Physical activity and disability
Practising physical activity is recommended in general, and must always be performed according to each individual person’s capabilities. In cases of disability we recommend consulting with a expert who can assess each individual person’s capabilities and design suitable programmes.
Physical activity has many benefits: improving metabolic status, the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, improving bone renewal and slowing down the onset of osteoporosis, not to mention the beneficial effects on a person’s psychological well-being.
In people with disability, maintaining physical fitness and adequate weight control are very important for confronting mobility difficulties arising from their disability.
