30. Inclusive Physical Activity Measures

Physical activity is beneficial for everyone, but it is especially important for individuals with
disabilities who experience obesity and high blood pressure at significantly higher rates than the
general population. This lecture will build a case for the importance of inclusion of individuals with
disabilities in physical activity and discuss considerations for assessment measures of physical
activity and fitness levels. Adaptive equipment and alternative methods for measuring activity will
be included.
