AquaVee's Pilates system
AquaVee Portable Swim System
What It Is: An easy-to-use swim-in-place system. Swimmers first strap on
an inflatable belt. Two suction cups attach to the swimming pool wall, and two lines run from the inflatable belt to the suction cups, allowing the user to swim in place. The system packs easily and can be used when traveling.
Price: AquaVee sells for $89.90 for the original system and $119.90 for a Pilates version. It’s available at aquaveeonline.com.
Inventor: Former competitive swimmer Alberto Roque, who is from Costa Rica
but lives in Miami, unveiled the system at the Miami Boat Show in February.
He sold more than 85 units just through word of mouth.
