Nowadays, when life gets us down and stress is building up, we need to find a way to unwind and relax. Most of the times we do not have time for an exotic getaway, a hike to the mountains or a tour around the globe. We need something close to us that allows us to relax without getting too far from home. Float is a new invention that makes floating in the water a very pleasurable experience.
Floating in the water is perhaps, one of the best ways to unwind. The simple act of sitting motionless and allowing the water to hold us relaxes both our mind and our body. Float is a water therapy product that was designed in Iceland. It aims to make floating an even more relaxing experience than before. It enables the body and mind to relax completely by removing the effort of actually floating. Float is designed to be used in the swimming pool where freshwater does not make floating as effortless as salt water.
Float has two parts. The first part is a cap that keeps your head out of the water. It is made of neoprene, Lycra and polyethylene foam. The second part is made of support aids that must be strapped to your legs. These straps are made of neoprene, Lycra and soft Velcro. The added buoyancy brought by these two parts of the Float system makes floating effortless. The cap has the added advantage of blocking out sounds. It also protects the user’s ears and makes sure water does not get in.
The two parts of the system can be bought either individually, or as a set. The cap alone is S$85, while the support aids cost $55 for two. A complete set brings the total to $135. What do you think of this new invention? Is Float relaxing enough for you?
