²0–01– ²3 1 Lecture 5: Successful Aging KIN 3510 – Physical Activity and Aging Ayesha Saleem, PhD Jan 23, 2020 Learning outcomes Define successful aging and: List and describe its core components , Describe tests used to assess mobility and physical function . Describe the biopsychosocial model of aging and its biological, physical, cognitive, and social components . Explain how 5 health conditions contribute to reductions in mobility and performance ( cognitive decline, obesity, sarcopenia, dynapenia & pain ). List and describe the biological mechanisms and behavioral factors associated with reductions in physical function. Discuss promising interventions for enhancing mobility and physical function.
²0–01– ²3 ² Term exam #1 Next Thursday, Jan 30 th at 1:00 pm sharp in 136 FKC. Will be based on all material covered till the exam. No book chapters – but watch videos posted on UM learn. Be able to explain learning outcomes for each lecture. Mostly MCQs, matching, T/F type questions. Short Q/A for exam 2! Around 55:60 questions, 1 hour to write. Weight = 20%. Two different versions of the exam. Academic dishonesty is a serious charge. Bring a pencil/pen. Please don’t be late. Successful Aging Hard to define. “Success” is ambiguous. Qualitative description. Better than average physiological & psychosocial characteristics later in life. More satisfied with life in general. Rose, DJ. Physical Activity Instruction of Older Adults.

²0–01– ²3 Introduction – Successful Aging Variable markers of successful aging. Some main ones for mobility performance and physical function : 1. Walking speed: < 1 m/sec f high risk < 0.8 m/sec – very high risk 2. Short physical performance battery (SPPB): Balance, strength, walking speed Evaluating lower extremity function in older adults Poorer scores predict onset of diﬃculty performing ADLs Ageing Res Rev. 2015 Nov;24(Pt B):304f27. doi: 10.1016/j.arr.2015.09.005.
