THE PROBLEM & THE SOLUTION
A few years ago I had an injury and aquatic therapy was recommended. I began searching for something that I could use in the water as a mobile seat, that was comfortable for my back. I started experimenting with different devices, but everything came up short. No matter what I tried, I could not find the comfort and functionality I was seeking. This inspired me to create my own invention, and here it is! By incorporating everything on my check-list, it became something even bigger and better than imagined. I called it the "Float'nThang". Why? Because every time and anywhere people saw me using it, they asked, "What IS that floatin' thang? Doug Masi.
Why other floats are limited
When you see someone floating, they are generally floating in a sitting position above the water or on a solid float (vests or noodles) in the water that limits the benefits of zero gravity. Quite often they don't allow you to float high enough above the waterline, nor do they provide beverage holders. The Float'n Thang allows individuals to float freely as they select any of the several fun ways to float. The float allows for full arm and leg movement, as well as quick maneuverability with ease & comfort.
The Float'n Thang can be manipulated for an array of stretches. Swimming can be very strenuous, while just standing around is boring. However, the Float'n Thang enables more fun and flexibility, low-impact exercise, and allows you to enjoy the whole experience more! It never needs inflating and does not absorb water.
"This is a float that individuals with disabilities find so buoyant, it is allowing them to float independently for the first time, even if their legs are not functioning or are missing."
How well does it work?
Read about the first user of the new inflatable version Float'n Thang™.
I’m elated to share our daughter’s swimming experience using your new inflatable flotation device. She was thrilled to be able to swim freely without fear and with no one having to hold on to her. We so enjoyed swimming side by side together once again!
The founder of the Float'n Thang, Doug Masi stated, "It hurts me to see drownings that easily could have been avoided". Lake Pleasant had two drownings in the last two weekends. People get excited to be on the water, and during the spring months here in Arizona, the air might be warm, but the water temps are in the low 60s at the surface and colder just below the surface. Individuals find themselves cramping up and dropping below the surface, not coming back up. See story here on Fox 10 Phoenix
The solid Float'n Thang is designed with a high-quality solid foam contoured to fit one's core. The photo on the right of one happy client who is over 300 lbs. He stated that "I have never been able to float and enjoy floating until now. Thanks to having a quality personal flotation device that can hold me comfortably above the waterline. A vest and or other inflatables are not comfortable, and most don't hold me above the waterline."
"I've gotten the best results of in-water floating. No other flotation until The Float'n Thang would float me correctly as I'm 326 lbs." Great for my back relief.

"My son feared pools so I wanted him to take swimming lessons. He really gained confidence in the water after he used my Float'n Thang! Now he can't wait to get in and I can't get him out."
- Julie (Orlanda, Fl)
"I'm an avid boater and just love the multi-functions of the Float'n Thang. It's great as a quick boat bumper, too. I can grab the Thang, jump in the water, and feel the stress leave my back in Zero Gravity immediately.
