Summary: This project required the design of a therapeutic pool for the specific
purpose of patient recovery from debilitating injuries.
The pool has a shallow end entry for wheel chair restricted
patients. A shallow end area also has a constant depth area for an
assortment of lower body rehabilitation exercises. A lap lane allows for
endurance exercising and general muscle reconditioning.
A twelve foot long 5 seat therapeutic underwater bench for smaller
adults and children has a series of adjustable therapy whirlpool jets used
for localized body therapy. The pool also has a second set of therapeutic
bench seats for adults. The
other portion of the pool floor slopes from 3 ½
to 6 feet to allow for
other deep water therapeutic activities.
The TruRimTM adjustable stainless steel gutter was
designed with a special sure grip
hand hold to help stabilize patients, while exercising.
The water sanitization system utilizes ultra violet light to
disinfect the water. This process eliminates the use of other halogens
which can produce both odors and irritation to sensitive skin.
