Recent research out of the University of Wisconsin is confirming that walking regularly assists in the prevention of the disease. TrekDesk treadmill desks get people out of their chairs and moving again which will reduce their odds of developing ARMD.
Women who were the most active registered a 54% lower risk of ARMD. Those who were most active and ate a healthy diet had a 71% decreased risk of developing ARMD. Mares and her colleagues believe that walking and proper diet contributed to reductions in blood pressure, inflammation and oxidative damage which would contribute to the preventative results.
