CYCLING FOR BRAIN HEALTH
Regular cycling can boost brain health. It increases blood flow to the brain, which can improve memory and reasoning skills. In fact, studies suggest that cycling can increase brain volume in older adults, helping to counteract age-related brain shrinkage.

WALKING TO BOOST IMMUNITY

Walking, especially brisk walking, can significantly improve your immune system. A study found that those who walked at least 20 minutes a day, at least five days a week, had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised once a week or less.

WHEELING FOR CARDIOVASCULAR FITNESS

Using a wheelchair or similar mobility device for regular movement can provide excellent cardiovascular benefits. It helps in improving heart and lung health, similar to how running or cycling affects able-bodied individuals.
