OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between dynamic balance functions in young adults and elderly adults while standing and walking. DESIGN In standing balance tests, the Sensory Organization Test (SOT) of six combinations of three visual and two support-surface conditions was used to measure standing balance, and the Motor Coordination Test (MCT)(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of home-based exercise without home visits on physical function, falls, and bone mineral density in community-dwelling elderly women. Sixty community-dwelling, elderly (> or =65 years of age) women were recruited from a Japanese community. Subjects were randomly assigned to a home-based exercise(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to determine the reference value for the Timed Up and Go test (TUG) in healthy Japanese elderly people using the methodology of meta-analysis, and to determine the value for different measurement protocols. METHODS Relevant research articles were identified from electronic databases: MEDLINE, Cumulative Index to Nursing(More)
BACKGROUND When assessing respiratory muscle strength using sniff nasal inspiratory pressure (SNIP), it is important to consider ethnic differences. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the mean values and lower limits of normal for SNIP in the Japanese population. OBJECTIVE To determine the mean values and lower limits of normal for SNIP, which is(More)
OBJECTIVES Reference values for hand grip strength in Japanese community-dwelling elderly independent in activities of daily living (ADLs) were calculated by meta-analysis. METHODS Papers reporting data on hand grip strength in elderly Japanese adults ≥60 years of age and independent in ADLs were retrieved from electronic databases. Data were extracted(More)
Compared to the general population, Parkinson's disease (PD) patients have a higher risk of hip fracture and secondary osteoporosis. In the general population, it is known that physical performance is related to bone density. However, the relationship between bone density and physical performance in ambulatory PD patients has not been studied. This study(More)
OBJECTIVE Recent studies have demonstrated gender differences in functional outcome after stroke. However, the underlying reasons for differences have been inconsistent. The present study examined whether gender differences in long-term functional outcomes exist among surviving patients with first-ever ischemic stroke and with individual subtypes of stroke.(More)
OBJECTIVE We examined the effect of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) on bone strength in osteoporotic elderly residents. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a randomized controlled trial. Elderly residents with osteoporosis in a long-term care facility were treated with LIPUS (oscillation frequency 100 KHz) that involved treatment of the heel bone for 2(More)
[Purpose] The aim of this study was to determine the reference values for the chair stand test (CST) in healthy older Japanese people. [Methods] Relevant research articles for the 5-repetition chair stand test (CS-5) and the 30-second chair stand test (CS-30) were identified by electronic database and manual searching. Research articles involving healthy(More)
