For people with disabilities, swimming time can offer a number of benefits. Whether water therapy, general exercise, or just daily rest, entering the water improves physical and mental health.
However, some injuries can make many swimming tasks difficult. As a result, there is a law requiring most public swimming pools to be accessible to persons with disabilities. To make your public pool accessible you can also take help from swimming pool access for disabled.
With the exception of the sling lift, a water wheelchair must be carried with every entry and exit. In addition, lift loops are not acceptable as entrances or exits for pools.
Zero depth recognition
To meet the standard, zero-depth entrances must have handrails, a non-slip surface, the same level on the top and bottom.
Slinger style pool lift
Loop-style lifters must have a flat, clean and non-slip surface. In addition, they should be placed in a place where the water is not deeper than 1.3 meters and the water edge is at least 450 millimeters. They must also be operable on the water, in the pool, and on the sling.
Like loop lifts, platform lifts must be able to be used outside the pool, on the platform, and in the water.
Whether movable or immovable, ramps must be non-slip and have appropriate railings, platforms, and walkways.
