As we know, incorporating exercise into your life can help alleviate RA and JIA symptoms and improve mental and emotional health. 

NRAS is one of the partners on a Virtual Community Rehabilitation (VCR) project led by Good Boost which will delivering support to those living with MSK conditions in the form of peer-led, virtual group exercise classes. The project will utilise technologies demonstrated to alleviate pain and improve quality of life and allow anyone to benefit from the comfort of their own home. 

Once fully developed, the App will enable people with RA or JIA to use their smartphone or tablet to join fun, engaging, peer-led, virtual group exercise classes with others who share similar experiences.
