Tool: E-gym project
This month, we introduce you to a very interesting tool which is linked with exercising for persons living with Parkinson’s disease. This tool was developed a few years ago by Parkinson Italia. It is called E-gym Project (electronic gym). For each exercise proposed on this platform, there is a video describing the details of the exercise, an audible description with precious instructions and that follows each steps of the exercise. Amongst the different videos, there are muscular exercises, breathing exercises, coordination and balance exercises.
As you know, there are many benefits to exercise for persons living with Parkinson’s disease. However, it is recommended to consult with a specialist (your doctor, physical therapist or kinesiologist) before starting a regular exercise program.
You can find the link to access the gym here.
