For the DNRC Loughborough in England, the Variopool group have installed a movable floor in the therapy pool of this institution. A movable floor that is height-adjustable has many great advantages for hydrotherapy. This is the name for treatments in the water. The therapist can now determine the height of the floor and work more easily with the patient. Another advantage is that a patient can now easily be get into the water by putting the movable floor all the way to the water surface level. The other option could be by doing this with a special disabled person lift.
