Hydrotherapy: Keeping Your Chin Up In The Water!
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff




Try the Head Float with children with Cerebral Palsy or Hypotonia. The material of the Head Float is the same density as human skin, making the float comfortable and non-clammy.

Try putting water wings on the ankles for an interesting change of position!
