Home exercise videos for adults living with chronic conditions

HSE Healthy Eating Active Living Programme and Office of the National Clinical Advisor and Group Lead for Chronic Disease have collaborated with HSE physiotherapy colleagues to produce a series of 10-45 minute home exercise videos. These videos are suitable for people living with chronic conditions who can exercise safely at home.

The videos range from warms ups to chair exercises, to a 10 minute gentle aerobic session and also include full aerobic and resistance sessions. They are suitable for those beginning exercise or those who havent exercised in a while. The videos can be self-paced and done in 10 minute slots building to up to 45 minute sessions over time. They are also available for healthcare professionals to signpost to patients who they know can do these safely at home.  All the sessions have been clinically designed and approved by physiotherapists in the HSE.
