Increasing Physical Activity in Diabetic Adults via Aquatic Treadmill and Strength Exercises
MetadataShow full item record
Previous research in aquatic exercise has shown joint stress to be reduced due to the buoyancy and thermal properties of water. This should improve exercise enjoyment and compliance in overweight individuals and those with joint pain. Since there is a high correlation between diabetes and obesity, and exercise is imperative for limiting the adverse effects of diabetes, this study looked at finding exercise modes that will motivate diabetics to start and continue in regular physical activity.
