A Randomized Controlled Trial on the Effect of Exercise on Physical, Cognitive and Affective Function in Dementia Subjects
Studies have shown conflicting results of the effect of exercise on dementia patients.
The aim of this study is to examine the role of physical activity on the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia in older persons.
To promote the benefits of aerobic exercise on dementia patients and encourage exercise prescription in the management of dementia subjects.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Physical Education And Training
Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of two different types of exercise, aerobic exercise training (AET) and resistance exercise training (RET), on quality of life (QoL) in...
Randomized study on the comparison between aerobic training versus progressive resistance training over a 2 months period for older adults with type 2 diabetes. The hypothesis is that prog...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effects of different amounts and intensities of aerobic exercise training programs, with and without weight loss, in people who are at risk for...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of resistance training, aerobic training, and combined aerobic and resistance training on percent body fat, measured using Magnetic Res...
Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a common syndrome characterized by several central hemodynamic and peripheral vascular and muscle abnormalities including autonomic imbalance, neuro-hormonal...
Abnormally elevated exercise blood pressure is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Aerobic exercise training has been shown to reduce exercise blood pressure. However, it is u...
BACKGROUND: Aerobic exercise training is known to increase red blood cell production; however, this has not been evaluated in breast cancer patients undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy (CT). The purpose...
