Adaptive Equipment: How It Can Help You Exercise


Meeting Description:
Exercise has proven to be valuable for those living with MS in gaining flexibility, strength training, cardiovascular exercise, and balance.  For many living with MS, there are mobility challenges that can limit one's ability to exercise.  In this webinar, we will share how to best use various types of adaptive equipment to assist in your exercise program.

This multi-disciplinary webinar is presented with two experts in Occupational Therapy and  Physical Therapy from the Can Do MS Program Consultants.

Our panel of experts will speak on various approaches for exercising with adaptive equipment. There will also be a question and answer period for participants to ask questions.

This comprehensive program will be archived on the Can Do MS website: www.mscando.org.  You will be able to watch it at your convenience if you’re unable to attend live.
