Vertical Accessibility

The challenge of avoiding the orthopedic chair

Facilitating the entry and exit of the pool.

A pool lift?

A pool lift is a device to assist people with reduced mobility to enter and exit the water.

Currently, there are many aquatic therapies that take advantage of the change in gravity and the pressure received on joints and muscles to improve mobility and even help break the cycle of chronic pain.

Conceptualization and engineering

The project: New concept of hydraulic lift for swimming pools.
Starting from the basis of the chairlifts, make viable proposals for vertical access, designed for people with mobility problems or who want a more comfortable way to access the pool.
Constructed with materials and finishes resistant to weather and pool water, this project provides grip zones and a non-slip base. Easy and intuitive to use, it integrates perfectly into the environment of any type of pool, with fixed and mobile variants.

The work performed included:

• Conceptualization.
• Product design.
• 3D renderings
• Ergonomics
• User experience: people profiles
• Mechanical Engineering.

Developed entirely by the Barcelona team.

Several proposals for one and two hydraulic bars were presented, with one bar being chosen for further development. And that is where the mobile and fixed proposals came from. As well as a range of different finishes.
