    Pool Lifts

    Ok guys, I didn't want to take away from Adi's thread, but I have a question for everyone who goes swimming. What kind of pool lift do you use? I would go swimming more often, but the lift at the gym's pool is fairly unstable for transfers, and I'm not comfortable in going alone since I have fallen off of it twice. So, I can only go when my friend can which is not very often. Not only is the lift unstable (moves a lot while trying to transfer) it has a tall lip on the side of it that's nearly impossible to go over without getting a wedgie.

    Any suggestions? I would like to find something better, and then give it to my gym as a suggestion for improvement.

    TIA

    I've had this one for a few years with no problems.

    I need to get a pool lift as soon as I can swim again, I'm fearful now of screwing up my body more swimming without a lift.

    You can see a pretty good range of what is available here:

    Thanks guys! DougM-does your lift shift from side to side as your are transfering onto/out of it? You lift looks very similar to the one my gym has and that is a huge problem with it.

    No, it's pretty stable for transfers, It wiggles a little, but not enough that I've even thought about it until you asked. Maybe they have low water pressure? There's a pin that can be inserted also which locks it in place.

    It's pretty safe I think and as a para I can use it without assistance.
