best options for purchase is the Tidal Pool Bike. This bike comes in two options: with a sport seat or with a recumbent seat. Both versions have a unique flywheel and folding V-frame design, multiple resistance levels, and adjustable parts. The sport seat is similar to that of a typical bicycle. The recumbent seat option, on the other hand, has a backrest and seat handles for added support and security in rehabilitation.
