Forty-eight minutes of moderate exercise per week was associated with improvements in physical function and a decrease in the risk for immobility in older, sedentary adults, according to researchers at Tufts University.
In a study published in PLOS ONE, researchers reported that varying levels of exercise for adults aged 70 years to 89 years resulted in improvements to all participants. However, those who received more exercise saw greater changes. The study is part of the Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders (LIFE) study.
