The swimming aid for children with physical restrictions is a balancing act between a sensible therapy device and a toy. Without belts or splints, the child experiences the liberating contact with the element water. It offers fun and a piece of normality in the stigmatized everyday life of those children. As per medical specialists, minimo is the first therapy device of its kind. It offers safety and all new, innovative ways of therapy practice.
It is made of polyethylen in two different densities. The green part is pleasantly soft and adapts itself to the child’s body. The red part is harder and gives minimo the necessary stability.
