Aquafit Body Sling For Larger-Sized Adults

SKU: 9875HA Category:

This Body Sling has generous proportions and is suitable for larger sized adults. It is very stable, slightly longer than the standard adult sized Body Sling (9875A), has a wider sling and handles for greater manoeuvrability.

A great tool for aquatic therapists working with larger swimmers with a more severe disability. The swimmer lays supine within the Body Sling while suspended in the water.

The Body Sling enables the therapist to carry out stretches and active exercises on their lower limbs eg: torpedo exercises – a great favourite – are an excellent leg strengthening exercise requiring the swimmer to push themselves off a pool wall.

Handles on the underside of the  Body Sling enable a support person to hold onto the sling under the swimmer’s shoulder blades – without getting hand or arm fatigue. The handles also allow the swimmer to be moved around the pool while inside the Body Sling.

The larger sized Body Slings (SKU 9875HAXL and SKU 9875HAB)  have two sets of handles – one pair used by a support person and the other pair used by the therapist during passive and active exercises.

These larger Body Slings provide excellent lateral support, comfort and buoyancy and can be used in combination with a neck collar with press studs (SKU 9401PA and SKU 9401PAB) which supports the head and neck.

Made from a polyester weave fabric and polystyrene beads.
