Resistance Bands

Resistive bands and resistance bands are physiotherapy aids that can be used to improve strength in certain areas of the body. They can be very effective in helping you to rehabilitate after injury or simply to increase strength and muscle tone if you have a particular weakness. Because they're portable, lightweight, and easy to take anywhere, resistance bands are a very versatile therapy aid. They tend to vary in intensity, allowing you to work as hard you like, and pace your workouts. You can use resistance bands to wrap around ankles and wrists, and slowly push against them to stretch and work your muscles.

Resistance bands for the elderly

It’s recommended that elderly individuals continue to get exercise as they age in order to remain as healthy and mobile as possible. With resistance bands, you can increase strength, stability and flexibility in the comfort of your own home. With just a few simple exercises, resistance bands can produce excellent results. If you’ve noticed your elderly loved one has reduced movement, offer them some resistance bands to try and get them moving again.

Variety of resistance bands

If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to resistance bands (also called resistive bands), you have plenty of options available to choose from at Complete Care Shop. Varying in intensity levels, you can start off with an easier level of resistance and work your way up. Or, choose something like the Phoenix Fitness Strong Resistance Tube Band Set, which has paddled handles for a more comfortable and controlled grip.

Aiding recovery and rehabilitation

Resistance bands are not just designed for increasing strength, but they can be used for rehabilitation and recovery too. Speak to an occupational therapist or your physiotherapist to discuss how resistance band workouts and exercise can lead you down the path to recovery.

Resistance bands are elastic bands made of rubber or latex that provide varying levels of resistance when stretched. They are versatile tools for strength training and rehabilitation. For elderly individuals, resistance bands can offer several benefits:

  • Improved muscle strength: Resistance bands allow seniors to engage in low-impact strength training, helping them build and maintain muscle mass, which is crucial for maintaining mobility and independence.
  • Enhanced joint flexibility: Performing exercises with resistance bands can improve joint flexibility and range of motion, reducing the risk of stiffness and discomfort.
  • Safe and gentle: Resistance bands provide a safe and gentle way to strengthen muscles without putting excessive strain on joints, making them suitable for seniors with various fitness levels and abilities.

Selecting the appropriate resistance bands involves considering your specific needs and fitness levels. Here are some factors to keep in mind:

  • Resistance level: Resistance bands come in various levels of resistance, typically categorised by colour or intensity. Start with lighter resistance bands and gradually progress to higher resistance levels as strength improves.
  • Safety features: Look for bands with comfortable handles or loops to ensure a secure grip, reducing the risk of accidental slippage during exercises.
  • Quality and durability: Invest in high-quality bands made from durable materials to ensure longevity and safety during workouts.
  • Instructions: Some resistance band sets come with exercise guides or instructional videos, which can be particularly helpful for seniors who are new to using them.

There are several safe and effective resistance band exercises that elderly individuals can incorporate into their fitness routine. These exercises can help improve strength, flexibility, and overall mobility. Here are a few examples:

  • Seated leg raises: While seated, loop a resistance band around your feet and gently lift one leg at a time, engaging your thigh muscles.
  • Bicep curls: Sit on a chair with the band under your feet, hold the handles, and perform bicep curls by bending and straightening your elbows.
  • Shoulder presses: Place the resistance band under your feet and hold the handles at shoulder height. Press your arms upward, extending them fully.
  • Seated rows: Sit with your legs extended, place the band around your feet, and hold the handles. Perform rowing motions by pulling the handles toward your torso while keeping your elbows close to your sides.
