Physical activity and quality of life in older adults: Influence of health status and self-efficacy
Association between physical activity and quality of life in the elderly: a systematic review, Gislaine C. Valter C. Moreira 1. To review information regarding the association of physical activity PA with quality of life QoL in the elderly and to identify the study designs and measurement instruments most commonly used in its assessment, in the period
Adam Drewnowski, William J. WE live in an aging society. Not only is 1 in every 8 Americans older than 65 years, but a person aged 65 can expect to live an average of 18 more years 1. Continued good health of the elderly population is a major challenge to public health 3. Increased longevity is associated with an increase in multiple chronic conditions that sometimes translate into functional disability and need for assistance 2. The extra years can be marked by declining health, reduced mobility, depression, isolation, and loneliness 4. Health and functioning of older adults are influenced by many factors other than biological senescence.

Background : Physical activity has been positively linked to quality of life QOL in older adults. Measures of health status and global well-being represent common methods of assessing QOL outcomes, yet little has been done to determine the nature of the relationship of these outcomes with physical activity. Purpose : We examined the roles played by physical activity, health status, and self-efficacy in global QOL satisfaction with life in a sample of older Black and White women. Structural equation modeling examined the fit of 3 models of the physical activity and QOL relationship. Specifically, physical activity influenced self-efficacy and QOL through physical and mental health status, which in turn influenced global QOL. Subsequent tests of hypothesized relationships across time are recommended.
Physical Exercise Training Improves Quality of Life in Healthy Older Adults: A Meta-Analysis
The current meta-analysis first aimed to quantify the overall effect of physical exercise training on the quality of life QoL in healthy older adults. Second, the effects on the social, physical, and psychological QoL were assessed. In total, 16 randomized controlled trials were included. These findings warrant implementation efforts pertaining to exercise training for older adults to improve the QoL in our aging societies.
Physical activity is associated with health-related quality of life HRQL in clinical populations, but less is known whether this relationship exists in older men and women who are healthy. Thus, this study determined if physical activity was related to HRQL in apparently healthy, older subjects. Data was collected using a medical history questionnaire, HRQL from the Medical Outcomes Survey short form questionnaire, and physical activity level from the Johnson Space Center physical activity scale. Healthy older adults who regularly participated in physical activity of at least moderate intensity for more than one hour per week had higher HRQL measures in both physical and mental domains than those who were less physically active. Therefore, incorporating more physical activity into the lifestyles of sedentary or slightly active older individuals may improve their HRQL.
Metrics details. Physical activity has been consistently associated with enhanced quality of life QOL in older adults. However, the nature of this relationship is not fully understood.
In this special issue of BioMed Research International, the focus is on lifestyle and in particular physical activity PA as a driver for a healthy and long life for older people.

Я все. - Довольно, Грег, - тихо сказал Стратмор. Хейл крепче обхватил Сьюзан и шепнул ей на ухо: - Стратмор столкнул его вниз, клянусь. - Она не клюнет на твою тактику разделяй и властвуй, - сказал Стратмор, подходя еще ближе. - Отпусти .
Он пристально посмотрел на нее и постучал ладонью по сиденью соседнего стула. - Садись, Сьюзан. Я должен тебе кое-что сказать. - Она не пошевелилась. - Когда я все закончу, я сообщу тебе код вызова лифта. И тогда ты решишь, уходить тебе или. Повисла долгая тишина.
Войду, возьму его и тотчас выйду. Давай ключ. - Мидж… Она прекратила печатать и повернулась к. - Чед, список будет распечатан в течение тридцати секунд. Вот мои условия.
