The Rising Challenge

Duration of Sitting

EFFECTS OF AGEING ON SITTING behaviour

Losing the ability to stand up may lead to avoidance of moving around, further inactivity and longer sitting.

A recent not yet published study involving 884 subjects revealed a significant increase in sitting duration with ageing in the 81- 100 age group compared to the 71-80 age group (Figure 2).

Recent studies have suggested that breaking up prolonged sitting may improve glucose metabolism and could represent an important public health and clinical intervention strategy for reducing cardiovascular risk [8–11] and mortality [12], which underscores the importance of maintaining the ability to stand up from a sitting position. Data Source: https://research.vu.nl/ws/...

Activities for older adults - The best way to improve senior mobility The sit to stand exercise

This simple home exercise is the best for mobility and independence.

The ability to stand up from a chair makes a huge difference in everyday life for seniors. It helps with essential activities like getting up from the toilet, out of bed, and out of a chair.

That’s why the sit to stand exercise is probably the best of the mobility exercises for seniors. It’s a functional exercise for that exact movement and strengthens leg, core, and back muscles – all needed to increase mobility and independence as well as improve balance.

Elderly Independence

Distribution (percentage) of persons aged 60 years or over by type of household living arrangement, for regions, circa 1990 and circa 2010. A recent not yet published study involving 884 subjects revealed a significant increase in sitting duration with ageing in the 81- 100 age group compared to the 71-80 age group (Figure 2).

Elderly Independence
Elderly people Europe are most independent –
27% above elderly from 60 years old and above live by their own
49% Live with a Spouse only
20% Live with their children

In the UK the numbers are quite similar to the European statistics:
Around 30% Live by their own, 50% live with a spouse only and a bit more than 10% live with their children.

How to Support, Encourage, and Maintain Elderly Independence

Elderly independence is an important part of ageing. Find out how you can help the seniors in your life to be happy, healthy, and safe in their own homes by lending a hand with small- and large-scale tasks that will make their lives easier and fuller.

It’s not uncommon for seniors and young adults alike to worry more about losing their independence more than the actual ageing process. While gaining wisdom, experience, and advancing in your career and family life may all seem appealing, losing the ability to care for yourself and your home can make the positives a little bit harder to enjoy.

Key trends in population ageing and the living arrangements of older persons

The global population aged 60 years or over numbered 962 million in 2017, more than twice as large as in 1980 when there were 382 million older persons worldwide. The number of older persons is expected to double again by 2050, when it is projected to reach nearly 2.1 billion. In 2030, older persons are expected to outnumber children under age 10 (1.41 billion versus 1.35 billion); in 2050, projections indicate that there will be more older persons aged 60 or over than adolescents and youth at ages 10-24 (2.1 billion versus 2.0 billion).
Globally, the number of persons aged 80 years or over is projected to increase more than threefold between 2017 and 2050, rising from 137 million to 425 million.

How technology can improve the lives of older people

Although they might find it difficult at first, older people are beginning to use modern technology. In fact, according to the Office for National Statistics, 41% of adults aged 75 years and over were recent internet users in this year’s study. In the findings, recent internet use among women aged 75 and over had almost trebled from 2011.

How to buy

Our equipment is available for purchase by private individuals as well as professionals.
Professionals: Available direct, complete the booking form below to arrange your free, no-obligation assessment.
Private individual: Dependant on your means, it may be available free from your local Council.
It is always worth contacting your local Social Services to see what support is available to you.

If you live in a non-Council owned home, you may be eligible for a Disabled Facilities Grant. This is discretionary funding provided by the Government through the local Council and does not have to be paid back. It is subject to certain eligibility criteria. However, the cost of our stairclimbers (comparable to a quality stairlift) means it may be available through the local Council through other channels eg equipment stores, depending on your local Council’s policies.

If your home is owned by the local Council, you may be able to have the equipment free through other sources. Contact Social Services for guidance.

The Council will most likely arrange for you to be assessed by an Occupational Therapist, who will look at what changes/ equipment you need to be able to continue to undertake daily living activities (ADLs).

More information is available here:
https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/..
https://www.gov.uk/disabled..
https://www.independentliving.co.uk/

Alternatively, there are many charities that may either fund or purchase the equipment for you. Details can be found here:
https://www.disability-grants.org/..

For private purchase, we would need to visit to assess you, and your home to determine the most appropriate configuration for you.
This is completely free, with no obligation. Please complete the form below.
