Let's Make Sit to Stand Exercise as Our Routine !

Reduced lower limb strength in the older adult population is associated with diminished ability to perform functional activities , increased risk of falling, increased risk of experiencing recurrent and more severe falls , and increased mortality risk. For the more frail older adult, repeated sit-to-stands may be sufficiently challenging to improve lower limb strength and reduce functional limitations. Therefore we Alpro Physio Ipoh implemented sit to stand exercise for elderly in JJ Blessing Care Centre Ipoh. Since this exercise required no equipment, the elderly can do this exercise at anytime and anywhere. Get Better ! Stay Better !

Diabetes is one of the health problems known as a "silent killer". Hard as it is to resist traditional Malay fare like lemang, rendang, ketupat and lontong, it is best not to overindulge because our body would not take kindly to it.
