New Study: Using a Pedometer Increases Fitness for Senior Citizens

the use of pedometer increases the amount of walking for senior citizens

Using a pedometer increases walking by seniors by an average of 50 minutes per week, according to a new study.

Austin, Texas:  According to a new report, using a pedometer might motivate sedentary older adults to fit more walking into their daily routines.

Researchers found that giving older adults a pedometer along with exercise advice seemed to work better than advice alone — at least as far as encouraging “leisure” walking.  That refers to things like walking to the store instead of driving.

After a year, participants in the pedometer group had increased their strictly leisure-time walking by 50 minutes a week, on average.

“Leisure walking is seen as a manageable form of physical activity for older adults, and hence should be more actively encouraged,” said Gregory S. Kolt, a professor at the University of Western Sydney in Australia, who led the study.

Any organization that caters to senior citizens should be giving a free pedometer to its members– whether it be a retirement community, fitness center, local coffee shop, wellness center or so on.

Not only will a branded pedometer keep your name in front of your senior customers for years, but it will help them improve their level of fitness by encouraging them to walk more often.

Pedometers are an easy way to track and measure steps, so it can encourage senior citizens to reach certain “step goals” each day.

If you are a retailer, offer an imprinted pedometer free with a  minimum purchase or as part of a loyalty reward (such as free after 4 purchases of coffee, etc).

Hand out free pedometers at health fairs, investment and insurance seminars and community wellness events.

Keep seniors more active by getting them moving more frequently.

Virginia Health System Says Wellness Program Saved $3.4M– $6 Return for Every $1 Spent

Wellness program yields 6:1 ROISentara Healthcare, a Norfolk, Va.-based health system, reportedly saved $3.4 million in employee healthcare coverage costs by implementing an aggressive three-year wellness program, according to an article that appeared in Healthcare Payer News.

Executives at the not-for-profit system with 100 sites of care, including eight hospitals, said they were looking for a way to keep premiums and co-pays down for their employees, so they created a wellness plan with their insurance carrier.

“For every dollar spent to incentivize employees to improve their health, Sentara Healthcare saved $6,” said Optima Health President and CEO Michael M. Dudley.

Called “Mission: Health,” the program was launched in 2008 for more than 11,200 benefit-eligible Sentara employees in Virginia and North Carolina with nearly 80% participation rate. “The most important outcome of the wellness program for Optima Health is the difference it has made in people’s lives,” he said.

According to Sentara Healthcare Senior Vice President for Human Resources Michael Taylor, the hospital system realized that 20 percent of its employees were producing 80 percent of healthcare costs. [Read more…]
