Abstract by: Heather Bunn
Maher, E.J., Kinne, S., & Patrick, D.L. (1999). "Finding a good thing": the use of quantitative and qualitative methods to evaluate an exercise class and promote exercise for adults with mobility impairments. Disability and Rehabilitation, 1999: 22(9), 438-447.
PurposeThe purpose of this study was to determine how a community-based conditioning class affected people with disabilities. Maher, Kinne, & Patrick (1999) believe that promotion of activity aims to reduce declines in functional limitation and activity restriction, prevent secondary conditions, and improve social participation and quality of life.
