Aim: To evaluate the impact of three different strength training programs on psychological wellbeing of elderly.
Objective: The study aims to understand the physical function, body composition, mental state, behavior, depression, and life quality change of the elderly in a long-term care before and after the intervention. Four interventional activities are sitting strength training, games, sitting strength training with games, and health education.
Life expectancy and elderly population are increasing. Health professionals try to provide longevity with good quality of life for this population, through the functional independence maintenance. In this context, physical exercise has an important role, specially the strength training. The ability to produce muscle strength is positively associated with the functionality and independence of older people. Different types of strength training can lead to different neuromuscular ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate mechanisms underlying the reduction in muscle quality (the ratio between muscle strength and muscle size) with aging, and to investigate how these factors are affected by strength training and protein supplementation. It is already established that muscle quality defined as the ratio between the strength and the size of a muscle is improved with strength training, even in frail elderly individuals. However, the relative contribution o...
Physical exercise is considered an important intervention for promoting well-being and healthy aging. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effects of moderate-to-high intensity resistance training circuit on different parameters of fat mass, functional autonomy, strength and quality of life in elderly. A randomized controlled trial was conducted. A total of 45 subjects, (27 females, 18 males) aged between 65-75 years old from Murcia (Spain) were randomly to exp...
This study examines the effect of 12-week strength training program with and without testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) on body composition, physical function, selected biochemical markers of metabolic health, molecular parameters of training adaptation and the quality of life patients with ADAM. The investigators believe, that strength training program performed 2 times per week for 12 weeks can improve body composition (decrease fat mass and gain lean mass), muscle streng...
This trial studies how well strength training works in improving quality of life in patients with multiple myeloma. Weekly physical activity may improve bone recovery, reduce pain, and increase quality of life in patients with multiple myeloma.
The inexorable decline in motor skills during aging provides the investigators with an elderly population with various functional limitations. Among these, the ability to walk, being associated with the risk of falling has been studied by several authors. The adoption of strength and power training as an intervention strategy to reduce the negative effects arising from the physiological or pathological process of aging has been widely discussed in these studies. However, the ef...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the impact of strength training on sleep apneas in the elderly. Individuals aged between 65 and 80 years and that presenting apnea-hypopnea index between 20 and 50 events per hour, measured by out-of-center portable polysomnography, will be recruited. Those included will be randomized to two groups: Intervention: consisted of 12 weeks, twice a week, of strength training; or control: consisted of lifestyle recommendations.
It will be an experimental study conducted with elderly of both sexes, these will be divided randomly into three groups and the intervention will happen twice a week, for 60 minutes, for 12 weeks. The aim of the study is to compare the effect of different volumes of Pilates exercise training on muscle strength, postural balance, flexibility, functional autonomy, depressive symptoms, quality of life and lung function in the elderly community. The investigators believe that Pilat...
The increase in life expectancy of the world population is associated with a higher incidence of diseases, leading to functional incapacity and dependence in old age. Aging is usually accompanied by progressive loss of muscle mass, muscular strength and functional capacity, possibly exacerbated by inactivity and low protein and energy consumption of elderly individuals. However, the response to strength training, as well as the daily recommendation of protein and other factors ...
The objective of this pilot study is to estimate, for a frail elderly population, the extent to which balance improves following a Core-Strength training program in comparison to a Stretch & Strength program. A secondary objective is to explore the impact of core strength training on urinary incontinence.
In this randomised controlled trial, the feasibility and effectiveness of an internet-based exercise intervention including progressive strength and endurance training (e-training) for PwMS was investigated. Primary outcome was health-related quality of life, secondary outcomes were muscle strength, aerobic capacity and lung function, physical activity and fatigue.
To understand the effects of leg strengthening exercise, we will study the effects of strength training of the legs in four groups of people: (1) osteoarthritis (OA) with knee pain; (2) OA without knee pain; (3) no OA but elderly with knee pain; and (4) normal elderly with no OA or knee pain. In each of the first three groups, we will look at whether people who do strength training have less pain and/or slower progression of x-ray signs of OA over 30 months than people who perf...
Fall related injuries are major health problem which effect especially elderly population. After experiencing a fall, most of the elderly are unable to resume their previous mobility and the fear of future falls affects their daily life. Falls in elderly population are often related to balance or gait problems. The aim of this study is to assess the influence of balance training on postural and motor control of healthy elderly participants. The study is designed as a parallel i...
Exercise programs, particularly resistance training programs using weights or resistance bands, can help improve or maintain mobility and function in older adults, preserve independent living, and improve quality of life. This study will examine the safety and feasibility of a novel, higher intensity resistance training program in older adults, and compare the effects with standard care, lower intensity training. It is anticipated that both programs will be safe and feasible, b...
This research is being done to compare the physical and quality of life benefits of two different types of exercise- tai chi versus strength training- for female cancer survivors who have had chemotherapy. Each exercise- tai chi and strength training- will be compared to participants in a group that performs flexibility and relaxation exercises, which is expected to have different benefits than either tai chi or strength training.
Maximal strength training has been shown to increase muscular strength, muscular volume and work economy. An 8 week maximal leg press training regime will be conducted on cardiac heart failure patients to evaluate whether they increase their maximal leg press strength, work economy, serum testosterone and quality of life. The study hypotheses are that: 1. Aerobic work capacity will increase due to increased work economy, without increases in maximal oxygen uptake. ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of 8-week exercise training on depression symptoms, physical functions, and quality of life in the community-dwelling elderly.
This comes from a non-randomized clinical trial, which aims to check on elderly women the effects of a program of resistance training (TR) in physical performance, in respiratory functional capacity, on health and quality of life.
The purpose of this study is to verify the effects of a strength training program on functional capacity, muscle performance and microcirculation in the elderly.
Pulmonary hypertension (HP) is a progressive pathological condition presents with vascular changes in the lung. Cardiopulmonary changes in PH are considered the main limiting factor, however, it is known that the muscular alterations potentiate the symptomatology. Several HP factors and mechanisms have an impact on peripheral and respiratory muscle changes, so, specifically, respiratory muscles are also altered in patients with PH. In the face of respiratory muscle weakness, i...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether intensive one-year neck strength training can enhance health related quality of life in females with chronic neck pain.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive genetic disease characterized by recurrent airway infections, affecting many systems including lung, pancreas and sweat glands. Cough is an important defense mechanism for clearing the secretions that increase in respiratory diseases.
