Mobility and Movement:

Commonplace objects, homes, and communities that weren't initially created with longevity in mind frequently impede movement, freedom, safety, and sociability. For older people, staying safe and active is of utmost importance.


Products, programs, and services are required to help people maintain their independence, safety, strength, balance, fitness, and mobility as they age.

Issues and Challenges

  • Muscle weakness
  • Joint problems
  • Impaired strength and balance
  • Chronic ailments
  • Symptoms of motor neuron disorders
  • Inflammation

Advice

Warm-up and cool-down. Any exercise plan should include a warm-up and cool-down. Warm up with some basic stretches before working out to prepare your body for movement. When we start exercising, the body will benefit more from the exercise if our joints are more flexible and mobile thanks to stretching. In addition to preventing muscle fatigue and stiffness after exercise, cooling down also improves coordination.

Low impact on cardio. A healthy cardiovascular system is promoted by aerobic activity. Keeping the cardiovascular system in good shape promotes longevity and mobility. Swimming, kickboxing, and Zumba are a few activities that will keep people moving while still being enjoyable.

Stretch. Stretching is crucial as you age for muscle healing and mobility. Stretching increases the range of motion in the joints and aids in maintaining your body's flexibility. The fascia tissue that connects the tendons, muscles, bones, and blood can be released by stretching frequently.

Work on balance and coordination. It is essential to work on and improve your balance and coordination if people want to avoid the risky falls that so many older folks are prone to. Lightweight exercise, yoga, and Tai chi are a few methods to enhance coordination and balance.

Practice proper posture. Maintaining flexibility and strength requires regular practice at maintaining a neutral spine. Seniors frequently have poor posture, which makes it very challenging to maintain an active lifestyle.

Planning senior interventions that may be done at home or online is made easier with the aid of Geriatric counselling.
