Yvonne Veenhuizen, Alexander Geurts, theme Neurorehabilitation, Baziel van Engelen, theme Disorders of movement, and colleagues, showed that Energetic improves participation in patients with neuromuscular disease. They have published their results in Neurology.
Many patients with a neuromuscular disease (NMD) have chronic fatigue and need support to manage daily activities and social participation. In the renowned medical journal Neurology Veenhuizen et al. showed in a randomized controlled trial that Energetic, a self-management group program combining aerobic training, energy conservation management, and relapse prevention, significantly improves social participation and functional endurance in patients with NMD and chronic fatigue. It was a multicentered study that showed that this program can be implemented in different health care settings in the Netherlands.
