Retirement Village Pool Hoist

Pool Lifts for Retirement Village

By Accessibility, Pool Lifts No Comments

Dolphin work with retirement villages across the country by providing access solutions and advice. We supplied and installed an i-Swim2 pool lift for this village near Romsey to help their residents get into this stunning pool.

The i-Swim 2 is an Italian designed portable hoist which can be operated independently or by a lifeguard or attendant. It is supplied with a 4 button handset which quietly and smoothly lifts, lowers and turns the chair.

The health and safety of our customers is our absolute priority and we hope that you are all safe and well at this incredibly difficult time.

We are very aware that our customer base is among the most vulnerable groups with regard to exposure to Covid-19.

We would like to assure everyone that we are taking this crisis very seriously and are doing everything practically possible to comply with Government advice and guidelines.

Therefore the following steps that we have already taken are subject to review as the situation develops. Please note, this is a condensed version of our safeguarding policy which is available on request.

  • All staff and sub-contractors have been warned to self-isolate if they have either a high temperature or a new continuous cough.
  • If any staff member lives with someone that has symptoms they have been told to stay at home for 14 days.
  • Staff have been made aware of the need to regularly wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • All non-essential visits, meetings and travel have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
  • Our engineers have been issued with masks, gloves and shoe protectors.
  • Before visiting properties our customers are being asked if they have symptoms or have been exposed to people that have symptoms.
  • We have successfully trialled operating our offices remotely so that we can continue to serve our customers if the Government advises all workplaces to close.
  • We have in place a no handshaking policy and are practicing social distancing.

We know how essential the products we supply are to our customers health and safety. We are still installing and maintaining our products wherever possible as we believe it is more dangerous to our customers safety for us not to do so.

Therefore we will do absolutely everything we can to continue to give the very best service possible during this unprecedented crisis.

Scudamore’s Accessible Punting

By Accessibility, Pool Lifts No Comments

Scudamore’s Punting in Cambridge have purchased one of our Handimove Pool Lifts so they can make punting accessible for all. The lift enables people to access Scudamore’s punts directly from their pontoon.

We specified the Handimove lift as we believe it to be the best deck mounted hoist on the market. A major selling point was how easily the lift can be removed from its socket. Also, because the lift folds itself up and has built in wheels, it is very simple for staff to store.

We supplied the hoist with a seat sling but it can also be used with any loop sling which is suitable for this type of transfer. This means that people with complex needs can bring their own sling with them.
