This feasibility study investigates if frail elderly and hospitalized patients are able to perform unsupervised elastic band exercises as a supplement to their usual supervised physiotherapy sessions and how much training they perform during their hospitalization. It is also investigated how the frail elderly and the health personnel experiences the unsupervised elastic band exercises.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Older adults or aged individuals who are lacking in general strength and are unusually susceptible to disease or to other infirmity.

A type of CARTILAGE whose matrix contains ELASTIC FIBERS and elastic lamellae, in addition to the normal components of HYALINE CARTILAGE matrix. Elastic cartilage is found in the EXTERNAL EAR; EUSTACHIAN TUBE; EPIGLOTTIS; and LARYNX.

Connective tissue comprised chiefly of elastic fibers. Elastic fibers have two components: ELASTIN and MICROFIBRILS.

Therapeutic exercises aimed to deepen inspiration or expiration or even to alter the rate and rhythm of respiration.

Housing arrangements for the elderly or aged, intended to foster independent living. The housing may take the form of group homes or small apartments. It is available to the economically self-supporting but the concept includes housing for the elderly with some physical limitations. The concept should be differentiated from HOMES FOR THE AGED which is restricted to long-term geriatric facilities providing supervised medical and nursing services.
