Cystic fibrosis-Children and adults Tai Chi study (CF-CATS II)



Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder affecting respiratory and digestive systems. People with CF experience physical symptoms; cough, poor lung ventilation, recurrent infections, poor weight gain, diarrhoea, and malnutrition, as well as lower quality of life. Tai Chi, a Chinese form of meditative movement, may help with the symptoms of CF and help people with CF to exercise. However, there is very little research in this area.
