Theraquatics CP Float Suit

SKU: 9503 Category:

Theraquatics Cerebral Palsy Float Suit – Standard
Designed for swimmers with significant physical and neurological disabilities.

The CP Float Suit maintains the swimmer in a horizontal position on their back while in the water.

The design of the head piece prevents the body from leaning and rolling to one side or the other. The head piece also prevents the head from being thrust back into the water, or forwards as happens with sudden involuntary reflexes.

The positioning of closed cell foam within the CP Float Suit is designed to compensate for uneven weight distribution as may occur in swimmers with more severe physical or neurological disabilities.

A smooth PVC sleeve with gusset sewn around the neck make the CP Float Suit comfortable to wear. It has an adjustable belt around the waist with a quick release buckle. It is strapped securely onto the body. A swimmer cannot slip out of the CP Float Suit.

The CP Float Suit can grow with the swimmer. Special features on the CP Float Suit enable it to lengthen over a period of time.

For the carer who might enjoy swimming alongside their charge, the CP Float Suit is the answer. The CP Float Suit supports the head and neck from behind and the sides. Since it is secured onto the body, the CP Float Suit reassures the more anxious swimmer.

Our CP Float Suits are suitable for both adults and children.

Useful in special needs aquatic programs or in paediatric water therapy activities.

The Hi- Support Cerebral Palsy Float Suit (SKU 9503H) has additional features to the Standard Cerebral Palsy Float Suit (SKU 9503S).

The Hi- Support Float Suit (SKU 9503H) has extra layers of foam in the head piece as it is intended for swimmers who often have reflexes that make them arch their head backwards into the water . The head piece on the Hi -Support version makes it very difficult to push the head under the water due to the surface area of the head piece and the extra thickness of the foam. So if you are purchasing for a swimmer who is strong and has a tendency to throw their head backwards into the water, Theraquatics suggests the Hi-Support Float Suit.

If your swimmer has a larger than average sized neck, we can modify the jacket and make a larger neck hole.

When ordering your CP Float Suit:

  1. Include a measurement of the distance between the collar bone and mid-groin of your swimmer – we will email you a photo on how to place the tape measure on your swimmer.
    2. Please provide us with a contact telephone number in case we need to get a few finer details about the swimmer.
    3. Bear in mind that all Float Suits are tailor-made to order. Once correct measurements are provided to Theraquatics, the turnaround time is normally around 3 weeks. If you need it sooner, please contact us directly before placing your order and we will do our best to have the suit ready for you.
