The Rehabilitation Research Group and the IHC are pleased to invite you to their November lecture in their monthly lecture series, covering a number of relevant topics by local guest speakers. 

November’s lecture is entitled ‘High Intensity Exercise (HIT) for People with Parkinson’s Disease’ and will be delivered by Bernhard Haas.

“Exercise improves fitness and function in people with Parkinson’s Disease and may also have a neuro-protective effect, with higher intensity exercise being more beneficial than lower intensity exercise. We explored factors limiting exercise capacity and the safety, feasible and acceptability of this form of exercise in people with mild to moderate Parkinson’s disease.”

Bernhard is an Associate Professor and Deputy Head of School of Health Professions. He is a physiotherapist by professional background and has worked in neurological rehabilitation.

Everybody is welcome to attend, just turn up on the day!
