About this event

Have you found it more difficult to maintain mobility and fitness during the Covid 19 pandemic. What are the physical effects of going back to work and sitting at a desk. In the last year we have all had to adapt our exercise routine to changing circumstances and sometimes that’s difficult.

This practical session offers you information and advice on how to stay moving in the era of COVID-19, when for some the restrictions have make movement and exercise more challenging.

Join us in a session facilitated by physiotherapists Dave Powney and Jude Simms from Move4ward. The Move4ward team are based in Elgin and specialise in helping people with neurological conditions to maintain mobility, strength, balance and function.

We will explore specific exercises for your symptoms and offer some recommendations around exercises we should all do on a regular basis. You can ask any questions you have about what you can do to keep moving or, if you prefer, you can submit a question before the event when you register.

What will I need to take part?

All you need to join in is a laptop/tablet/phone/computer with a stable internet connection to use Zoom, the video meeting software that we use.

How do I join the webinar?

Before the event we will send you an email which will have a link to the webinar which is held via Zoom. The email will also tell you how to ask questions and make comments during the webinar. At the time the webinar is due to start, click on the link and you will be taken to the webinar. If the session hasn’t started you will see a message to tell you this. Just hang on and when the session starts you will see 2 or 3 people pop up on your screen.

What if I haven’t been sent the link?

We send an email with a link to everyone who completes the registration form on Eventbrite and books a place. The email we send might go into your spam or junk folder so please check before the meeting starts that you can find it.

When I join the webinar can other people see or hear me?

No you can’t be seen or heard by other participants.

Can I ask questions?

Yes usually you can ask questions and make comments. The facilitator will tell participants about how to do this. When there are more than 100 participants, our licence will only allow the first 100 people to ask questions during the event.

Please note we can’t respond or offer advice to questions about your specific circumstances or anything relating to your own personal health. Questions will be collated and we will try to cover your queries if not your specific question.

What should I do if I can no longer attend?

If you find that you are unable to take part please get in touch at selfmanagement@mssociety.org.uk so we can offer up your place to someone else.

After the webinar you will be invited to take part should you wish in an informal chat session to discuss what you have taken away from the webinar.
