Project Summary

This study aims to develop and evaluate a complex home based exercise intervention for people with Huntington's Disease (HD). Components of an existing intervention will be refined in terms of methods of delivery and appropriate support mechanisms and incorporated into a 16 week randomized and controlled multi-centre Phase II study where functional, motor, cognitive and behavioural outcomes will be evaluated. Adherence will be documented and exploratory health economics analysis undertaken.
