Blu One Swimming Pool Lift

Dolphin Mobility has announced the addition of a new portable hydraulic pool lift to its product portfolio. The BluOne Pool Lift, manufactured by Digi Project of Italy, is designed to assist anyone who struggles to get in and out of a swimming pool using steps, particularly the disabled, elderly or people recovering from illness or injury.

It works by a person sitting on the seat at the front and being pushed to the edge of the pool from a dressing room or elsewhere. The brake is then set and locked in position, the 'down' button pressed and the swimmer lowered into the water.

Featuring a total of five different safety levels, the lift can handle up to 110kg and has a down-lift time - with weight - of 23 seconds and an up-lift time - also with weight - of 17 seconds. Power comes from a 24V rechargeable battery. A seat belt is fitted as standard and the lift comes in a standard colour of white, although it is also available in blue.

The BluOne complements Dolphin's existing pool lift range which include the Oxford Dipper and Rehamed's Portable Aquatic Lift (PAL) and Splash Semi Portable Lift.
