Pelican Pool Hoist for Nadrasca

FDC’s Charity Committee recently acquired a hoist for Nadrasca, Victoria, that will allow Nadrasca clients to enjoy hydrotherapy in the in-house pool.

Established in 1967, Nadrasca’s purpose is to establish and develop a range of services and provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities.  Currently over 350 people with a disability have been given employment opportunities, and Nadrasca directly employs approximately 150 permanent, part time and casual staff across their services to assist their clients.

Services include:-
– Nadrasca Industry: A Disability Supported Employment Service
– Community Options: Day programs & activities for persons with significant disabilities
– Accommodation Services: 24 hour care and independent living as well as recreational and holiday programs
– Seniors @ Nadrasca

The hoist was presented to Nadrasca at the end of March at a ceremony addressed by Nadrasca’s General Manager, Raeoni Turner, at which there was a demonstration by Nadrasca’s client, Wayne, who used the hoist to exit the Witt Street pool.  Before the installation of the hoist, Wayne had been unable to access the hydrotherapy pool for five years; now both he and the staff are very excited that he is again able to use this facility again.

FDC staff were also given a tour of Nadrasca’s head office and the warehouse where clients carry out their work activities: everything from filling up jars with McCormack dried herbs to pulling apart Telstra rental phones for recycling.

  • Para Mobility are very proud to announce our new addition to the range.
  • The PELICAN Pool Hoist with spinal board attachment
  • The spinal board we have chosen is currently used by the NSW ambulance service along with lifesaving organisations across Australia. It is a lightweight carbon fiber material, weighing just 5kg the board can hold up to 200kg and will give many people access to the pool again.
  • Hydrotherapy is a very popular form of therapy due to it’s many benefits:
    •     -Decreased muscle spasms as the muscles are able to relax 
    •     -Decreased pain due to the warmth and support from the water 
    •     -The buoyancy of the water relieves any gravity related issues
    •     -Resistance provided by the water increases muscle strength 
    •     -Decreases swelling and odema
    •     -Improves balance and stabilisation
    •     -Enjoying exercise without the associated pain
    • People with the following medical conditions can benefit greatly from hydrotherapy:
      •     -Back pain/sciatica/ lumbar instability
      •     –Tendinopathy
      •     -Osteoarthritis
      •     -Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia
      •     -Muscular Distrophy
      •     -Spinal injuries
      •     -Ankylosing Spondylitis
      •     -Parkinson’s Disease
      •     -Stroke
      •     -Cerebral Palsy
      •     -Rehabilitation after bone fractures, joint replacement or tendon repair
    • With final testing underway, we hope to have the spinal board available for sale over the next month or so. Please contact us if you have a query.
