Abstrakt

Therapeutic (re)habilitation intervention within aquatic environments to
advantage buoyancy aided movement-training using ‘Virtual Reality’ technologies
indicated potentials and next-level challenges through Proof-of-Concept (PoC)
‘beyond-simulation model’ testing. Beyond the buoyancy aspect is a concept built
on evidence from field work where profoundly disabled participants after a pool visit
exhibited greater awakeness and engagement within intervention. The study builds
upon the author’s prior research to empower, motivate and engage interactions to
supplement traditional (re)habilitation approaches. Testing took place in a contextspecific
location with a human subject. Therapists and special pool staff attended and
evaluated positively to potentials. This chapter shares the concept, set-up and workin-
progress toward realising next-level research funded consortia to question and
address challenges found to date with a goal of advancing the field of (re)habilitation
through AquAbilitation.
