Medical use

Supplying advanced float products for medical research at LIBR since 2014

Each day I become more and more convinced that the positive clinical benefits we are witnessing in our research are enhanced by Floataway’s masterful engineering.

The CLINICAL FLOATATION website provides an overview of an emerging new technology known as Floatation-REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy) that appears to powerfully counter the deleterious effects of stress in modern life.

"Floataway’s mission is to create the “perfect” float experience; Colin and his son Toby are always striving to improve the design and calibration of their pools…  Based on the clinical effects we are witnessing in our research studies, I believe that Floataway has succeeded on every level of its mission.  Rarely does one have the opportunity in life to work with a company that is capable of making your dreams come true, and I consider myself extremely lucky to have joined the Floataway family."*

Designed to be installed


All our products are designed to be installed into existing buildings, carried through standard doors and corridors, and even up stairs. Floatation products are big, but with our modular designs we can fit almost anywhere.  

In especially tight spaces we can create the parts to be joined after delivery with our own bonding system.  If your space is complicated please ask our advice, it is free and can save you from many potential difficulties and costs.


open pools

The open-air design completely removes all feelings of claustrophobia. I cannot overemphasize the importance of having an open pool for anxious populations. Without it many of our patients would have refused to even try floating.

Comprensive product range


Floataway started as a float pod design and manufacture company, but we have grown into a market leader of water based relaxation products that sell all over the world.  All our products are hand crafted with the highest quality materials.
