Swimming Block / Swimming aid

Swimming Block

Drowning risk is higher for children in poorer regions with less opportunity to learn swimming. The swimming block is a solution to help children's swimming education. The swimming block is assembled with a 1.5L PET bottle and it provides plenty of buoyancy. It is easy for children to assemble this by hand. It is cheap because it uses PET bottles. Because the number of PET bottles can be adjusted by the user, it can be used for adults as well as children. Depending on the type of assembly, the swimming block can support all swimming training from basic training to complete swimming.
