The PoolPod designed by PoolPodProducts is specifically engineered to help consumers with injuries or disabilities enter and exit pools seamlessly and without causing any strain on their bodies with a simple to use swimming aide pod. The device is a platform unit that offers an alternative mode of entrance into the water if a ladder isn't accessible by lowering consumers in via a systematic lift. The device widens the accessibility of the water sport to consumers that would be otherwise unable to enjoy it due to the stairs.

The platform is designed to be submersible so that it can seamlessly place a wheelchair from the elevate pool deck into the water. The device utilizes a robotic mechanism to host up and lower a specially designed chair that is designed to be used both in and out of the water, while providing the correct support.Photo Credits: designboom, poolpodproducts
