Home>Case Studies>Healthcare Signs>New Hydrotherapy Pool for Children's Hospital
The new pool at the Ryegate Children's Centre was opened by Paralympic gold medallist, Oliver Hynd and aims to help disabled youngsters develop their skills and strengthen their bodies."

The new facility replaces the centre's previous 50-year-old pool, and boasts a contemporary design with an accessible sunken bathing area, complete with underwater lights and an improved hoist system.

Signs Express (Sheffield) worked with Cat Powell, Artfelt Manager at The Children's Hospital Charity. The process was to assist and advise on the most suitable vinyl and print. The environment has very high humidity levels so the right choices were key. It was also advised that speciality paint be applied to the walls for adhesion.

Over the course of the project, a number of different options were tested and after
40 metres of full colour printed 'Hi Tac' vinyl to interior walls was installed we knew the right decision had been made. The product suits the environment and will stand the test of time.

Carol Morris, owner of Signs Express (Sheffield) said: 'It has been a joy to be part of this project. Signs Express (Sheffield) worked with key members of the team including the artists and hospital staff to ensure the right decisions were being made. The end result…a wonderful environment for the children'.

Cat Powell, Artfelt manager at the children's hospital personally sent a letter of thanks to Signs Express (Sheffield) and here is what she said:

'Thank you so much for all your help in making the hydrotherapy pool project a great success. Your support paid a key part in helping us to be able to transform the pool and we are extremely grateful for this'.

The letter also included thanks for hospital staff working with the children. Jenny Featherstone, team leader for community physiotherapy and occupational therapy at Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust added:

'We are immensely grateful to all of the people who have been involved in this project. The new pool provided us with a bright, fresh, fun environment which will transform hydrotherapy for all involved'.
