Insufficient physical activity is associated with an increased risk for chronic diseases with a high disease burden and contributes to frailty and loss of independence in old age. Thus, the incorporation of exercise as a preventative and therapeutic measure should be adopted in the health care setting. For this Special Issue, we are seeking research papers on the role of exercise and physical activity in medical care for individuals of all ages, both those in the general population and those in special disease populations. Possible endpoints can include disease-related objectives and patient-related outcomes. Papers on the implementation and evaluation of care concepts, including exercise, are also of interest.
