Stay Active with NRS Mobility Aids

Why it is important to keep fit as you age

We all know that exercise and keeping fit is essential for good health and weight management. But as you grow older exercise can become more difficult, prompting many people, particularly those over the age of 60, to stop exercising altogether.

Recent facts show that those over 65 are the most sedentary age group, spending an average of ten hours or more per day sat down. While energy naturally declines as you get older, a lack of activity can soon start to take its toll, with simple activities such as walking to the shops and playing with grandchildren steadily becoming that bit more difficult.

Inactivity can lead to a loss of independence and actually makes it more difficult to move around; those who get very little activity are actually more vulnerable to falling than people who regularly get some exercise.

How can NRS mobility aids help you to stay active?

For those that struggle with mobility, the prospect of exercising may seem like an impossible dream. But here at NRS we have a huge range of mobility products to suit any requirement; whether you just need a little support or require a wheelchair to get around; our extensive selection of products includes everything you could need to help you move about independently.

Any exercise or activity is better than none at all, so no matter how much you struggle with mobility, NRS have the products and equipment to help. Rollators are an excellent mobility walker, providing the support you need when out and about while being easy to use and control.

For those that have difficulty standing or must remain seated for long periods, the pedal exerciser is perfect; allowing users to strengthen their leg muscles while exercising at the same time. In fact, exercises that cause the muscles to work harder than normal actually improve muscle tone which, as a result, can help to improve mobility.
