Swimming aid

Swimming aidAdam is blind and has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus. However, he loves swimming, but he needs a flotation device which will keep him upright and stable and which can be adjusted as he grows.

The device shown in the photograph was made using polystyrene for the floats, connected by neoprene tape, clamped to the floats by aluminium plates. The girth is adjustable and is secured by Velcro tapes.

Adam now enjoys swimming even more.

    Good day,,

    Looking for a swimming device to protect my mom while swimming. She had a stroke and her left hand is immobile. Would like to put her in our pool for exercise.
