Brief Summary:
Resistance training and aerobic exercise have been recommended for sarcopenic patients. However, whether balance training would further benefit for sarcopenic patients on the basis of resistance training and aerobic exercise remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of balance training on improving the mobility of elderly patients with sarcopenia. Balance training involves doing exercises that strengthen the muscles that help keep the aged upright, including the legs and core. These kinds of exercises can improve stability and help prevent falls.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Effect of Balance Training on Mobility and Activities of Daily Living in Sarcopenic Inpatients Aged 80+Years
Actual Study Start Date : June 1, 2017
Actual Primary Completion Date : July 1, 2019
Actual Study Completion Date : November 1, 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: experimental group Behavioral: balance training
The training to improve balance is to work on the core muscle groups that help to maintain your posture.,and increase muscular strength.

Behavioral: resistance training
Resistance training is a form of exercise that improves muscular strength and endurance. During a resistance training workout, you move your limbs against resistance provided by your body weight, gravity, bands, weighted bars or dumbbells.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fall rates [ Time Frame: One year ]
    The incidence of falls during the first year of follow-up

  2. The change of activities of daily living [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
    Basic activities of daily living (BADL) assessed by Barthel Index


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The change of usual gait speed [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  2. The change of handgrip strength [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  3. The change of the score of Short Physical Performance Battery [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
    The Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) is an objective assessment tool for evaluating lower extremity functioning in older persons.

  4. The change of the score of Timed Up and Go test [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
    The Timed Up and Go test (TUG) is a simple test used to measure basic functional mobility and safety with mobility.
