With the weather warming up, it’s time to start thinking about making your home pool more accessible – when you’re not dreaming about that next accessible holiday to somewhere fabulous, that is!
Enjoying time in a pool can be beneficial for so many reasons: a vigorous workout, some gentle hydrotherapy, relaxation, or enjoying quality social time with family and friends. The Para Mobility team is passionate about creating experiences that enable lives.
They specialise in delivering functional, dependable, aesthetically-pleasing (even rainbow coloured!) pool hoists. Para Mobility pool hoists can be found in thousands of locations across Australia and New Zealand.
What are the benefits of a home pool hoist?
Swimming creates opportunities for social participation, enables mobility, provides cardiovascular exercise, stimulates muscle tones, and promotes blood circulation. Plus, it’s fun, and that’s good for everyone!
Being able to access your pool at home will improve confidence and fitness, as well as providing a nearby source of calm and relaxation.
Home Pool Hoists: Things To Consider
Not all home pool hoists are created equal. Quality, safety, and adaptability are key!
Make sure the pool hoist is:
- Built for longevity – this will get you value for money!
- Made from Marine Grade stainless steel, so it’s tough enough for Australian conditions
- Built and tested to Australian Standards (AS 3581 AS 2569 AS/ANZ ISO 10525:2011)
- Compliant with the Building Code of Australia DDA Disability Discrimination Act (Access to Premises Standards)
Check the experience the provider has before making your decision. Will you have an opportunity to trial the hoist in a public place before installing it in your home?
