What is it?

Hydrotherapy patient belt to allow moving and handling assistance within a pool environment.

The hydrotherapy aqua belt is used in a similar fashion to a patient belt; as grabbing a patient or end user under the arm or by the shoulders, head or neck in a wet environment in order to prevent, brace or move a patient/end user could result in many different scenarios not least damaging to the patient and carer.

Using a neoprene belt will allow the caregiver to use the aqua belt to move the patient/end user towards them without putting excess strain onto limbs or damaging skin, allowing for a more controlled movement through water.

Should also be used in any situation where end users could be a fall risk in a wet environment such as a shower, hot tub, swimming pool etc. Using the belt in the same way as a patient belt will give the caregiver(s) the ability to lower the end user to the ground in a controlled safe way.

This belt is often used along with various flotation devices and is an essential part of a hydrotherapists’, rehabilitation and physiotherapist’s safety kit.

A belt of this nature is NOT a transfer belt and if a scenario requires a user to be lifted to or from the water a specific poolside/wet environment chair hoist/lift should be used. Any lifting device should have been installed and a full assessment carried out before use.

The patient must be able to support their own weight. Not to be used as a standing or lifting aid.

Bathing Cradle Review

Hi Andrew

We have had a really exciting day today: our pupil has tried the Shower Cradle in the pool and it is absolutely amazing!! We set it up this morning with the rolls and headrest ect and the pupil has just been in the water independently for the first time with the TA beside and not needing to hold on to support at all.

we have shown it to lots of staff and will now start assessing other pupils to see how many more would benefit from using the cradle. it is so adaptable with the adjustable mesh/tilt feature and the different loops to hoist it into the water and it will make such a difference to our less mobile pupils.

Parent of Blind 10yo Child

“Being 10yrs old, blind unable to talk or walk would be enough to moan about for most…yet our daughter didn’t moan…until we got the Durance Junior chair.!!

She loves it so much that unless we get her out of her wheelchair, after school or hospital trips and into her comfy Durance Junior she wont stop moaning…she loves it.

Great personalised service were the customers needs are put first…Many other companies would do well to learn from Andrew at ambre-stone”

Many thanks.  Sorry I cannot share this photo with you but take it from me she looks fab.

Good job!
