Virtual Exercise Prescription for Older Adults | Prescription d’exercice virtuelle pour les aînés

The delivery of exercise prescription interventions is typically done in person on an individual or group basis. With COVID 19 there was an opportunity to explore alternative exercise prescription models, including in a virtual format. As part of the SYNERGIC@Home intervention project an individual exercise prescription method was developed and is being piloted. This method was created with a focus on safe and effective delivery of exercise prescription and exercise monitoring.
