Sponsored under SUSS-Nunchi Marine Age Well Programme, SUSS’ team of Gerontology Professor and students visited National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan in Jul 2023 for an exchange programme and showcase of exercise ball drumming workout.
This exercise ball drumming workout was researched by National Cheng Kung University Professor Linda Li-Chuan Lin, which has shown to promote muscle movement of elderly in a non-intensive way that is appropriate for elderly. The fun and lighthearted drumming workout was then brought over to Singapore by Professor Linda and her students for a showcase at Faithacts Tanglin Halt centre in Aug 2023, and taught to our seniors to encourage them to lead a fun and active lifestyle while drumming to their favourite classical songs.
This fun-loving workout was also showcased at East Coast heartland NDP on 5 Aug 2023, and celebrated by East Coast GRC members – DPM Heng Swee Keat, SMS Tan Kiat Hao and Ms Jessica Tan.
Standing true to the name of the sponsorship programme, it was another meaningful initiative by SUSS-Nunchi Marine Age Well Programme that brought joy to ageing well backed by scientific research data.
