About

There are no studies in the literature reporting the dyspnea, posture, strength, physical activity, functional mobility and balance in elderly individuals. The aims of this observational study are; 1) to evaluate dyspnea, posture, strength, physical activity, functional mobility and balance in elderly individuals, 2) to reveal the relationships between these parameters of research group.

Full description

The increase in the elderly population brings with it many health problems, especially in older ages. Rates of limitation and disability are increasing in elderly individuals due to chronic diseases. Many of these changes negatively affect their daily living activities. With aging, respiratory muscle strength and respiratory surface area decrease in the cardiopulmonary system. Respiration is negatively affected by the decrease in muscle strength. Postural correctness cannot be easily achieved in elderly individuals due to deterioration in bone, muscle and joint structures. Functional mobility and balance problems are observed with changes in postural control that occur with aging. There are not enough studies in the literature to clarify this issue that evalatues dyspnea, posture, strength, physical activity, functional mobility and balance in elderly individuals. Therefore, the aim of our study is to evaluate dyspnea, posture, strength, physical activity, functional mobility and balance in elderly individuals. Therefore, we aimed to clarify this gap.
