Hi all! Can anyone help me? I have been scouring the internet for a chair exercise DVD that is Region 4. There are millions with Region1, these can only be played in USA and Canada. If anyone has any ideas please let me know as we only have one chair exercise dvd and everyone is getting very annoyed with it!

Jennifer just an idea, I run our exercise class four days a week, I set the program up by looking at our residents physio programs and putting together a collection of exercises they do with the physio aid. I am lucky enough to be allowed to download music through ITunes so I picked out music with a beat and our residents follow me with the exercises, our physio aid helps the residents that require someone to physically help move limbs. our residents love it and as I do it in a central area our care staff join in as they are walking past. I have many residents who ask me daily during morning room visits, are we doing our huffs and puffs today. we often get some of the hostel residents joining us and they love it. (just a suggestion and it is a lot cheaper than buying professional disc)
