Abstract
Background: Good training of lower limb muscle endurance can prevent and postpone the occurrence of fall, reduce the risk of mortality, and increase the ability of independence and autonomy in daily-life activity among older adults. Objectives: The study aimed to test the effect of an elastic-band resistance training exercise on lower limb muscle endurance among older adults. Methods: The study adopted a two-group pretest-posttest quasi-experimental design. A convenience sample of community-dwelling older adults aged 65 and over in Beitou District of Taipei City, Taiwan was recruited. The 200 participants were assigned into the experimental and wait-list control group based on their own will. The baseline data of BMI, waistline, and body fat ratio were measured. The intervention of an elastic-band resistance training exercise was conducted at least one time per day at 60 minutes per practice session for one week. The 30-second chair stand test was evaluated at baseline and at the end of the study. Results: Controlling for the covariates significantly different in the baseline between two groups, the 30-second chair stand test of participants in the experimental group significantly increased 2.31 times than that of the participants in the control group at the end of the intervention (p < 0.001). Conclusions: It is recommended that elastic-band resistance training exercise be promoted in the community to improve lower limb muscle endurance in older adults. Keywords: Older adults, resistance training, lower limb muscle endurance.
