MedEx@WIT is a community-based chronic illness rehabilitation service which offers programmes of specifically tailored exercise classes in a supervised environment by instructors sensitive to the needs of each group. It is a collaboration between the WIT ARENA, the WIT Department of Sport and Exercise Science & the WIT Department of Nursing and Health Care. The concept of MedEx Wellness originated in Dublin City University, where a thriving programme has been operating since 2006.
