Abstract Background In 2017, our team highlighted promising results of a giant exercising board game on physical activity level and a broader array of physical and psychological outcomes among nursing home residents. However, some improvements of this game were needed to make it more suitable for nursing homes and more challenging in terms of exercises. Therefore, we decided to develop a new version of a giant exercising board game: the GAMotion. Objectives The primary objective of this pilot st...

Background: Motivational climate in exercise group environments would have an impact on adherence, effort and enjoyment. We examined the motivational climate among nursing home residents who were involved in group exercise sessions. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in 10 nursing homes of Liege area that offer group exercise sessions. Sociodemographic data (age, sex, body mass index), cognitive status (by the Mini Mental State Examination) and independence in activities of daily ...

Competition has been shown to improve motivation and physical performance in young people. This method has been rarely studied in older people. To evaluate the feasibility of senior physical activity (PA) contests between two nursing homes and to assess changes in the motivational level and physical performance of the residents over time. Residents from two Belgian nursing homes were invited to participate in PA contests. A pretest and three contest sessions were organized over a period of 3 mon...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that older people can experience a considerable change in their physical performance (PP) over time. OBJECTIVES: To identify PP trajectories and their association with mortality among nursing home residents who were followed up for 3 years. DESIGN: Three-year longitudinal observational study. SETTING: Subjects of the SENIOR cohort. SUBJECTS: Six hundred and four nursing home residents with a mean age of 82.9 +/- 9.1 years. METHODS: Baseline characteristics...

Summary Background & aims This systematic review aims to systematically assess and summarize the equation models developed to estimate muscle mass with bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) instruments against a reference instrument (DXA, MRI, CT-scan, Ultrasonography), in order to help researchers and clinicians choose the most adapted equation, depending on the device and the population in question. Methods The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis (PRISMA) statemen...

Abstract Objective To correlate peak expiratory flow (PEF) with the incidence of frailty, deaths and falls among nursing home residents. Methods This is a 1-year longitudinal analysis performed on the clinical data of the SENIOR cohort. PEF, measured by peak flow meter, was considered as “low” when the observed value was ≤80% of the theoretical value. Physical capacity was evaluated using Short Physical Performance Battery, balance and gait using Tinetti test and muscle strength using a dynamome...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to evaluate the predictive value of the domains of intrinsic capacity (i.e. cognition, locomotion, sensory, vitality and psychosocial) proposed by the WHO on the 3-year adverse health outcomes of nursing home residents. METHODS: A 3-year incidence of mortality, falls, repeated falls and autonomy decline (i.e. a one-unit increase in the Katz score) was assessed in a cohort of Belgian nursing home residents. Cognition was assessed using the MMSE. For locomotion, balanc...
