Benefits and constraints of outdoor recreation for people with physical disabilities: inferences from recreational fishing. Leisure Sciences, 32(1), 55-71. Retrieved May 13, 2012, from the Academic Search Complete database. The authors claimed to be the first to research benefits of going fishing for those with disabilities in Outdoor Recreation. To conduct the study, a questionnaire was sent out to a large population of people who visited fisheries; those who had a German handicap-pass were placed in one group, and those who did not were placed in the control group. The study design was appropriate for comparing benefits of fishing for disabled and not-disabled people. From the 992 questionnaires collected, the authors reported that although many benefits that both groups experienced were around the same level of satisfaction, none of the levels were higher for those without disabilities. All resulting statistical information was presented in exhibit format, allowing for easy comparison of results between the two groups. Implications were thoroughly discussed and the authors suggested that past research on satisfaction of fishing as outdoor recreation heavily depends on the amount of fish actually caught.

This article is related to Therapeutic Recreation due to its claimed benefits in making ill patients feel better and more positive than before. The researchers investigate how different theories from other healing practices which are commonly used may also apply to music therapy. In the study, researchers looked at individual responses of a sample group and assessed their bodys response to music therapy over time. This was qualitative research based on patients trying to play instruments, which unfortunately were not always suitable to the patients themselves. For instance, not everybody has the body to play a saxophone. The fact that patients did not always enjoy playing these instruments may have hindered results. The analysis showed that effects on patients varied quit
