All from the comfort of their living room. Designed for Aquaphobics, non-swimmers and beginners or anybody who needs to feel more confident in or around water. There is also a strong message of water safety awareness throughout the app.

Once you have downloaded and installed the App, the opening scene is in the changing room. Here you can walk around by using your mouse, by holding down the left button or by pushing it forward. You can use your finger on a tablet or mobile devices. (Stop and take your time, there is no rush) click and listen to the calming voice of your relaxation coach. (Clinical Hypnotherapist). You can play our great selection of interactive relaxation videos on poolside, whenever you need to use them. Users can enter the pool itself, at any point (jump in) or via the pool stairs in the shallow end. This pool in your pocket is a safe and gentle way to experience what it is like to be in the middle of a large swimming pool. Once in the water you can submerge and move about underwater or go into the deep end and even stand on the bottom.

You can also float on your back and your front. We aimed for the water and the effects to be as realistic as possible, you may feel like you have to hold your breath when you duck under. By simply clicking the on-screen instruction boxes, you can undertake those actions or combinations of movements. Try lying down and floating, ducking under, swimming, and standing up. You can only exit the pool using the stairs in the shallow end.
