ADAPTOR FOR POOL LIFT
--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with spinal cord injury to transfer to a pool. An existing pool lift required an adaptor in order to use a spreader from an indoor lift. The spreader supports the transfer sling used to lower the individual into the pool. The adaptor was made from stainless steel wire and two thimbles purchased from a ship's chandlery. The wire was looped around the thimbles and long-handled tongs were used to crimp a metal loop around each pair of wires. TITLE: Helpful Adaptations. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
