Abstract: The director of Rectech, a project focused on the health and well-being of children and adults with disabilities, talks about the center and the role rehabilitation and physical activity play in promoting health and function. The center’s goal is to ensure that every person with a disability in this country will be able to find something they can do that’s physically active, engaging, and enjoyable. To achieve this goal, the center is working on projects to be used in one of two settings, home and community, that they believe are extremely important to produce productive exercise programs and eliminate barriers persons with disabilities face. Run time: 2 minutes 48 seconds.
