Many adults aged 65 years and over spend on average 10 hours or more each day sitting or lying down, making them the most sedentary age group.
Research has shown that this level of inactivity for long uninterrupted periods can lead to low mood and boredom this also has a negative impact with higher rates of falls, obesity, heart disease and early death compared with the general population.
As people get older, it becomes even more important to remain active to stay healthy and maintain independence.
