Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most prevalent and lethal of all muscular dystrophies. Boys with DMD experience limitations in physical activity and poor sleep. This project provides information about levels of physical activity to enhance nighttime sleep and overall well-being in boys with DMD.
