Description

The PFD-A is a vest designed for dorsal position.

*As soon as the person is able to put her/himself alone at the vertical on the water, she/he must use the Lj-A model.

“This was the VERY FIRST time in my life that I could swim using both my arms and legs simultaneously. If on my own, I usually swim with mostly my arms and then feel as if I have swallowed so much water that I could have drunk a whole entire lake).
So it has me so excited!”
(Jennifer Zubko, London, Ontario)

Description

Lj-A supports the upright position for disabled person

Lj-A is used by all people able to put themselves alone in the vertical on the water. This vest helps at the ventral position. It provides superior stability to the front.

In case where the person suffers from spasms or from underdeveloped bottom part of the body, it is suggested to use the PFD-A model for poly-handicaps.

“(…) 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)

Description

Its ergonomic configuration provides great comfort in the supported vertical position

The Lj-V model was designed to maintain the vertical position supported foolproof for customers suffering from multi-handicaps. This flotation aid constantly keeps the mouth away from water and maintains the body at the vertical despite a fœtus position, an undeveloped lower body or sudden movements with large contortions…This is the principle of stability of a collar, used here in its full capacity.

“ I got a chance to try the jacket yesterday saturday, not for very long, only about 15mn in the water. AND THE JACKET WORKED PERFECTLY !! (…)
Thank you again for all your help.”
