Motion Wellness Senior Fitness Equipment
Motion Wellness Systems is a line of senior fitness equipment designed and manufactured in the USA to help reduce fall-related injuries by improving stability, balance and coordination. It also provides opportunities for social interaction between users, so it becomes fun, encouraging, and effective.
The World Health Organization (WHO) statistics indicate that one-third of people over 65-years-old experience one or more falls each year, and the frequency of falls increases with age. Falls are the most common cause of injury and the sixth leading cause of death for seniors; almost half of long-term care facility admissions are fall-related.
In 2010, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported the total direct medical costs of fall related injuries for people 65 and older, adjusted for inflation was $30 billion. The CDC claims that by 2020, the annual direct and indirect cost of fall related injuries is expected to reach $54.9 billion. Among community-dwelling older adults, fall related injuries are one of the 20 most expensive medical conditions.
Xccent Fitness strives to improve the aging population’s quality of life. We encourage senior home communities, care facilities, senior centers, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes and hospitals to implement Motion Wellness Systems and to encourage senior residents and patients to use it daily. The Motion Wellness System can be installed outdoor as well as indoors. Users will improve the quality of life and gain confidence performing daily life functions.
