One of our favorite events of the year kicks off this week. Nekdoodle® will be attending the Aquatic Therapy and Rehab Institute’s (ATRI) 20th Annual Aquatic Therapy Symposium in Sanibel, FL from June 28 through July 2. Since 2012, Nekdoodle® has been an official year-round events equipment supplier for ATRI. It is our passion and our mission to support organizations that help people by way of aquatic recreation and therapy.
ATRI is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to the development of healthcare professionals involved with aquatic therapy. ATRI conferences, such as next week’s symposium in Sanibel, FL, are designed to provide continuing education to advance the knowledge and skills of aquatic therapists.
Aquatic recreation and therapy affects a great number of people. As research continues to be done regarding the benefits of low impact resistance aquatic exercise and therapy, the importance of organizations to continue the progression grows. The most extensive aquatic therapy education is currently offered by ATRI.
During the 5 day symposium starting next week, Nekdoodle® looks forward to connecting with some of the industry’s most prominent and forward thinking aquatic educators and therapists. Educational sessions will include such topics as rehab for sports injuries, improved mobility for those suffering from Parkinson’s disease, WATSU® therapy for chronic pain relief and therapy for wounded warriors and amputees.
If you happen to be attending the symposium, plan to attend the Nekdoodle® session. On this Saturday, June 28 from 6:30-7:30 PM, Donna Adler, BA, ATRIC will be conducting a pool session titled Nekdoodle® Progressions with Flotation. We are excited to demonstrate to the community the many uses of Nekdoodle® for therapy and fitness.
ATRI is on the forefront of advancing aquatic therapy and exercise education. We are thrilled to be part of such a progressive organization and look forward to supporting their cause for years to come.
