  • By far the most popular new addition to the passive exercise category is whole-body vibration or WBV -- also known as "Power Plate" exercise. An outgrowth of a program used to train Russian cosmonauts, it quickly spread through Europe and Japan, then hit U.S. shores -- with whole centers now devoted to this workout.

    Oja and his colleagues wanted to expand upon existing research about the benefits of physical activity. Some studies have tested the effects of exercise intensity, suggesting that vigorous exercise, like running, has greater health benefits than passive exercise, such as walking to work. Other studies looked at the short-term effects of exercise on health -- for example, how a six-week exercise program improved participants' well-being -- but they didn't show the long-term effects, Oja said.

  • Since varicose veins swell because blood pools in them, the best treatment is to empty blood from the veins. Any program of regular exercise stimulates circulation, and helps prevent varicose veins. However, most intense activity may increase blood pressure in the legs and accentuate varicose veins. Low impact or passive exercise are excellent therapy as they
    are gentle to the joints and lower extremities yet very effective.

    Prevention of the loss of joint motion is much less costly and time-consuming than correction of tissue changes that seriously impair joint mobility. It is recommended that each joint should be put through its full range of motion three times at least twice daily. If the patient is not able to carry out these exercises, he is assisted by a therapist or member of the family who has been instructed in the exercises. Inflammation of the joint, as in arthritis, may cause some pain on motion, and so passive exercises are done slowly and gently with the joint as relaxed as possible. Procedures that stretch tight muscles to increase joint motion should be done only by a skilled therapist who understands the hazards of fracture and bleeding within the joint, which can occur if the exercises are done improperly or too strenuously.

  • 1. Passive exercise. If the child cannot move the limb at all, either you can do it for him ...

    or he can move the limb through its full range with another part of his body.

    Studies indicate passive exercise is extremely beneficial, especially to those who are unable to do aerobic type exercise. Passive exercise is also beneficial for those who do aerobic type exercise, as it helps loosen muscles before an intense workout. It also helps to use as a cool down after a workout. Although passive exercise does not increase the heart rate or burn as many calories as true aerobic exercise, you can still enjoy many other remarkable benefits. Both passive and aerobic exercise can increase circulation, oxygenate the blood, help with the production and release of nitric oxide and endorphins. It also helps move the lymph fluid, which can be beneficial to the immune system.

Be proactive: Too many leaders consider listening to be a passive exercise. Getting to the core of your employees’ frustrations means 1. Asking the right questions (such as, “How do you feel about the method we used to share the news with the staff?”) and, 2. Providing tangible solutions (for example, suggesting sharing major decisions via a company-wide email, so everyone is kept in the loop.)
