    2. Grab onto a handle on a hoist to lift yourself up onto the diving board (or whatever other platform).


    $99.99 for this hoist. You'd have to install a frame for it.

    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Instead of a diving board how about a slide and sling powered by the hoist?

    My brother built one, similar to the lift for my van, using the hoist from Harbor Freight. The arm rotated on a steel column and I used a sling, it was super trick. Do worry about the electric, just make sure it's a GFCI protected dedicated circuit. You could have a welder put it together for not too much $$$$ I used it quite a bit about 20 years ago...never failed. I'm not here often, text if you want more info.
