Benefits of moderate to vigorous exercise for improving the health and functional ability of older adults

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Due to the ageing population of many developed countries, strategies to assist older adults maintain their health and functional wellbeing would appear
crucial, not only for these individuals, but also as a possible way to reduce national healthcare expenditure. One such approach may be the promotion of habitual and therapeutic physical activity (exercise). Within many developed countries, walking and Tai Chi appear to be the most often encouraged forms of exercise for older
adults.
