Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to evaluate how older people, dependent in ADL perceive their participation in a high-intensity, functional exercise program compared to the perceptions of those participating in a control activity. Forty-eight older people living in residential care facilities answered a questionnaire about their perceptions of participating in an activity for three months. They were aged 65-98, had a mean score of 24 on Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) and 14 on Barthel ADL Index. The participants had been randomized to exercise (n = 20) or control activity (n = 28). Differences in responses between exercise and control activity were evaluated using logistic and ordinal regression analyses. The results show that a majority of the exercise group perceived positive changes in lower limb strength, balance, and in the ability to move more safely and securely compared to a minority of the control group (p < 0.001). Significantly more respondents in the exercise activity answered that they felt less tired due to the activity (p = 0.027) and that they prioritized this activity above other activities (p = 0.010). More exercise participants reported that meeting for three months was too short, and fewer that it was too long compared to the control group (p = 0.038). This study shows that older people living in residential care facilities, dependent in ADL, and with mild or no cognitive impairment had positive perceptions about participating in high-intensity functional exercise. The findings support the use of a high-intensity exercise program in this population of older people

Abstract [en]

Objective: The aim of this study was to systematically review the applicability (attendance, achieved intensity, adverse events) and effects of physical exercise on physical functions, cognitive functions, and activities of daily living among people with dementia.Design: Randomized controlled trials were identified in PubMed, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health, the Allied and Complementary Medicine Database, and the Cochrane Library on August 30 and September 1, 2010, according to predefined inclusion criteria. Two reviewers independently extracted predetermined data and assessed methodologic quality.Results: A qualitative analysis was performed, including ten studies. Most participants were people with Alzheimer disease in residential care facilities. Four studies reached "moderate" methodologic quality, and six reached "low." The studies of moderate quality evaluated the effects of combined functional weight-bearing exercise, combined functional and nonfunctional exercise, and walking exercise.Conclusions: Among older people with Alzheimer disease in residential care facilities, combined functional weight-bearing exercise seems applicable for use regarding attendance and adverse events, and there is some evidence that exercise improves walking performance and reduces the decline in activities of daily living. Furthermore, there is some evidence that walking exercise performed individually reduces decline in walking performance, but adverse events need to be evaluated. Among older people with various types of dementia disorders who are staying in a hospital, there is some evidence that combined functional and nonfunctional exercise over 2 wks has no effect on mobility. It seems important that the interventions last for at least a few months and that the exercises are task-specific and are intended to challenge the individual's physical capacity. Among older people with unspecified dementia disorders in residential care facilities, there is some evidence that walking exercise performed at a self-selected speed has no effect on cognitive functions. Whether physical exercise can improve cognitive functions among people with dementia remains unclear because studies evaluating this have either been of low methodologic quality or used an intervention of presumably insufficient intensity. There is a need for more studies of high methodologic quality, especially among people with dementia disorders other than Alzheimer disease.

Abstract [en]

Objectives: To evaluate the effects of a high-intensity functional exercise programme on depressive symptoms and psychological well-being among older people dependent in activities of daily living (ADL) and living in residential care facilities. Method: Cluster-randomized controlled study. Participants were 191 older people, aged 65-100, dependent in ADL and with Mini Mental State Examination scores between 10 and 30. One-hundred (52%) of the participants had a diagnosed dementia disorder. A high-intensity functional weight-bearing exercise programme and a control activity were performed in groups. Sessions were held five times over each two week period for three months, a total of 29 times. The outcome measures, Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15) and Philadelphia Geriatric Center Morale Scale (PGCMS) were blindly assessed at baseline, three and six months. Results: At baseline, mean ± SD (range) for GDS was 4.4±3.2 (0-14), and for PGCMS 11.0±3.5 (2-17). There were no significant differences in GDS or PGCMS between the exercise and the control group at the three and six month follow-ups in the total sample. Among people with dementia, there was a between-group difference at three months in PGCMS scores in favour of the exercise group. Conclusion: A high-intensity functional exercise programme seems generally not to influence depressive symptoms or psychological well-being among older people dependent in ADL and living in residential care facilities. An individualized and multifactorial intervention may be needed in this group. However, an exercise programme as a single intervention may have a short-term effect on well-being among people with dementia

Abstract [en]

Objective: To provide strategies to assist healthcare professionals in the area of rehabilitation to improve prevention of falls. Design: A conceptual framework is described as a foundation for the proposal of 2 intertwined strategies, of intervention and implementation, which target the questions: Which strategies for intervention represent the current best evidence? and: How can these strategies be implemented and continuously developed? Results: Strategies for multifactorial and multiprofessional fall preventive interventions are presented in terms of a "fall prevention pyramid model", including general, individualized, and acute interventions. A systematic global fall risk rating by the staff is recommended as an initial procedure. Fall event recording and follow-up are stressed as important components of local learning and safety improvement. Development of implementation strategies in 3 phases, focusing on interaction, facilitation and organizational culture, is described Conclusion: A well-developed patient safety culture focusing on prevention of falls will, when successfully achieved, be seen by staff, patients and their significant others as being characteristic of the organization, and will be evident in attitudes, routines and actions. Moreover, it provides potential for positive side-effects concerning organizational and clinical improvements in additional areas

Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether a high-intensity functional weight-bearing exercise program reduces dependency in activities of daily living (ADLs) in older people living in residential care facilities, focusing on people with dementia. DESIGN: Randomized, controlled trial. SETTING: Nine residential care facilities. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred ninety-one older people dependent in ADLs and with a Mini-Mental State Examination score of 10 or greater. One hundred (52.4%) of the participants had dementia. INTERVENTION: A high-intensity functional weight-bearing exercise program or a control activity consisting of 29 sessions over 3 months. MEASUREMENTS: The Barthel ADL Index; follow-up at 3 months (directly after the intervention) and 6 months with intention-to-treat analyses. RESULTS: There were no statistically significant differences between the groups regarding overall ADL performance. Analyses for each item revealed that a smaller proportion of participants in the exercise group had deteriorated in indoor mobility at 3 months (exercise 3.5% vs control 16.0%, P=.01) and 6 months (7.7% vs 19.8%, P=.03). For people with dementia, there was a significant difference in overall ADL performance in favor of the exercise group at 3 months (mean difference 1.1, P=.03) but not at 6 months. CONCLUSION: A high-intensity functional weight-bearing exercise program seems to reduce ADL decline related to indoor mobility for older people living in residential care facilities. The program does not appear to have an overall effect on ADLs. In people with dementia, the exercise program may prevent decline in overall ADL performance, but continuous training may be needed to maintain that effect.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Falls are particularly common among older people living in residential care facilities. The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to evaluate the effectiveness of a high-intensity functional exercise program in reducing falls in residential care facilities. METHODS: Participants comprised 191 older people, 139 women and 52 men, who were dependent in activities of daily living. Their mean±SD score on the Mini-Mental State Examination was 17.8±5.1 (range 10-30). Participants were randomized to a high-intensity functional exercise program or a control activity, consisting of 29 sessions over 3 months. The fall rate and proportion of participants sustaining a fall were the outcome measures, subsequently analysed using negative binominal analysis and logistic regression analysis, respectively. RESULTS: During the 6- month follow-up period, when all participants were compared, no statistically significant differences between groups were found for fall rate (exercise group 3.6 falls per person years [PY], control group 4.6 falls per PY), incidence rate ratio (95% CI) 0.82 (0.49-1.39), p=0.46, or the proportion of participants sustaining a fall (exercise 53%, control 51%), odds ratio (95% CI) 0.95 (0.52-1.74), p=0.86. A subgroup interaction analysis revealed that, among participants who improved their balance during the intervention period, the exercise group had a lower fall rate than the control group (exercise 2.7 falls per PY, control 5.9 falls per PY), incidence rate ratio (95% CI) 0.44 (0.21-0.91), p=0.03. CONCLUSIONS: In older people living in residential care facilities, a high-intensity functional exercise program may prevent falls among those who improve their balance.

Abstract [en]

PURPOSE: To determine if a high-intensity functional exercise program improves balance, gait ability, and lower-limb strength in older people dependent in activities of daily living (ADL), if an intake of protein-enriched energy supplement immediately after the exercises increases these effects of the training, and if the exercise program reduces falls. RELEVANCE: Impairments in physical functions among older people can lead to dramatic consequences for the individual such as admission to nursing home, falls and fractures. High-intensity exercise programs are effective to improve physical functions among older people but knowledge is limited concerning the effects for older people with severe cognitive or physical impairments. PARTICIPANTS: 191 older people dependent in ADL, living in residential care facilities, and with a Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score of ≥ 10 participated in this study (the FOPANU Study). METHODS: The participants were randomized to a high-intensity functional weight-bearing exercise program (the HIFE Program) or a control activity, including 29 sessions over 3 months, as well as to protein-enriched energy supplement or placebo. Berg Balance Scale, usual and maximum gait speed, and one-repetition maximum in lower-limb strength were followed-up at 3 and 6 months by assessors blinded to group allocation. Fall rate and the proportion of participants sustaining a fall during the six months following the intervention were the outcome measures of the fall preventive effect of the exercise program. ANALYSIS: The intention-to-treat principle was used. Balance, gait ability, and lower-limb strength: 2 x 2 factorial ANCOVA. Falls: Negative binominal analysis and logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: At 3 months, the exercise group had improved significantly in usual gait speed compared with the control group (mean difference 0.04 m/s, P = 0.02). At 6 months, there were significant improvements favoring the exercise group for Berg Balance Scale (1.9 points, P = 0.05), usual gait speed (0.05 m/s, P = 0.009), and lower-limb strength (10.8 kg, P = 0.03). No interaction effects were seen between the exercise and nutrition interventions. When all participants were compared, no statistically significant differences between groups were found for fall rate (exercise group 3.6 falls per person years and control group 4.6 fall per person years) or the proportion of participants sustaining a fall (exercise 53% and control 51%). A subgroup interaction analysis revealed that among participants who improved their balance during the intervention period, the exercise group had a lower fall rate than the control group (exercise 2.7 falls per person years and control 5.9 falls per person years, incidence rate ratio 0.44, P = 0.03). CONCLUSIONS: A high-intensity functional exercise program has positive long-term effects in balance, gait ability, and lower-limb strength for older people who are dependent in ADL. An intake of protein-enriched energy supplement immediately after the exercises does not appear to increase these effects of the training. In addition, the high-intensity functional exercise program may have an effect in preventing falls among those who respond to the intervention. IMPLICATIONS: High-intensity functional exercise can be offered to improve physical functions among older people who are living in residential care facilities and have severe cognitive or physical impairments.
