Synopsis

Easy to administer and score, the "Senior Fitness Test" is a simple method of assessing the physical attributes that older adults need in order to perform daily activities. Health practitioners and fitness and rehabilitation specialists who work with older adults will be able to identify weaknesses that cause mobility problems, set fitness goals and develop exercise programmes that help clients and patients improve mobility and maintain physical independence. The new edition contains expanded information on ways to modify test protocols for older adults with limiting conditions such as osteoporosis, obesity, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, stroke, fibromyalgia, heart conditions, multiple sclerosis, hip and knee replacements, chronic renal failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, osteoarthritis and blindness or low vision. It now comes with a DVD containing visual demonstrations of the tests, including setup, execution, evaluation and modification of testing protocols to accommodate clients' limitations.
