The subject of physical activity and sport in persons with hemophilia has always been of great interest for FedEmo. Over time FedEmo has organized several projects in this area. The FORTE project, for example, was addressed to training a significant number of physiotherapists from the whole national territory, in order to encourage hemophilic patients to do a constant physical activity through specific exercises dedicated to them.
Or the Maratona project, thanks to which, after a preliminary and tight monitoring of their clinical conditions and an appropriate period of physical training, a significant group of hemophiliacs patients (some of them with one or more joint replacements) successfully ran the New York Marathon in 2015.
