Keep Physically Active at Home with our Self-Management Project

In October last year, Haemophilia Scotland launched the Self-Management Project.

The Self-Management Project aims to ensure that people affected by haemophilia and other rare bleeding disorders are fully supported in self-managing their condition, enabling you to develop an improved quality of life.

As part of the project, we were planning on running face-to-face focus groups, pain management workshops and physiotherapy sessions to participants. However, with the outbreak of COVID-19, we’ve had to adapt the project as not all of it is feasible under lockdown.

In place of gym memberships for participants, we are excited to announce that if you have registered for the project and have had a physiotherapy appointment where your physiotherapist has drawn up a tailored exercise plan for you, we may be able to help in purchasing the exercise equipment that you need for it. E.g. dumbbells, resistance bands, exercycles.

We can only assist those who have an approved exercise regimen from their physiotherapist. If you would like an appointment to get an assessment and tailor-made exercise regimen, we will be able to arrange an online appointment with a physiotherapist for you.

If you haven’t registered for the project yet, it’s easy to register and FREE to take part in!
