Physical activity to promote long-term health and well-being is a global public health aim for all, including people with disabilities. Physical activity can help prevent the onset of lifestyle conditions such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes as well as secondary complications associated with disabling conditions, such as pressure sores, muscle weakness and depression. However there is growing evidence that people with disabilities participate in lower physical activity levels than the general population. The short paper by Gross, Kroll and Morris examines the extent to which community physical environmental barriers exist in exercise facilities in a large geographical area in North East Scotland.
