Designed for swimmers with significant physical and neurological disabilities.
The Cerebral Palsy (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 can not 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 would enjoy swimming alongside their charge, the CP Float Suit is an 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 of swimmers.
Our CP Float Suits are suitable for both adults and children.
Useful in special needs aquatic programs or in pediatric water therapy activities.
