Physical Activity Experiences in Thalidomide Survivors

New research into physical activity experiences in thalidomide survivors by Loughborough University and the Trust

At Loughborough University we are currently researching the physical activity experiences of beneficiaries. Whether you are a regular exerciser or someone who does very little exercise at all, we are very interested in what you have to say. We believe everyone’s stories count.

Despite the benefits of physical activity for age-related health issues, most thalidomide survivors find it very difficult to get enough exercise. We would like to know why it is so difficult and what you think could be done to make it easier. If you are a regular exerciser, we want to know what motivates you and how you manage to overcome the many barriers that exist. We believe that by listening to your personal stories and views we can better understand how to increase physical activity in the beneficiary community.
