Our first in person ERIG event in nearly three years began at 10:00am and was attended by just over 20 members.
The first talk was by Dr Martine Verheul, Institute for Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences, University of Edinburgh.
Martine gave an illustrated talk entitled: Frame running: an exercise option for people with advanced Parkinson’s?
She also brought a frame running bike along to her presentation. The image below gives an idea what frame running involves.
