Exercise for motor neuron disease. Presented by Dr Alessandra Ferri

Prioritising safety over exercise efficacy for people living with MND

Motor Neuron Disease is one of the last diseases where the beneficial effects of exercise are still being established. Dr Alessandra Ferri offers us a pathway that is highly considerate of the pathophysiology and clinical symptoms, prioritising participant safety above all else. 

Learn about:

  • Why exercise is not an integral part of the multidisciplinary care for patients with MND
  • Prescription considerations needed for each exercise mode 
  • Tailoring exercise programs to the type of MND onset

This professional development covers: 

  • Evidence supporting and limiting exercise participation 
  • Exercise prescription dose and considerations 
  • Application to practice case studies

Before joining Victoria University as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Dr Alessandra Ferri was a Senior Lecturer in Human Physiology at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy. Her exercise physiology research focuses on the pathophysiology of the transport and utilisation of oxygen, using this physiological information to design tailored exercise training to improve muscle health, physical function and quality of life in different clinical populations, including motor neurone disease.
