Comparison of Home-based Exercise Programmes for Falls Prevention and Quality of Life in Older Adults

2016-10-07 00:08:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study compares the effects of three home-based exercise programmes in "at-risk to falling" older adults living in their own home on the incidence of falls (number and severity), risk factors, and quality of life as well as on the adherence to exercise. The subjects will be randomized and allocated in three groups. The group A will receive the "Test-and-Exercise" home-based programme (T&E), the group B will receive the "Otago" home-based exercise programme and the group C (activ-control group) will receive the "Helsana" booklet

Description

Home-based exercise programmes appear to reduce rate of falls, number of fallers, risk of falling and risk of death and to improve balance, leg strength, function, physical activity and balance confidence in older adults living in the community.

The Test-and-Exercise home-based programme (T&E) contains 50 tests and 50 exercises to improve balance, strength and ability in older adults. It is especially built for older adults and is based on the concept of self-efficacy and empowerment. The originality of this programme is the evaluation of the difficulty perceived of the balance-exercises. It is delivered on a booklet which investigators had good experience with in our pilot study, with pictures and descriptions of each test and each exercise. Investigators also developed a mobile application. This application will be transmitted on a tablet-computer. In addition, the participants will receive cards with pictures of the exercises, to put into a plastic sheet to have an overview of their own exercise programme. This programme will be implemented from especially trained physiotherapists.

The Otago home-based exercise programme was developed in New-Zeeland in the 2000's to prevent falls in older adults. It proposes 22 exercises and walk training. The physiotherapists give an exercise prescription at each home visit. It shows good results for decrease falls in older adults, but the exercise adherence decrease also with the time.
