Lawrenceville, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2019 -- Goodwill Home Medical Equipment carries a wide range of gently-used, donated medical supplies in Philadelphia. These types of equipment include various forms of walking aids to help seniors with their daily exercise routines. A simple physical activity, such as walking, provides many benefits and can significantly improve senior health.

While seniors face different medical concerns, it is essential for them to exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Seniors often find it difficult to carry out day-to-day activities on their own and become reliant on their walking aids, such as canes, walkers, and rollators to get around. Once they invest in safe walking aids, moderate level, low-risk exercises can be performed, such as walking. The benefits of walking should not be underestimated, as it is something most people take for granted. Especially for seniors, walking can improve cardiovascular health by lowering the risk of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. This goes hand-in-hand with weight management. Regularly walking increases the metabolism, which helps to burn calories needed for weight loss.

Another key benefit of walking is that it reduces pain associated with arthritis. Opting to stay indoors and lounge for the majority of the day leads to stiffness of the joints and muscles. Alternatively, when the body is forced to mobilize, the joints become loosened, which can reduce pain caused by inflammation.

Those who wish to donate unused medical supplies will help individuals in need of equipment required for day to day routines. Contact Goodwill Home Medical Equipment for more information at 609-812-2210.
