Abstract

この研究の目的は,ライフスタイルと運動能力および,生活機能,社会的属性間の関連を明らかにすることで,測定に参加したのは高齢男女221名(平均年齢76.5歳)である。性,年齢,家族構成,要介護状況,身体的状況を聴取し,ライフスタイル22項目,生活機能13項目に関して質問紙を用いた面接調査を行い,運動能力は3項目を測定した。ライフスタイル良好群は,不良好群に比較して運動能力,生活機能の成績が高く,ライフスタイルと運動能力,生活機能,身体的状況とは相互に有意な関連が認められた。ライフスタイルは運動能力や生活機能に規定されているとともに運動能力,生活機能,身体的状況の低下を予防することを示唆している。<br>

This study investigated the relationships among lifestyle, motor ability, functional capacity and social attributes based on data obtained from community dwelling elderly persons. The number of elderly men and women participating in the study was 221 (average age: 76.5 years). Haga's Quesionaire-22 was used as an indicator of lifestyle, with 22 points or higher (perfect score) indicating a healthy lifestyle. Information on 3 items of motor ability, 13 items of functional capacity and 5 items of social attributes was also obtained. The results of the analysis indicate that subjects with better lifestyle had higher average scores for motor ability and functional capacity than those with poor lifestyle. Lifestyle, motor ability, functional capacity, and physical condition were significantly correlated with each other. These results suggest that improvement of lifestyle in old age is considerably effective for preventing decline in functional capacity, motor ability and physical condition.<br>
