In Austria, around ten per cent of over-65-year-olds are frail, while a further 40 per
cent are in a preliminary stage of frailty. The Healthy For Life project, with the MedUni Vienna as the academic lead,
aims to raise fitness levels and quality of life for older people whose nutritional condition is inadequate. The first
results show that regular strength training is particularly beneficial for increasing hand strength, and thus enabling
people to live independently, says Thomas Dorner of the MedUni Vienna's Centre for Public Health to mark World Health
Day on April 7.
The Healthy For Life project is a collaboration between the MedUni Vienna, Wiener
Hilfswerk and Sportunion Österreich and is sponsored by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund. It involves volunteer
"buddies" (aged at least 50) making weekly home visits to motivate older people to do strength training. Other
nutritional issues are also discussed and it also boosts social support. It's a win-win situation: "it is not only
beneficial to the elderly people's health, but also does the younger buddies good."
The first results, to be
presented at the project's forthcoming "sustainability conference," are clear: training enables the older people to be
more independent. Says Dorner: "We know that muscle mass decreases from the age of 30. Without training, around 50 per
cent of muscle mass has deteriorated by the age of 80. In this study, the intervention group boosted their maximum hand
strength by three kilograms. That is an increase of almost 20 per cent on the initial measurements. There was also a
significant increase in physical activity levels, mobility, quality of life and cognitive functions. Albumin, a
nutritional parameter for protein in blood serum, which is frequently at low levels in the frail elderly, was
Muscle training also reduces the risk of falls -- an important factor given the high
number of osteoporosis patients in Austria: around 740,000 people aged over 50 are affected, most of them women. Dorner
stresses that "the fear of falls was significantly reduced in the intervention group. This is very important, because
the fear of falling leads to frail people moving less, and thus further depleting their muscular strength and increasing
the risk of falls."
The buddies, who trained alongside the elderly people also significantly increased their
hand and leg strength during this period.
An interesting aspect of principle is that although general life
expectancy is higher in women than in men, the proportion of healthy years of life is higher in men across the EU (79
per cent) than in women (74 per cent). Chronic illness is more common in women than men, and they also consider their
state of health to be worse.
"A combination of good nutrition with enough plant and animal protein to
maintain muscle mass, and regular physical training to promote muscle strength can boost the number of healthy years,"
says the MedUni Vienna expert. Then there is the fact that many frail people live alone and no longer leave their homes.
"An active social life and social contacts are important factors in remaining independent for as long as possible,"
