迎接老化社會,日本搶搭輕老商機

許多國家將少子化、人口老化視為國安危機,積極端出政策牛肉鼓勵生育,但人口紅利或許已經是上世代的經濟模式,面對一個人口結構變化的事實趨勢,應該以不同的角度,找到經濟成長的動力。科爾尼管理咨詢公司在日經新聞投書表示,老者不是無所用,現在人壽命長,但活得更健康,生活也更活躍,也更富裕,能對經濟與社會做出貢獻。

人口炸彈快引爆! 新加坡成東協高齡化最嚴重的國家

國際中心/綜合報導

新加坡是東協(ASEAN)人口高齡化程度最嚴重的國家,並將於2018年開始倒計時「人口結構計時炸彈」,65歲或以上的人口佔比將首次超越15歲或以下的人口,成為最新一個面臨此處境的國家。

據《彭博》報導,新加坡大華銀行(United Overseas Bank Ltd)經濟學家Francis Tan於6日發布最新的研究報告顯示,新加坡65歲或以上的人口佔比將在2018年首次超越15歲或以下的人口,「快速高齡化的人口及勞動力,使新加坡面臨獨立以來最嚴峻的經濟及社會挑戰」,稅收、移民法規、社會服務等都將有所變化,政策改革已勢在必行。

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the physiological strain index (PSI) for different age groups during exercise-heat stress (EHS). PSI was applied to three different databases. First, from young and middle-age men (21 ± 2 and 46 ± 5 yr, respectively) matched (n = 9 each,P > 0.05) for maximal aerobic power. Subjects were heat acclimated by daily treadmill walking for two 50-min bouts separated by 10-min rest for 10 days in a hot-dry environment [49°C, 20% relative humidity (RH)]. The second database involved a group (n = 8) of young (YA) and a group (n = 7) of older (OA) men (26 ± 1 and 69 ± 1 yr, respectively) who underwent 16 wk of aerobic training and two control groups (n = 7 each) who were matched for age to YA and OA. These four groups performed EHS at 36°C, 40% RH on a cycle ergometer for 60 min at 60% maximal aerobic power before and after training. The third database was obtained from three groups of postmenopausal women and a group of 10 men. Two groups of women (n = 8 each) were undergoing hormone replacement therapy, estrogen or estrogen plus progesterone, and the third group (n = 9) received no hormone replacement. Subjects were over 50 yr and performed the same EHS: exercising at 36°C, 40% RH on a cycle ergometer for 60 min. PSI assessed the strain for all three databases and reported differences were significant at P < 0.05. This index rated the strain in rank order, whereas the postacclimation and posttraining groups were assessed as having less strain than the preacclimation and pretraining groups. Furthermore, middle-aged women on estrogen replacement therapy had less strain than estrogen + progesterone and no hormone therapy. PSI evaluation was extended for men and women of different ages (50–70 yr) during acute EHS, heat acclimation, after aerobic training, and inclusive of women undergoing hormone replacement therapy.

跌停! 「123毛巾操」K.O.骨鬆增肌力

2017-12-06 健康醫療網╱記者程加敏報導


台灣骨鬆人口比例,做123毛巾操可幫助增加肌力。

台灣即將進入超高齡化社會,長照成為重要的議題,而對於長者來說,保住「骨本」成為迫切的問題。台灣骨鬆肌少關節防治學會與台塑企業暨王詹樣公益信託合作,舉辦「強保老」社區檢測活動,結果發現台灣50歲以上民眾,每三人中即兩人為骨鬆骨折高風險,確診罹患肌少症的比例近四成五,罹患膝關節炎比例也超過六成;因此特別設計「123毛巾操」,讓長者增加肌力、遠離骨鬆。
