What is MedEx?
MedEx@WIT is a community-based chronic illness rehabilitation service which offers programmes of specifically tailored physical activity classes in a supervised environment by specially qualified instructors. It is a collaboration between the WIT ARENA, the WIT Department of Health, Sport and Exercise Science & the WIT Department of Nursing and Health Care.
The first MedEx@WIT programme to start was the Move-On programme, specifically designed for people who have finished their cancer treatment. We anticipate that other programmes will start in the coming months for people with peripheral arterial disease and people who have finished phase III cardiac rehabilitation.
Where and When are the MedEx@WIT programmes on?
The 10-week Move On exercise programme is hosted by WIT Arena in collaboration with the WIT Department of Health, Sport and Exercise Science & the Department of Nursing and Health Care. The 10-week Move On exercise programme commenced on Tuesday, 28 March 2017 . Please contact the WIT Arena for information on the start date for follow-on programmes.
