Beginning exercise for the frail person with COPD
Some persons with severe COPD are so severely debilitated and weakened they are confined to bed, or so weakened they have great difficulty getting into a chair. Ideally such patients should have initial professional help ...

Tartell says, "No matter what your age or physical condition you can benefit
from exercising in bed at any hour, whether it's morning, afternoon and even
when you awake in the middle of the night, exercising in bed
 
> No excuses - exercising in bed increases mobility and is much easier than doing it on the floor. These stretches will help energise the body in the morning and relax and calm at night.If you have any medical condition affecting joints or mobility, discuss with your doctor first.
