About the elderly

About the elderly

Old age consists of ages nearing the average life span of human beings, and thus the end of the human life cycle. Euphemisms and terms for older people include advanced adult, elderly, and senior (chiefly US) or senior citizen and pensioner. Older people have limited regenerative abilities and are more prone to disease, syndromes, and sickness than other adults. For the biology of aging see senescence.
Old age cannot be defined exactly because it does not have the same meaning in all societies. In many parts of the world, people are considered old because of certain changes in their activities or social roles. For example, people may be considered old when they become grandparents or when they begin to do less or different work. In the United States, people are often considered old if they have lived a certain number of years. Many Americans think of 65 as the beginning of old age because United States workers become eligible to retire with full Social Security benefits at age 65. People in the 65-and-over age group are often called senior citizens. Starting in the year 2003, the age at which a person becomes eligible for full Social Security benefits will increase gradually until it reaches age 67 in 2027.
Worldwide, the number of people 65 or older is increasing faster than ever before. Most of this increase is occurring in developing countries. In the United States the percentage of people 65 or older increased from 4 percent in 1900 to about 13 percent in the late 1990's. In 1900, only about 3 million of the nation's people had reached 65. By 1998, the number of senior citizens had increased to about 34 million. Population experts estimate that more than 50 million Americans--about 17 percent of the population--will be 65 or older in 2020. The number of elderly people is growing around the world chiefly because more children reach adulthood. In most parts of the world, women live, on average, longer than men. In the United States in the late 1990's, life expectancy at birth was 80 years for women and 73 years for men. American women who were age 65 in the late 1990's could expect to live about 19 additional years. Men who were 65 could expect to live about 16 additional years.

ArthriStep  Insoles, Pair

ArthriStep Insoles, Pair - $7.95 USD

The pounding foot shock associated with walking can aggravate arthritis pain in knees, legs, hips, and joints. With an average of over 2 million steps each year, the body's natural defense system is overwhelmed, leading to arthritis pain. Constructed of two layers of advanced Enduron foam, specially padded ArthriStep Insoles provide extra protection where it's needed most, and mold to the contours of your foot for maximum comfort. Order by shoe size above.

Opti•Balance  Inserts, Pair

Opti•Balance Inserts, Pair - $19.95 USD

Lower body pain can result from improper arch support and misalignment of your heel and forefoot as you walk. When this happens, feet can hit the ground off balance, causing ankles to roll inward, pulling your entire lower body out of alignment. Our Opti•Balance inserts cradle, stabilize, and support your feet as you walk. Under the heel, a special Vari-Wedge works with a biomechanically designed arch support system to help control incorrect foot motion, so your feet hit the ground more evenly, keeping your lower body in proper alignment. Opti•Balance Inserts feature a premium leather-like top cover. Click here to view the benefits of the Opti Balance Insert.

Bort  Achilles Support, Each

Bort Achilles Support, Each - $49.95 USD

Slip on this three-dimensional, form-knitted nylon/cotton support. For sufferers of Achilles tendonitis, the wrap applies compression, stimulating circulation and healing. Two built-in medical-grade silicone gel pads massage the affected Achilles tendon, while a third pad absorbs heelshock. An additional heel pad inserted into the other shoe evens out your step. Determine size by measuring the circumference of ankle, just above the ankle bone. Order by ankle measurement above.
