Abstract Purpose:<\b>
To examine the effectiveness of a three-stages physical training program on fear of falling and daily physical activity for community-dwelling old-old Japanese women. Methods:<\b>
After giving written informed consent, the subjects, unable to stand on one leg for more than 20 seconds with eyes open, were divided into a 3 times/week group (HFG; 13 females, 81.5±2.7 yrs, BMI 22.8±1.6) and a 1time/week group (LFG; 10 females, 81.7±3.2 yrs, BMI 21.9±1.3). The program was composed of three stages for 16 weeks. First, participants learned about management skill for their physical soreness. Second, they learned to strengthen their core and lower leg muscle using an elastic band. The last stage was to learn a three-minute arm and leg combined exercise program with music. One-leg standing time with eyes open, knee extension strength, and fear of falling score were obtained. Daily physical activity was measured by pedometer in the first and last 7days during the intervention period. Student’s T-test and two-way repeated measures ANOVA were used to test the effectiveness. RESULTS: The class participation were 82±4% and81±8% respectively. Fear of falling score(P=0.034),, daily steps( HFG: 3864±747 to 4454±632steps, LFG: 3831±832 to 4001±860steps, F=5.28,P=0.032) improved significantly in HFG. ADL-related functional fitness (P=0.002), one-leg standing time with eyes open(P=0.000), knee extension strength(P=0.040), also improved significantly in HFG.CONCLUSIONS: Three-stage physical training program was effective for fear of falling score and daily physical activity by old-old Japanese females.
