Boandik Community Wellness Centre
Hydrotherapy Pool – Mount Gambier, South Australia
The Boandik Community Wellness Centre’s new hydrotherapy pool allows therapeutic treatment for the Limestone Coast’s residents for diseases and conditions such as arthritis, musculoskeletal injuries, insomnia and pain management. The fully tiled pool features a ramp and fabulously warm waters that support the aged care and general health of the community.
The completed pool is 12.5m x 8.5m, fully tiled with a depth ranging from 0.9m to 1.15m. A disability accessible ramp with rails on both sides ensures the pool is compliant for access by all levels of accessibility. The inclusion of an entire perimeter handrail and anti-slip tiles on the floor provide peace of mind and support for the elderly and physically limited patients expected to make the most of the constantly warm waters.
