About SUPERHEALTH

The SUPERHEALTH Project is a home-based exercise training system designed to improve fitness and function in people with a mobility disability

People with physical disabilities are three times more likely to have one or more chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, compared to adults without disabilities. They are less physically active often due to high rates of unemployment and underemployment; may be unable to walk outdoors due to difficult terrain, safety, or the inability to walk; public transportation to and from community fitness facilities is unavailable; or the fitness facilities’ equipment, classes, and programs are inaccessible.

The SUPERHEALTH project aims to evaluate a home-based exercise training system for its effectiveness at increasing and maintaining physical activity among people with a mobility disability. The program includes exercise videos and content to support physical activity behavior all on a tablet app. This project is seeking individuals that are either unable to walk or have difficulty walking as a means for exercise.

More details about SUPERHEALTH

What does SUPERHEALTH stand for?

SUPERHEALTH stands for Scale Up Project Evaluating Responsiveness to Home Exercise And Lifestyle TeleHealth 

How long is the exercise program?

The SUPERHEALTH project delivers a 48-week exercise program aimed to steadily increase physical activity level and self-reliance over that period. The first 12 weeks will include weekly exercise videos and supporting content, and is designed to start with simple movements and short bouts of exercise. The second 12 weeks will provide content every other week and will introduce more intermediate movements. Finally, the last 24 weeks aims to support participants as self-reliant exercisers with monthly content to maintain motivation.

What type of exercise program is included?

Movement-2-Music (M2M) is a structured rhythmic movement program specifically designed to target range of motion, muscle strength, cardiorespiratory endurance, and balance. All routines are designed with adapted tempos and movements.

How is the program adapted for me?

This program provides exercises made just for your abilities. Whether you use a wheelchair, have difficulty standing, able to only use one side of the body, or able to stand while exercising, the SUPERHEALTH project offers the exercise routines needed. At the screening, you will be assessed for which category you fall under and the appropriate exercise routines will be programmed.

Are there different groups?

You will be randomly selected to be in the exercise group (called M2M), the exercise group with social networking (called M2Mplus), or the control group. If you receive the assignment of control group, you will still complete the testing and receive an online program aimed to improve your health. Once the 48-week program is completed, participants in the control group will be able to download the exercise training system.  

What type of exercise equipment will be used?

Participants in ALL three groups will be given a Fitbit to track their activity and a tablet to view content. If all of the required visits and surveys are completed, the tablet and Fitbit will be yours to keep. The total amount of provided equipment is valued at $500!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT M2M

I had a hard time after my diagnosis seeing myself as a person with a disability. The most positive experience with exercise as a person with a disability was when my physical therapist explained the reasons behind the difficulty I sometimes had in walking and how I could best address each issue with specific stretches and strengthening exercises. As someone who enjoys both music and dancing, M2M has been more fun than any other exercise program I have done in my adult life. Daily tasks such as unloading the dishwasher and walking the dog have become easier as I feel that my coordination, balance and strength have improved.
Katherine, 41 years old Diagnosed with MS
M2M stopped me from lying around the house. At first it was a challenge but then I looked forward to it, and then I got stronger.
Maria, 56 years old Diagnosed with a stroke
My physical activity is getting better and better every day, especially in my walking and balance while standing. I’m not having the falls like I used to have.
Damian, 47 years old Diagnosed with MS
