This invention relates to an assistive device, which is a swimming pool lift for physically challenged persons configuration by which it is accessible for a physically challenged to reach the pool and to be lowered/lifted for a swimming pool. The device allows a person to be transferred safely to the device when the device is stationed at the pool corner. Here it acts as stationary equipment. Further a person can be transferred safely to the device when the device is located away from the pool corner, say near the changing/dressing room. Following the transfer, the device can be moved/rolled to the pool-corner with the person sitting on the device. Here it acts as mobile equipment.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
