What are the 5 types of seating exercises for seniors with limited mobility?
There are more than 5 exercises for seniors with restricted mobility, but I believe the best ones are:
• Raising arms
Hold a ball between your hands. Lift your arms slowly. Raise the ball to shoulder height. Lower it back to your legs while sitting down.
• Rolling wrists and ankles
Your feet should be flat on the ground, and you should not lean against the chair back. Roll your wrists ten times in each direction by opening and closing your fists five times each. Then, roll your legs ten times in each direction.
• Knee Marches
Sit tall on your chair. Place your feet on the ground and your hands on the edge of the seat. Bend your right knee and lift your right leg as high as you can towards your chest. Switch between legs after 8-10 merchants.
• Seated Rows
Place your feet flat on the ground. Sit on the edge of the chair with your arms out in front. Bend your elbows while your thumbs are facing upwards. To aim for the upper back and chest muscles, pull your elbows back and squeeze your shoulder blades together. Repeat 8-10 times.
• Seated Torso Twist
Seat tall with your feet on the ground. Bend the elbows and put your hands behind your head. Slowly twist your upper body to the left and right as far as possible.
