About Andrew Power

Swim England will be delivering a session in partnership with University of Nottingham and Good Boost. This will draw on the evidence review published in 2018 on the ‘Health and Wellbeing Benefits of Swimming‘, which examined the evidence relating to the prevention and management of long term conditions through swimming and aquatic activity. This review, coupled with years of insight from Swim England delivery approaches has led to development of the Water Wellbeing model, supporting leisure operators to ensure that pool environments are safe and appropriate, staff are suitably skilled and that aquatic interventions are tailored and effective. The Good Boost aquatic rehabilitation system will be highlighted as an example of one of these offers, using artificial intelligence to tailor exercise to individual need, both in the pool and at home. Participants attending this session will hear how vital the water is in supporting inactive people to lead more active lives.
