Pool users can now access both pools at Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre safely and independently using the new Poolpod.

We welcome expectant mothers, parents with young children and people with mobility issues to check out the new equipment. For users that are more independent a wristband can be provided, this allow users to be lower into the water in your own time. For those who need further assistance a member of the lifeguard team can supervise your descent.

The poolpod has a generous 250kgs lifting capacity means two users can enter the water at the same time or one person in the wheelchair. The wheelchair has a weight capacity of 100Kg.

The new poolside tilt wheelchair is available to use at Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre and Pancras Square Leisure. The new poolside wheelchair provides more support and comfort than a regular poolside chair. The chair benefits from being able to tilt, adjusting head, back and foot support. The chair has a harness should any one require extra support and making parallel transfers from another wheelchair, changing bench or WC.
