Despite recent reductions in the prevalence of disability, the number of chronically disabled Americans 65 years of age or older currently exceeds 7 million.1 Because disability is associated with increased mortality2 and leads to increased rates of adverse outcomes, such as hospitalization, admission to a nursing home, and use of formal and informal home services,3-6 it places a substantial burden on elderly persons, informal caregivers, and health care resources.7,8 Therefore, interventions designed to prevent functional decline have the potential not only to generate large health care savings9 but also to lead to important reductions in the physical, emotional, social, and financial problems attributable to disability.

The finding supports the idea that it is possible to maintain good physical functioning by multi-component exercise program and thus postpone the age-related functional problems. Further evaluation is needed to determine the cost effectiveness of this program and to identify means by which it exerts a beneficial effect. The primary outcome was the change between base line and 3, 7, and 12 months in the score on a disability scale based on eight activities of daily living: walking, bathing, upper- and lower-body dressing, transferring from a chair, using the toilet, eating, and grooming.

Describe the influence of the care environment on physical function… These analyses were repeated separately for participants with moderate frailty and those with severe frailty. Scores for the Mini–Mental State Examination (MMSE) can range from 0 to 30, with lower scores indicating worse cognitive status.15 Results are given as means and 95 percent confidence intervals. 2020 May 26;12(6):1549. doi: 10.3390/nu12061549. The present article reports the main results of the Task Force discussions to generate a new paradigm. Other feasible strategies for patients who are unwilling or unable to perform volitional exercise comprise neuromuscular electrical stimulation, vibration, and blood flow restriction. In contrast, in an analysis of participants with severe frailty, the disability scores at 7 and 12 months were not significantly different between the two groups (Figure 1C). However, they should ideally be applied synchronously with voluntary exercise to obtain synergistic benefits. Medical and long-term care costs when older persons become more dependent.
