As our parents and grandparents live longer, it becomes more important for them to maintain health and wellbeing, leading to the best quality of life possible. Regular physical activity, including aerobic activity, muscle-strengthening activity and flexibility are essential for health and wellbeing. By engaging in these types of physical activities, our parents and grandparents help themselves reduce the risk of chronic disease, improve cognitive function, and prevent or delay disability.
Improve and maintain the quality of life through strength, fitness, and flexibility. As you develop your idea, consider developing solutions for daily living activities such as:
- Getting up from a seated position
- Getting up out of bed
- Long walks
- Going up and down stairs
- Balancing when walking and standing
