Senior citizens in Ireland have a significant impact on the health of the country.
The number of people with chronic health conditions, such as hypertension and heart disease, is on the rise, according to the latest figures from the World Health Organisation.
The Irish Republic has one of the highest rates of cardiovascular disease in the European Union, with more than 30,000 people in the Republic suffering from it.
While the proportion of the population that is overweight or obese is around four per cent, many people still do not realise they have a high risk of it.
In addition, the Irish health system has become increasingly reliant on mobile devices for accessing services, with the latest research showing that nearly 70 per cent of the elderly are reliant on them.
According to the European Monitoring Centre for Health and Development (EMCDDA), the main reason for this is the growing dependence of elderly people on electronic devices.
This means that they are less likely to take a rest, which is vital for health and wellbeing.
Efforts are underway to reduce their dependence on electronic products, but research has shown that the number of electronic devices used by elderly people has increased in recent years.
While it is not a direct consequence of the sedentism, the use of devices in elderly homes can have significant health implications.
The prevalence of devices, such the iPad, has risen by more than 80 per cent in the past decade.
The devices have become increasingly popular amongst older people, who often lack access to social media, and the number and use of these devices in homes is increasing.
These devices are used to read e-mails, manage social media and listen to music, among other things.
They also can be used to record audio and video.
Elderly people are particularly susceptible to this type of device use, which can cause health problems such as hearing loss, fatigue and sleep apnea.
However, there is no clear evidence that this type is linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
“A growing number of studies have shown that there is a link between electronic devices and health,” said Dr Richard McLeod, Professor of Cardiovascular Diseases at University College Cork.
“However, this link is difficult to assess because the devices are not used in isolation.
There are a number of factors that influence the health and well-being of older people.”
It is important to note that this does not mean that these devices are harmless or do not cause any health problems, as some are capable of harmful effects on the cardiovascular system.
In a study published in the journal Cardiology, researchers found that those who used an iPad to record their exercise had a higher risk of developing a type of stroke than those who did not.
The study also showed that those with chronic illnesses were more likely to use an iPad for their health-related tasks.
This suggests that the use and health of older individuals in Ireland may be compromised by their dependence upon the devices.
Dr McLeod believes that the devices should be phased out for everyone in their home.
“It is a significant concern that the sedents are used for health monitoring purposes.
This is not healthy.
The devices are being used in homes that are designed to reduce stress,” he said.
Dr David McCourt, an associate professor of medicine at University of Exeter and a specialist in geriatric medicine, added that the potential for this to increase the risk of diabetes and other chronic health problems.
“People need to get some rest and take care of themselves.
It is important that the elderly do not get sedentary and are not exposed to devices that increase their risk of health problems,” he told The Irish Post.”
I do think there are risks associated with use of electronic products in elderly people.
But we need to be aware of these risks.”
We need to find a way to limit their use, but we need them to be mindful of the risks.
