I want to let you know how much I enjoy having the Super Swim at our Therapeutic Pool.
In the 4½ years we’ve been open, I’ve found that it is one of the best pieces of equipment suitable for my return-to-work, rotator cuff, arthritis, and stroke clients. Not only does it work on improving their overall activity endurance, but we can focus on precise upper extremity movement patterns to increase the patient’s active range of motion.
I have also used it with a Guillian-Barré Syndrome patient. This neurological disease left her with partial paralysis of all four extremities. She was able to maintain an upright, non-weightbearing position for 15 minutes while moving her arms and legs against the resistance of the water! Her activity level, flexibility, and most importantly, her self-esteem all improved dramatically – and she is a non-swimmer afraid of the water.
Thank you again for making this great piece of equipment available to our facility and our patients. I believe so strongly in what Super Swim has to offer that I am purchasing the system for my pool at home!
