Allows individuals to swim comfortably on their stomachs and to float on their back. It reassures the most apprehensive users and gives them the freedom to acquire autonomy in the water. Great capacity to bring the face out of the water almost instantly. 

Supports mental or physically disabled person in an upright position for swimming. Ideal for those able to independently maneuver themselves into a vertical orientation in the water. This vest helps at the ventral position. It provides superior stability to the front.

(…) "What a rush!!! I feel totally safe. I am sure that if I needed to have a sleep out there on the Lake I could. This is a wonderful PFD. Worth twice the money, but don't double your price, many individuals could not afford it. I have at least eight other jackets in the basement, all CSA approved, none of them worked.”  (…)
  - John Rogers, Former Executive Director Canadian Paraplegic Association, Nova Scotia

Our safe and reliable lifejackets have revolutionized water safety for people with physical disabilities. 

Designed to meet the needs of people having lost control of their movements or survival reflexes according to very high standards established by hospitals, PFD-A’s and Lj-A’s were first developed in rehabilitation centers to meet the needs of individuals experiencing loss of autonomy through Paraplegia, Quadriplegia, Spinal Cord Injuries, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Epilepsy.

Our vests meet the needs of a large clientele such as hydro-therapists, enthusiasts, vacationers, senior citizens, children and infants.

Our life jackets are increasingly setting the standards in water safety.

A unique therapy tool

PFD A and Lj-A life jackets are great tools for physio- and ergotherapists. For the first time, these professionals have access to a steady and safe support while they dispense their treatments. These safety vests are resistant to involuntary reflexes while at the same time stabilizing the body in the water.

Therapists can now extend their hydro-therapeutic care simultaneously to a greater number of individuals while improving the quality of therapy sessions.

Safety and Freedom, Freedom of movement

The unique design of the Lj-A model keeps the body upright and the face out of the water.

The Life jacket-Adapted or Lj-A is designed for disabled people. It ensures a very high degree of stability. The body leans neither to the back nor to the side and, even more important, the face always remains out of the water. Lj-A protects life.

This life vest allows individuals to swim comfortably on their stomach. Its stability reassures the most apprehensive users and enables them to participate in aquatic programs.

When a person can place him- or herself in an upright position, the Swim life vest should be used rather than one of the Back Floating models. Gives users the freedom they need to become autonomous with increased support of the head.
