Investing in an Active Future: Senior Exercise Equipment helps Champion Active Ageing

We’re pleased to share that our partner Lappset’s Senior Exercise equipment has received significant recognition in the 2023 Progress Report for the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing (2021-2030). A study conducted using Lappset products has been featured in online case studies, showcasing the positive impact of innovative outdoor fitness solutions on senior well-being.

 The UN Decade of Healthy Ageing Initiative:

The UN Decade of Healthy Ageing is a global initiative aligning with the final decade of the Sustainable Development Goals. It focuses on collaborative efforts across diverse sectors and stakeholders to enhance the lives of older adults, their families, and their communities. This initiative recognises the growing population of seniors worldwide and the crucial need to promote healthy and active ageing.


The ENJOY Project: Promoting Active Lifestyles for Seniors:

In 2021, a study titled “Exercise interveNtion outdoor proJect in the cOmmunitY for older people” (ENJOY) was conducted in Australia by Associate Professor Pazit Levinger and her team from the National Ageing Research Institute of Australia. This research project investigated the effects of increased physical activity on the health and well-being of older adults.

The ENJOY project utilised Lappset’s Senior Exercise product line, which features specially designed outdoor fitness equipment, particularly tailored to the needs and abilities of seniors or rehabilitative purposes. Participants, all aged 60 or above, engaged in a structured and supervised 12-week physical activity program incorporating these specially designed stations.


Positive Outcomes as the Catalyst for Change:

The results of the ENJOY project were truly remarkable. Participants demonstrated significant improvements in various key areas, including:

  • Physical fitness: Increased muscle strength, improved balance and coordination, and enhanced endurance.
  • Mental well-being: Reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety, improved cognitive function, and increased feelings of social connectedness.
  • Quality of life: Enhanced overall well-being, increased energy levels, and improved sleep quality.

These positive outcomes provide compelling evidence for the effectiveness of senior exercise equipment in public open space environments, in promoting active ageing and overall improved well-being. By offering safe, inclusive, and enjoyable exercise options, providing empowerment for older adults to lead healthier, happier lives.
