Numerous recent studies have verified the benefits aquatic therapy can provide for older adults. Exercising in a pool has been shown to be a low-impact way to improve circulation, muscle strength, and balance. It can also ease arthritic pain, lower blood pressure, and reduce stress levels. It’s little wonder so many Marquette seniors have made visits to their local pool part of their weekly or even daily routines. Of course, for those with limited mobility, getting to and from the pool may require the use of a wheelchair. This could pose a problem for those who don’t want to expose their chairs to possible water damage. At the Barrier Free Store, we offer pool wheelchairs that are lightweight, durable, and completely waterproof.
Our pool wheelchairs are manufactured by Integrity Custom Concepts, one of the most respected manufactures of specialized mobility solutions in the nation. Engineered to provide years of reliable performance, Integrity pool wheelchairs feature:
You’ll be able to customize your pool wheelchair with a number of options such as hand breaks, padded headrests, and a plethora of stylish mesh colors. And for added support and comfort in the pool, we also sell floating pool platforms. Essentially buoyant benches that maintain a constant depth, these devices – complete with backrests and handrails – provide a stable platform for swimmers with limited use of their legs, allowing them to sit safely and comfortably in the water without the need for awkward or bulky vests. And if your day of water fun includes a trip to the lake, we also sell a wide variety of stylish and practical beach wheelchairs.
To learn more about the premium pool wheelchairs and platforms we offer, contact the Barrier Free Store and speak with one of our friendly representatives. You can also schedule a complimentary accessibility assessment at your home in Marquette.
