Hi, I'm Julia Perry, I head up the Community and Wellbeing Services for Mental Health Concern, a charity in north east England. The Elders Council in Newcastle invited me to a presentation on active ageing and it transformed my thinking around our services for older people.

Thanks for joining
Question for Tommy: I don't understand what service/product you offer. And what is the price?
Hi, I'm Simon Luddington, CO at SEARCH in Newcastle, we are an older persons charity in the West of Newcastle. We usually provide a range of Community Activity including exercise. We have sent out activity packs which include gentle exercise routines, feedback we have had from some of the people we support is that they are concerned that they will loose ability to do some of the things they usually do, due to not being able to walk distances, keep up their routines.
For clarification - is it a wearable like a Fitbit or Apple Watch that tracks more parameters like exertion and heart rate (and steps) -- is the individual required to enter what activity they are doing?
Love the initiative Tommy and Prof Thompson! The science is clear, BUT how do we/ Ki Avitv plan to raise it's head above the 'Sea of Sameness' amongst a plethora of fitness, health and wellbeing apps and so-called solutions? Kenny Butler, Physiotherapist
Thank you for the questions so far. I will put them to the speakers.
Please keep them coming
Surely the old recommendations factored in how active people were in the day to achieve tasks like walking up stairs, doing the laundry etc and from that recommended 150mins of additional activity time? What would your recommendation of how active someone should be? This is taking me back to my degree, great presentation
I've seen physical activity referred to from an "asset allocation" perspective - that there are different components of physical activity that we all need to work on as we age. Things like balance, strength, aerobics, etc. Do you look at physical activity from different parameters in your platform?
That slide of muscle mass if you maintain exercise is one of the most compelling arguments I can imagine to show people the benefits of physical activity!
Also interesting to look at impact of inactivity on other conditions e.g. risk of pressure sores
amazing to see the data
Also shows the need to do physical activity before periods of rest e.g. operations and recovery afterwards
Absolutely Tim, the evidence around prehab and rehab is a very interesting area we are also involved in
Really interesting session - thank you both. Just off to another meeting
curious - to be answered at a later date - have you done studies of how much technology has reduced our basic physical activity - so the baseline was much higher 50 years ago vs today. Thanks! GREAT presentation!
Thanks Eric, Tommy and Dylan - great session!
Great meeting! Thank you
