The German Floating Association is committed to obtaining, cataloguing, and digitising all existing research information on floating from universities and research institutes. In this way, known effects can be documented and can serve to initiate new research projects.

Floating in a super-saturated saline solution has medically proven effects in the areas of:
• Orthopaedics
• Sport medicine
• Convalescence
• Pain therapy
• Dermatology
• Stress reduction

The Association is committed to communicating with universities, university clinics and other research centres and gathering new data in these areas. Research done in the USA and Sweden shows that new studies have confirmed specifics already known and new information has been collected using modern research methods.
