Site Summary: The mission of the National Center on Physical Activity and Disability (NCPAD) is to promote substantial health benefits that can be gained from participating in regular physical activity. The slogan of NCPAD is Exercise is for EVERY body, and every person can gain some health benefit from being more physically active. This site provides information and resources that can enable people with disabilities to become as physically active as they choose to be.

The National Center on Physical Activity and Disability (NCPAD) is funded through a four-year grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  NCPAD’s mission was created from the consensus that physical activity is a key to optimal health, that inactivity is a serious health concern for people with disabilities, and that people with disabilities are at greater risk than the general population for developing secondary health conditions due to sedentary lifestyles.  A major constraint to creating specific exercise guidelines for persons with disabilities is the lack of available information. The information that does exist is poorly organized and spread over a wide range of venues.  As a result, researchers, practitioners, and consumers seeking this information have great difficulty finding the resources they require.  The NCPAD website, http://www.ncpad.org, features NCPAD’s Research Citation Database, which contains references for journal articles, newsletters, book excerpts, and hyperlinks to websites as well as NCPAD’s Fact Sheets and Bibliographies on topics relating to specific activities and disabilities.  NCPAD’s website also provides a national resource directories of facilities, programs, and events concerned with physical activity and disability.  NCPAD is currently developing exercise modules which will allow website visitors to customize a fitness regime according to a disabling condition and their preferences for aerobic, flexibility, or strength training.
