Objective of the study was to develop and substantiate a technological and pedagogical model for improving the applied swimming skills of rescue technicians in the water area by replacing hydrogen locomotion.
Methods and structure of the study. At the first stage, technical elements preferred for replacement were identified. The integral expert assessment of the effectiveness of locomotor movements was calculated using the arithmetic mean method based on the use of qualimetry algorithms. At the second stage, the productivity of using replacement exercises with the participation of rescue technicians in the water area at the age of 32.5±0.5 years was assessed.
Results and conclusions. New possibilities for programming neuromuscular structures that ensure the functional implementation of hydrogenic locomotion in existing swimming combinations were achieved by generating a higher power regime for strokes; structural-kinetic coupling of rowing movements with the performance of the respiratory function during swimming; reducing hydrodynamic resistance forces; maintaining a stable body position in the water. The effectiveness of the replacement impact model is due to the structural and functional modification of the training of rescue service specialists in water areas, achieved through the use of transformative and integrating exercises.

Keywords: hydrogen locomotion, rescue techniques, water-supported strokes, economization of equipment, replacement exercises.
