Exercise Rehabilitation

The Exercise Rehabilitation group examines the role of regular physical activity in the primary and secondary prevention of chronic disease and disability.

Past and current research has focussed on the role of exercise in improving strength, fitness, health and well-being in senior citizens, people with spinal cord injury and in various chronic disease populations (eg. cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis).

Our research is conducted in the Centre for Health Promotion and Rehabilitation, a state-of-the-art facility that also houses community exercise programs for people with heart disease (MacTurtles), people with spinal cord injury (MacWheelers) and senior citizens (MacSeniors).
