The Navy is looking to add new performance-tracking systems and cognitive enhancement techniques to Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Navy Diver candidate training. Pro athletes are the source the Navy is looking to as they hope to take a more holistic approach to certain aspects in order to prevent injuries. A new tactical performance laboratory is being built at the Naval Diving and Salvage Center in Panama City, Florida where divers can work with new professionals such as performance dietitians, cognitive therapists, and kinesiotherapists. The goal is to prevent injuries and both mental and physical breakdowns.
