Abstract

The present study assessed the physical functions of the elderly living in the community to examine differences in the functions depending on the clubs they are members of. Their performance in the following tests: the sit-up, 30-second chair-stand test (CS 30), standing on one leg with the eyes open, timed 5-meter walk test, and Timed Up & Go test (TUG), was assessed, and scores received by the elderly of “Iki-Iki 100 years old Exercise”(an exercise program to live a vibrant life until 100 years old) and “Mechanical training exercise club”groups were compared. The scores were analyzed with the age and sex as covariates, and the score in the sit-up test received by the elderly of the “Iki-Iki 100 years old Exercise”group was lower than the score of “Mechanical training exercise club”groups (p<0.01). The results suggested that more training is needed for “Iki-iki 100 years old Exercise”to strengthen the trunk.
