  1. The Physical Activity Scale for the Elderly (PASE) : Evidence for validity.

    Article - En anglais

    We assessed the validity of the Physical Activity Scale for the Elderly (PASE) in a sample of sedentary adults (56 men, 134 women, mean age ± [SD] 66.5 ± 5.3 years) who volunteered to participate in a randomized controlled trial on the effect of aerobic conditioning on psychological function.

    Construct validity was established by correlating PASE scores with physiologic and performance characteristics : peak oxygen uptake, resting heart rate and blood pressure, percent body fat, and balance.

    The mean PASE scores were higher in men than in women (men=145.8 ± 78.0 ; women=123.9 ± 66.3, P<0.05), and in those age 55-64 years compared with those age 65 years and over (55-64=144.2 ± 75.8 ; 65 and over=118.9 ± 63.9, P<0.05).

    PASE scores were also significantly higher in those who did not report a chronic health condition (cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, or recent surgery).

    PASE scores were significantly associated (P<0.05) with peak oxygen uptake (r=0.20), systolic blood pressure (r=-0.18) and balance score (r=0.20).

    No significant associations of PASE score and diastolic blood pressure, resting heart rate, or percent body fat were noted.

    These results provide additional evidence for the validity of the PASE as a measure of physical activity suitable for use in epidemiology studies on the association of physical activity, health, and physical function in older individuals.
