Portable Aquatic Lift (PAL): A completely portable aquatic lift!

The Portable Aquatic Lift (PAL) is a completely portable aquatic lift, requiring no mounting to the pool deck. It contains over seven hundred pounds of counter weight to support a lifting capacity of 300 lbs. Its padded handle and ball bearing casters make the PAL easy to move, making it the perfect fit for facilities requiring accessibility to more than one water location, as well as for those who wish to store the unit away when it is not needed.

It is not necessary to sacrifice a swim lane to mount the unit, which can be conveniently stored when not in use. The PAL features a mechanical actuator, which is the same reliable technology used on hospital beds all over the world. The actuator is powered by a rechargeable 24-volt battery; a consistent power source that insures that the PAL will work when you need it to work. Every time.

The unique design of the PAL allows it to be adaptable to virtually all swimming pool configurations. Its arms reach over the pool edge and can vary in length depending upon the amount of required clearance. The PAL works well with edgeless designs, as well as with pools with curbs, gutters and skimmers. Either the user or attendant can operate the PAL with ease. The unique design of the seat was specifically engineered for people with disabilities. The seat is deep enough to provide stability and has no edge to facilitate transfers. The controls on the waterproof hand pendant are easy to understand and operate.

Set-up consists of rolling the lift into place along the edge of the pool and locking the wheels.
