The current study included 96 participants whose age was 66 years and over with Alzheimer’s disease. The participants divided into two groups, one of which, of 64 people, took part in supervised cycling exercise classes 3 times a week for 6 months.

Another group, of 32 people, took part in supervised stretching and motion exercise classes, which matched to the cycling group in terms of the regularity of the classes and prolongation, but the intensity was low.

Prof. Fang Yu, Edson Chair in Dementia Translational Nursing Science at the Arizona State University Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation, and corresponding author of the study says: “Our primary finding indicates that a 6-month aerobic exercise intervention significantly reduced cognitive decline in comparison to the natural course of changes for Alzheimer’s dementia.”
