For the aquatic professional:The severely disabled require individual attention and specific handling skill when in the aquatic therapy pool. The Aquafit Square Float allows for maximum support and decreases the need for maximum hold when doing many neurological and therapeutic exercises in the water. The Aquafit Square Float is particularly suited to heavily disabled patients with ataxic and athetoid movement as it provides greater support and in some situations increased independence (under supervision). Spinal mobilizations for the wheelchair bound patient are also possible in the Aquafit Square Float as it allows for all body shapes to be supported.
The Aquafit Neck Collar combined with the Aquafit Square Float, Aquafit Pelvic Float (with ties) and Aquafit Sausage Float can be worked to any combination depending on body shape and muscle tone of the patient. Floats may be removed (eg:.hip and sausage) to allow for the stretching and ranging of lower limbs or alternatively, may be added (eg. extra hip floats) to cater for very dense or brittle bone patients.
In summary the Aquafit Square Float is excellent for increasing stability for certain physiotherapy techniques and allows for a wide variety of positions and body types.
The Aquafit range of floats has been specifically designed for aquatic therapy and exercise. These floats are to be used under the supervision of a qualified professional. Aquafit floats are not to be regarded as a life preserver
