This proposal is a randomized control trial using innovative interactive health technologies to promote and sustain walking behavior among elderly patients. The technology uses an Embodied Conversational Agent (ECA), a computer character that simulates face-to-face conversation. The trial will be block randomized by literacy status and include an intensive two-month, daily contact intervention via a Tablet PC ECA in the subject's home, an automated telephone program, and then a...
The elderly are the fastest growing proportion of the population. Ageism implies a decline of physical functions affecting functional and safe ambulation. Based on the ICF model intervening in walking capacity could have favourable impact on quality of life of frail elders. Over ground walking training is indicated as a possible exercise. However, to achieve positive results on walking capacity, an exercise-dose response is needed. A more intensive way of promoting walking trai...
This will be a phase IV, open label, multicenter, randomized pragmatic study in frail elderly patients with COPD. Participants will be treated with either inhaled LABD alone or LABD combined with inhaled glucocorticosteroids. The main aim of the study is to assess whether, in elderly patients with COPD and one or more cardiac comorbidities (heart failure, and/or ischemic heart disease, and/or atrial fibrillation) recently hospitalized because of an acute exacerbation of COPD, 1...
The aim of this study is to evaluate sit-stand phases and gait speed detection using an externally worn LINQ compared to an external reference (3D accelerometer, and/or the Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN) system) in one center in the Netherlands
The primary purpose of this study is to test an Internet based program along with an enhanced pedometer to promote walking in people with diabetes. The major research question to be answered is if counseling and feedback that emphasizes a 10-minute minimum duration for physical activity bouts result in a different pattern of walking behavior compared to counseling and feedback focusing only on total daily accumulated steps.
The task of caring for an individual with Alzheimer's disease is often carried out by elderly caregivers who, due to their motor and psychosocial alterations due to the aging process, may also be exposed to the development of the frailty syndrome. Therefore, it is necessary to promote the engagement and adherence of these caregivers in physical activities. In this sense, circle dances have received attention, either as a modality of physical activity or therapy, and, although l...
Importance: Aging is characterized by numerous molecular, physiological, functional, motor and psychological changes, such as loss of postural balance and reduced muscle mass/strength. Such modifications often lead to reduced physical-functional capacity in the elderly and increased risk of falls. Currently, physical exercise is widely used to improve physical performance and reduce, at least in part, postural instabilities and the risk of falls. In this context, the Pilates me...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether individualized social activities, physical resistance training and walking, and a combination of both are effective in improving nighttime sleep in elders with dementia.
This study evaluates the effects of exercise intervention on muscle strength and walking speed for the community-dwelling elderly. Half of the participants will receive exercise training, while the other half will maintain their usual activities of daily living.
This project aims to study the effect of haptic sensory information delivered at the hand using a cane in "light touch" or "light support" condition on postural stability and spatial and temporal gait parameters of elderly subjects with and without walking difficulties
The purpose of this study is to test the routine feasibility of an image tool adapted from the WELCH questionnaire ( Walking estimated limitation calculated by history) to estimate walking impairment (The WELSH questionnaire: Walking estimated limitation stated by history) in patients investigated for walking impairment. Secondary aims correlation with the maximal walking distance.
The number of elderly has been increasing in recent decades. Current studies focused on the risk factors of poor physical performance, poor daily activity performance, and even disability in the elderly. We planned to evaluate the physical performance of elderly dwelling in the community and designed a multimodal exercise program which can improve physical performance, prevent disability and promote quality of life.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a neuroplasticity-based computerized cognitive training for the elderly
This study is being conducted in Sonoma County, California. Gastrointestinal illness and diarrhea are recognized as a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the elderly. One study showed that 51% of deaths caused by diarrhea over a 9-year period occurred in individuals over the age of 74 years. Although many infectious diseases are more problematic in the elderly because of a decline in immune function and a higher incidence of pre-existing malnutrition and dehydrati...
This is a multi-center prospective follow-up study. - to choose the stable COPD patients in community - to compare different modes of exercise (cycling and walking) - to compare the effect of different exercises on the quality of life,exercise endurance,dyspnea and depression
Three arms of experimental design were used: Pedometer walking training (PWT), positive education and pedometer walking training (PEPWT), and pedometer walking (PW). Trained walking exercise was provided by a physical education expert three times per week, 45 minutes per session. Positive education was designed and led by a licensed psychologist. Six sessions of activities targeted participants' self-strength, competence and self-efficacy in walking exercise; positive relations...
Stroke is one of the most common chronic disabling conditions in Hong Kong. People after stroke may suffer from certain degree of physical impairment and disability. Resuming safe ambulation in the community appears to be a big challenge to them as it always involves the simultaneous performance of two or more tasks (dual task) such as walking and talking with someone, walking and recalling the shopping list etc. Numerous studies has demonstrated that the interference from dual...
The aim of this study is to investigate whether an incentive scheme is a feasible approach to increase walking/cycling to school.
This study will evaluate a walking model of osteoarthritis for use in testing of new therapeutic agents.
The aims of this study are to (1) examine the medication use patterns of commonly prescribed hypnotics and the factors that were associated with the long-term and short-term use patterns among the elderly population in Taiwan; (2)investigate the associations of using hypnotics with the elderly patients' disease statuses, efficacy and safety, as well as its pharmacokinetic and pharmacogenetic characteristics;(3) determine the clinical, economic and humanistic outcomes of using h...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether alerts independent of the ambulatory health record are more effective in eliciting physician responses and therefore have greater impact on HIV disease outcomes than traditional static alerts.
The purpose of this study is to detect changes in circulatory I-FABP values (50% increase) in elderly volunteers following the combination of moderate physical activity and a standard meal.
The main objective of this study is to determine if oral supplementation of Citrulline, when combined with walking training, can produce significant changes in body composition, muscular function and functional capacity in older obese men and women . The investigators hypothesize that Citrulline combined with walking training will be more beneficial than walking training alone which will be more beneficial than citrulline alone which will be more beneficial than placebo alone...
The goal of the present study is to look at the effect of changing walking parameters on the dynamic walking characteristics among children post severe traumatic brain injury, and typically developed controls.
Stroke is the leading cause of severe disability in adults. The first cause of alterations in the quality of life and autonomy in these patients are disorders of walking and the balance. They are the leading cause of falls responsible for important medical, surgical and economic complications as well as a reactionary social isolation. The techniques of rehabilitation of walking to the subacute phase of a stroke are usually based on automatic walking.Off walking is a complex ac...
