This resource was created by a mother who saw a gap in information available to her son who had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and had started to use a wheelchair more often. It is directed at the wheelchair user and explains why it is useful to maintain a good posture and stretch as well as encouraging sports and other activities for overall better health. It is available online here or contact us at  info@mda.org.nz to request a printed version.
