We have seen some trepidation in the re-opening of Aquatic Therapy facilities with our clients during the last few months. A very understandable reaction from hospital and rehabilitation managers to do the utmost to keep patients safe and healthy.
In the mean time however, patients have the need to be treated on a regular basis to recover from illness, injury or surgery. Now that the world is getting past the first shock of the new virus, facilities are slowly starting up again under strict safety measures.
Therefore we are very happy that our friends at IOAPT (The International Oganisation for Aquatic PhysioTherapists) have come up with a new statement with instructions how to ensure a safe working environment for patients and therapists. In this statement you will find clear and practical instructions how to ensure the safety and hygiene.
