CitationThe effect of cognitive function on mobility improvement among community-living older adults: A 12-week resistance exercise intervention study. 2019, 1-12. doi: 10.1080/13825585.2019.1623167 Neuropsychol Dev Cogn B Aging Neuropsychol Cogn
AbstractThe purpose of the study was to investigate the association between baseline cognitive function and improvement in mobility after 12 weeks of resistance training (3 times/week; 3 sets, 6-8 repetitions at 75-80% of the 1-repetition maximum) among community-dwelling older adults in Iceland (N=205, 73.5±5.7 years, 57.0% female). Body composition, physical activity status, cardiovascular risk factors, 6-minute walk test (6MWT), and Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) were measured. The linear regression model was used to examine the association between baseline MMSE and mobility improvement. Mean distance of 6MWT was 462.8±71.6 meter at baseline and mean change after the exercise intervention was 33.7±34.9 meter. The mean MMSE score at baseline was 27.6±1.9. After adjusting for baseline covariates, we found that baseline MMSE score was significantly associated with improvement in mobility among older adults after the exercise intervention. Cognitive function strongly influences the effect of exercise intervention on mobility among older adults.
