AAT expands portfolio with new ‘game-changing’ supported bathing concept
Stairclimber and vacuum posture cushion specialist AAT has invented Aqua Liberty to “plug the gap” in supported bathing.
According to AAT, Aqua Liberty is the first, and only, bath system that comfortably enables the bather to be properly supported in the bath with minimal physical intervention from a carer. This means the bather can enjoy the hygienic and therapeutic benefits of being immersed in water.
Based around the company’s innovative vacuum posture cushion, Aqua Liberty precisely forms to the end-user, irrespective of physical and/or neurological conditions, stabilising their head, trunk and pelvis individually.
The system comprises a pioneering mechanism for securing the cushions in any bath. Secured into place with integrated suction cups, Aqua Liberty provides a stable, non-slip base during bathing that can be easily removed for other members of the household to use the bath.
“We strongly believe Aqua Liberty is a game-changer,” explains AAT Director Peter Wingrave. “We have a reputation for being the UK’s leader in innovative support for people with special needs, and Aqua Liberty is reinforces that heritage. It brings comfort, and independent stability to the bather, so they can truly relax and enjoy the experience.
“It removes the physical effort and contortion for carers in supporting their loved one in the bath. Bathtime becomes a pleasurable experience for everyone again!”
The assistive bathing solution was designed in conjunction with disabled people, carers and occupational therapists (OTs). There are a range of cushions available from AAT to suit a variety of end-users and baths.
In addition, Aqua Liberty provides a stable receiver for AAT’s innovative vacuum posture support cushions, which can be moulded to comfortably support the end-user without pressure points or rigid structures.
Offering a multi-purpose solution, AAT adds that the advanced neoprene covering of the cushions provide further sensory positive stimulation, whilst being waterproof, and wipe-clean to COVID-safe standards.
The cushions can be detached and air-dried quickly, enabling their use to deliver postural support in any chair, static or wheeled, as well as in the car.
