    3 tips for safely using an Aquatic Wheelchair

    1. Positioning is paramount to optimise buoyancy and stability. The user should be carefully seated to ensure even weight distribution and should maintain a balanced and centred posture while in the water to assist with stability.
    2. It is vital that a carer or lifeguard is within arm’s reach in case difficulties arise during transfer or while in the pool.
    3. When at a public aquatic centre it is important to stay within the designated aquatic areas and obey all facility rules.
