Precision Exercise Guidelines to Improve the Muscle Strength of the Elderly


WHO believes that aging is inevitable and is affected by the environment; how to create a healthy aging community space has become a trend in various countries. Taiwan's elderly population exceeded 7% in 1993. In 2022, 21.69% of Chiayi County will enter the "super-aged (>20%)" society. The government department proposed the "Precision Sports Instructor Training Program", through the assistance of academia to train instructors, and introduce instructors to the community to interact with the elderly (12 weeks). The purpose of this project: to develop precision sports courses, train teachers, and send communities to carry out teaching. Plan implementation: through joint research and development with academic units: 12-week sports course development, teacher training, personnel deployment, course implementation to assessment. After the course, it was found that the grip strength, static balance, and lower limb muscle strength of the elders in the community have significantly improved after sitting and standing for 30 seconds. Summary: Add precise exercise programs to implement community elders: healthy exercise, happy learning, and happy aging.
