AQUATIC THERAPY POOL DESIGN


Therapy pools are widely used in the healthcare profession for pain relief, enhancing strength and flexibility, and improving balance. The buoyancy of the water makes it easier for the patients to move about and allows them to perform rehabilitative exercises without placing additional stress on joints. Users get the benefit of a gentle form of exercise that can significantly improve their overall quality of life. It is not necessary for the patient to know how to swim to enjoy the benefits of therapy pools.

Therapy pools are typically filled with warm water with a temperature ranging from 86-94°F, depending on the needs of the patient. Warm water facilitates muscle relaxation and improves circulation, while also helping to decrease the patient’s sensitivity to pain. Additionally, warm water enhances balance, trunk stability and body awareness.

THERAPY POOLS MUST BE DESIGNED TO MEET STRINGENT REQUIREMENTS

The requirements and standards of construction for therapy swimming pool design are unlike any other aquatic structure. Therapy pool designers must address the needs of a core group of guests, each of whom have diverse physical ailments such as osteoporosis, arthritis and chronic back pain. Using a company well versed in physical therapy pool design is essential for a smooth creation and construction process.
