Exercise on a treadmill can help improve heart health, lower blood pressure and even improve cognitive function, according to new research from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
The new study, published in the journal BioMed Research International, shows that the treadmill exercise also has the potential to boost a patient’s overall health.
“Treadmill treadmill exercise has been shown to improve the brain function, physical performance, and overall health,” said study author Dr. Scott P. Sondheim, assistant professor in the UW School of Medicine.
“This study demonstrates that a treadmill with a screen exercise mode can have an even greater impact on cognition and physical health than treadmill exercise alone.”
In the new study published in BioMed, participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups: one that had a treadmill screen exercise program, and the other that did not.
Participants received treadmill exercise, and their doctor supervised the workouts.
The results showed that the patients in the screen exercise group showed a significant improvement in cognition, compared to those who did not participate in the program.
“These results show that the screen treadmill exercise can help a patient to improve their cognitive function and improve their overall health, which is very promising,” said Sondheimer.
In addition, the treadmill screen session led to significant improvements in physical fitness, blood pressure, and blood glucose.
“The screen exercise also improved cognition, and it was not associated with any of the other side effects that people might have,” Sondellisaid.
Sondheim also noted that the results also showed that there were no adverse side effects to the screen-exercised patients.
“We believe this study could be helpful for patients who have cognitive problems, and that it could help them in terms of helping them make decisions about whether to get a physical therapy,” said P.S. Sogn, a graduate student in Sondheit’s lab.
Sontheim also said that the study was one of the first to examine the potential of treadmill screen exercises to improve cognition in patients with cardiovascular disease.
“For example, this is one of several studies showing that the exercise helps improve cognitive performance and the ability to work out with exercise,” Sontheim said.
“Our research shows that it’s possible to improve cognitive functioning in patients without a medical reason to be depressed.”
Sondheit said that future research could also focus on whether the screen exerciser could help with other neurological conditions.
“If you can get the patient to move in a certain way, the brain can think in a way that the patient can move and can move in ways that the brain does not normally move,” Sothill said.
“They can also make decisions in a different way.
It may be that the people in this study had problems with some of the cognitive disorders that we’re seeing in the general population.”SONDHILL ISSUESThe UW-Madison researchers say that the potential benefits of treadmill exercise are also significant for people with diabetes.”
Because the heart rate is higher during treadmill exercise compared to walking, the amount of blood pumping through the body is increased,” Sonderheim said, “so it’s really important to do this in an exercise that’s high-intensity, low-intensity,” SONDHIMS.
“You can do it by walking.
So, it’s a very high-energy activity.”
I think people with Type 1 diabetes might benefit from having exercise with a high intensity, but I also think they could benefit from doing this in a less intense, but still high- intensity way,” Sondehthed.
The UW researchers said that they plan to continue their research to see if the treadmill activity could be used to help improve people with Parkinson’s disease.
