Productive aging is a key area for research and intervention to meet the needs of our rapidly aging society. For older adults living in a skilled-nursing facility, the opportunity for productive aging is often lost as a result of physical and cognitive deficits, and the incidents of depression in skilled-nursing facilities is high. This pilot study examined the effects of a six-week therapeutic biking program designed to provide an opportunity for extended mobility outside in a social context.
