Aquatic fitness and rehabilitation at individuals with disabilities

Stan Elena Amelia
Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, Ecological University, Bucharest, Romania


People with disabilities frequently are unable to exercise on land. Through water exercise they can contribute to their own health and wellness. People with disabilities can develop and maintain a level of physical fitness that can decrease or prevent the risk of appearance of other diseases, in spite of psychological obstacles that still remain in our country today. Depending on availability hydrotherapists should help patients to set goals and objectives and adapt equipments and skills to their needs. Our hydrotherapists must apply the concepts about maintaining health and fitness and make the adaptations to aquatic fitness training for people with disabilities to organize a program that will meet all the needs of patients.
Key words:

aquatic fitness, rehabilitation, disabilities
