Hydrotherapy pool, Royal United Hospital, Bath

Department A1 – RUH, Bath BA1 3NG

About the location

The warm water is great for younger children who can move, play and socialise happily without becoming cold.

Gentle water exercise can be safer and more comfortable in a hydrotherapy pool. The soothing warmth and buoyancy of the water makes a safe, ideal environment for gentle exercise and building water confidence.

Water supports the joints to encourage free movement, and may also act as resistance to help build muscle strength

Children develop water movement skills from the start and we insist upon teaching water safety skills to all our swimmers from the very first lesson.  There are hand rails all the way around the pool for safety and swimmers wear buoyancy aids, such as flotation packs and arm bands while the swimmers build up their water confidence.  The constant depth of the pool means that an instructor is in the water with the children at all times during the class.
