    Objectives

    This investigation determined whethes an in-hume rests lance training program achieved health benefits in older adults with disabilities.

    Methods

    A randomized controlled trial compared the effects of assigning 215 older persons to either a home-based resistance exercise training group or a waiting list control group.

    Assessments were conducted at baseline and at 3 and 6 months following randomization.

    The program consisted of videotaped exercise routines performed with elastic bands of varying thickness.

    Results

    High rates of exercise adherence were achieved, with 89% of the recommended exercise sessions performed over 6 months.

    Relative to controls, subjects who participated in the program achieved statistically significant lower extremity strength improvements of 6% to 12%, a 20% improvement in tandem gait, and a 15% to 18% reduction in physical and overall disability at the 6-month follow-up.

    No adverse health effects were encountered.

    Conclusions

    These findings provide important evidence that home-based resistance exercise programs designed for older persons with disabilities hold promise as an effective public health strategy.
