Comfortable, easy to apply. Molds around varied body shapes. Used while on stomach, back or side. Mostly used in combination with neck float to ensure a horizontal position in the water. Can also be sat on for balance and stability activities and leg exercises. During most static exercises it is not necessary to do up the clip - in fact the patient will be more stable with the clip undone. The Child size aquatic hip float generally fits swimmers up to the age of 8 or 9 years old. Latex free. See About Us pages for care of this float.
