Experimental Treatment

This trial requires 648 total participants across 3 different treatment groups

This trial involves 3 different treatments. M2M is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will be divided into 2 treatment groups. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.

A theory-driven eHealth platform and innovative physical activity program referred to as movement-to-music (M2M), delivered customized and for the home-based for adults with physical disability. This arm also includes a social networking platform where participants will be able to interact and encourage one another through the program, as well as group-based tele-coaching session.
