For more than 35 years, Aquatic Access has designed and manufactured nonelectric lifts for in-ground and above-ground pools, tubs and spas. Powered only by water pressure from a hose to a faucet, standard lifts have a weight capacity of 300 pounds to 400 pounds, depending on the model. Some units are self-operable and some require an assistant to turn the seat. Headrests, footrests and seat belts are offered as accessories. Custom designs are available to meet your customers’ needs. No batteries, charging, replacement batteries or complex maintenance schedules required. Visit aquaticaccess.com.
The Buckingham Glideboard transfer board is lightweight, simple to use and has a gliding seat that limits the risk of injury to both the patient and carer. The design reduces the effort required to transfer from wheelchair to chair, car or bed by more than 30% for the patient and even more for the caregiver. The shape enables the board to be used in multiple directions and the gliding seat reduces both skin sheer and friction. Visit buckinghamhealthcare.com.
