Aquafit Square Float with Seat

SKU: 9396 Category:

A generously proportioned, supportive float for swimmers with poor head, arm and leg control and who need extra support around the trunk. A secure, stable and adjustable seat attaches to the float. The seat allows for vertical and forward positioning inside the float. The float also allows for the swimmer to rest back into it, to kick and splash freely while supported in comfort. Alternatively the high, wide sides offer great support for swimmers who tend to lean, arch, stiffen or extend while in the water. Also a great float for swimmers who are peg fed or who have a trach.

The use of supplementary floats:

For swimmers who have poor head and neck control, it may be necessary to provide additional support with neck floats (SKU9401),swim rings,(SKU9397) or upright floats (SKU 9501 and SKU 9501T)

In our video below, Terrell has big head movements where his body frequently moves from arching backwards to curling forward. We found that a combination of the Square Float with Saddle (item 9397S) and Inflatable Swim Ring (item 7187) provided additional all-round support, and when a pair of wrist weights were added to his ankles, Terrell was able to maintain an upright body position.

Chrysoula, our swimmer in pink (photo below) has a tracheotomy. Her aquatic therapist says that the square float with saddle is the best float available in the market, to protect her tracheotomy.

Henry’s mum telling TQ about Henry using the Square Float with Saddle (Item 9396XS) for the first time: “He had an absolute ball and did not want to get out. He was such a water boy before he ended up like this so it gives us great joy to see him enjoying the water again. His little legs didn't stop kicking. Thank you so much it is truly wonderful for him”.
(Henry is a ventilated quadriplegic).
