26 Active Aging Innovations

From Customized Senior Products to Elderly Sporting Events

— September 20, 2014 — Lifestyle
These elderly sport innovations challenge the popular misconceptions of aging. With age comes wisdom and these examples prove that getting old doesn't mean one needs to give up on their active lifestyle.

Now more than ever, boomers are embracing life and living it with health and happiness in mind. For many, retirement is not an end to an era but rather a path to endless possibilities.

These elderly sport innovations range from inspiring boomer profiles that chronicle elderly yoga instructors and martial arts masters that are in better shape than the majority of their much younger opponents.

In addition to fit seniors, this list also profiles a range of innovative products that are customized to assist the elderly in active tasks. The products encourage and aid seniors in living a healthy lifestyle even if they are physically limited in doing so.
