4D Life has been created by a team of experienced health and fitness specialists.
The team share a passion for helping people with medical conditions to make the most of life.
It took two years of collaboration to ensure the programme covers all the important topics and key information, to help people living with Parkinson’s manage their condition.
The programme is designed to sit alongside and interlink with the information given by your medical team, forming part of the multidisciplinary approach needed to deliver improved outcomes.
