RecTech II: Technology for a Healthier Lifestyle

Physical Inactivity and Onset

of Secondary Conditions

Challenges:

  • Physical activity is significantly lower in disabled populations.
  • Closing the gap between acute rehab and community exercise.
  • Technology and “convenience” items reduce energy expenditure.
  • Unemployment rate for working age people with disabilities is more than triple that for non-disabled people.

Healthy, Active Lifestyles

FOR ALL

Barriers to Physical Activity Make it More Difficult for People with Disabilities to Reach their Goal
