Exercise handbook

The exercise handbook builds on guidance provided in the self-management plan to offer a practical guide to exercise.

We’re sorry, but the exercise handbooks are currently out of stock. At this moment we’re not sure when we’ll be able to fulfill large orders again, so in the meantime please use our free downloadable PDF of the exercise handbook.

The handbook includes space for the patient to keep a record of their exercises and level of fitness, helping them monitor any changes.

The exercise handbook covers:

  • How exercise can help
  • How to exercise safely
  • Positions to ease breathlessness
  • Weekly home exercise record
  • Daily walking record
