The “Adaptive Hydrotherapy Wetsuit” is designed for people with limited mobility in particular paraplegic patients and the elderly. With its self-operating feature, only half of the physiotherapists previously required are needed for hydrotherapy. The current buoyant unit lacks flexibility and has poor contact with the patient in water. The Wetsuit improves stability and safety for the users and enhances rehabilitation experience.
