It allows water to flow around the body rather than holding a person on top of the water, which enables interaction with the environment and helps reduce anxiety. The head pad is reversible with lateral supports for slight head/neck support. Shoulder straps snap over the arms for an easy fit, both providing room for arm propulsion and preventing the body from rolling. The bottom row of sectional pieces can be folded under to allow for greater range of motion in the lower body. Care should be taken to watch for air chill on parts of the body above the water surface.
