Pool Aid


TOM @ Uni




Jack and his physiotherapist would like a solution to support his body in the water independently. Jack has a regular exercise routine at the pool to maintain his mobility. Currently, Jack is supported by his exercise therapist to float in an upright position, which limits the range of exercises he can do safely.


Jack's teams have created a two-part system so that he can independently float upright. Team 'Lasercutterz' created a pillow with inbuilt neck support and an anchor system that ensures Jack remains secure while floating on his back.
Team 'Double Destiny Design' developed a customised wetsuit which has several pockets for foam, helping to stabilise Jack in the water. The large zips make it easy to put on the suit. These solutions combine to form a unified system for Jack.
