Presented By: Dr. Eadric Bressel, Professor and Clinical Research Scientist in the Sports Medicine Program and Dr. Dennis Dolny, Department Head of Health, Physical Education & Recreation in the College of Education & Human Services at Utah State University
Research is exploring two big questions about aquatic environments: (1) How does walking in shallow water compare to walking on an underwater treadmill or on land? (2) Does the aquatic environment influence cognition? Answer the first question with a review of research on the biomechanical comparisons of locomotion in water and on land. Learn more about cognition—one of the least studied areas in aquatics therapy—when new research is revealed that links immersion in water to brain activity. You’ll learn why aquatic programming may have additional value for your participants.

Eadric Bressel, PhD, is a professor and clinical research scientist in the Sports Medicine Program at Utah State University (USU) in Logan, UT. His research in aquatics examines neuromechanical adaptations to therapeutic exercise. Bressel holds a doctorate in biomechanics and is a member of the American Society of Biomechanics and the American College of Sports Medicine.
Dennis Dolny, PhD, is the Department Head for Health, Physical Education & Recreation in the College of Education & Human Services at Utah State University (USU). He has chaired 10 doctoral committees and published 30 peer-reviewed research articles. Dolny’s laboratory collaborates with USU Sports Medicine examining the role of hydrotherapy in rehabilitation following lower extremity surgical procedures and joint replacement in the elderly.
