Swimming is the sport most practiced by people with disabilities, since it allows most people (from the slightly handicapped to the most heavily handicapped) to use their motor abilities in a weightless situation. The access to swimming pool for disabled people is possible thanks to our Hippocampe submergible wheelchair.

Or with the help of a third-person, get off the pool stairs to reach the water.
