We believe that water offers the safest circumstances for balance training. Therefore we offer a complete set of obstacles that can be used in water-based fall prevention training.

Fall prevention is an important topic for the geriatric population, as well as patients with neurological, rheumatic or orthopedic conditions. Commonly, these patients are trained using a land-based obstacle course, which has its disadvantages as the patient must be prevented from actually falling, as possibly hurting themselves.

Together with experts in the field, EWAC Medical has developed a way to move these exercise to the water. This improves the safety of the patient and heightens the fun.
