With the ADA working toward making pool lifts mandatory for public pools, you may want to consider an alternative to the typical corded headset. RehaMed International has introduced a waterproof wireless alternative to facilitate pool lift operation. It fits new lift systems and can be retrofitted to existing lifts. In busy locations, it can be issued only to people who will use the lift, avoiding unnecessary use or potential damage. It is packaged with a lanyard so the user always has control of the lift, preventing the circumstance when another user leaves the wired headset where it cannot be accessed.
