|Outline of Final Research Achievements
We aim to formulate and evaluate physical activity criteria for the prevention of sarcopenia/long-term care applicable to a wide range of elderly people varying in the state of health and living conditions on the basis of data that we previously accumulated. We address this theme specifically by 1) conducting a baseline survey of the state of health, state of living, physical activity level, muscle mass, and fitness level in a large cohort, 2) developing and evaluating practical and effective sarcopenia/long-term care prevention programs, and 3) incorporating health economics indices in the assessment. For this purpose, we have launched a prospective study in a cohort consisting of about 18,000 elderly people in Kameoka City, excluding those with level 3 or higher need for care (Kyoto Kameoka Study).
