Diving for people with disabilities
IDDA (International Disabled Divers Association) trained Diving Instructors
A few words!
Especially for people with disabilities, sports diving holds an immense potential for positive influences – both physiologically and psychologically.
- retainment and development of individual movement functions/motorskills.
- muscle tissue
- increase in self-convidence
- increasing your own abiities
- social contacts (diving is a partnersport)
Wheelchair users can experience a real, unexpected freedom of movement in a new dimension. Diving as a sport also proves to be an underestimated therapy for rehabilitation – up to a measure that conventional kinesiatrics cannot reach.
In summary, we can conclude:
For this group of people – diving is a real Sport of Integration!
Foreword: We do offer an extensive programme for interested people. Our instructors are qualified under IDDA (International Disabled Divers Assiciation ) and IAHD (International Association of Divers with Disablities) guidlines/standards. You will be in good hands!
