Limited Mobility Must Not Limit Exercise

By Victoria Abbott-Flemming, Burning Nights

People with limited mobility can find it hard to exercise regularly for a number of reasons. Not only do they face physical challenges; it is also quite likely that they may be self-conscious about it, fearing that they might pick up an injury or feel intimidated. However, thanks to technological innovations, and coupled with support from friends and colleagues, it is very achievable for people with limited mobility to obtain regular exercise.

The following infographic from British chronic pain charity Burning Nights looks at how people with limited mobility can overcome any potential barriers to exercising, identifies the different types of exercise in which they can partake and mentions some of the equipment that is designed specifically for people with disabilities who wish to exercise. Also, there are some very practical tips for exercising with limited mobility, and a list of reasons as to why it is so beneficial to the disability community.

As the founder of the Burning Nights charity, I created this infographic to encourage people with disabilities to take up exercise if they have not done so already, as it will make a huge difference not just to their physical health, but also do wonders for their self-confidence.
