Aquatics centre pool lift

The ODA has launched the search for an innovative swimming pool lift that would enable improved access for disabled swimmers

During the London 2012 Diversity Week, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has launched the search for an innovative swimming pool lift that would enable improved access for disabled swimmers.

The ODA is exploring options for an affordable alternative lift to those currently available on the market for disabled swimmers that will use the two 50m pools in the London 2012 Aquatics Centre after the Games.

Current solutions to access pools either prevent a full swimming lane being used for competitions or do not enable disabled swimmers to enter the pool independently or with minimal assistance.

Designers can register their interest in the competition for an ‘Accessible Pool Platform’ at CompeteFor through the London 2012 Business Network www.london2012.com/business
