The Halliwick Concept was developed by the swimming instructor and engineer James MacMillan and his wife Phyl McMillan in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Students from the Halliwick School in London, a school for girls with disabilities, inspired them to find a solution so that everyone, regardless of functioning, could participate in water-based activities.
What studies are available on examining effect of swimming pool training according to the Halliwick concept on physical, mental or social health in people with disabilities?
SBU Enquiry Service consists of systematic literature searches to highlight studies that can address questions received by the SBU Enquiry Service from Swedish healthcare or social service providers. Relevant references are compiled by an SBU staff member, in consultation with an external expert when needed. The quality of the studies identified is not systematically reviewed.
