It is undoubtedly  easier to prevent disease than to treat it, and likewise cheaper”.

  • “It is generally accepted that physical activity will in all likelihood

          delay the rate of aging and thus improve the quality of life.

 

  • “We recommend the APT  to enhance physical capabilities,

           and to improve the quality of life

 

THESIS CONCLUSION:

  • “Exercising with the APT  improves the mobility rate and therefore the degree of

            self-sufficiency in the performance of daily tasks.”
