The purpose

The increase in both muscle strength and the ability to perform tasks of day-to-day work environment and are well-characterized benefits of this type of training. The literature has been investigating the effectiveness of the RE for humans, yet few studies have been conducted with intellectual disabilities (ID).

In particular, the ID is less active and is more likely to develop secondary diseases.
