This study aimed at making a quality assessment of a 8 week training period for adults with physical and mental disabilities. A control group was added to compare the effect of the training with no training. Before the training period the participants were tested in relation to their physical status: weight, height, fat%, blood pressure, Aastrand test, chair stand test and waist circumference. In addition to this, the participants were instructed to wear an accelerometer to measure step and active minutes for 2-3 days a work.
The staff at the day center, where the participants works in daytime, were responsible for the physical training 2 times/week for 8 weeks. The training was an hour of combined aerobic, strength, balance and flexibility training.
The participants were tested after the training period using the same test-protocol as before.
