|Abstract: ||Aims: To compare the physical activity, sedentary activity and health-related quality of life (HRQoL)
in institutionalized vs. non-institutionalized elderly, and to establish a pattern of relationship and
prediction of physical and sedentary activity with physical and mental components of HRQoL.
Methods: The sample consisted of 383 elderly with ≥ 75 years old (n=187 institutionalized and
n=196 non-institutionalized). Were administered the International Physical Activity Questionnaire
(IPAQ) and Short Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36) for evaluated the physical and sedentary activity and
HRQoL. Also was used the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) as exclusion criteria for cognitive
problems in the elderly. Results: Differences between institutionalized and non-institutionalized
elderly were found in moderate-intensity activities and walking, a favour of non-institutionalized. The
institutionalized elderly remain more minutes in sedentary activity. Also, were observed differences
between both groups in physical component of HRQoL, a favour of non-institutionalized elderly.
The mental component remained unchanged. The multivariate regression analyses showed that
physical activity predicted the physical (8 to 12%) and mental (5 to 8%) components of HRQoL for
institutionalized and non-institutionalized elderly. Conclusions: Non-institutionalized elderly were
more physically active, spent less time in sedentary activity and showed better perception physical
component of HRQoL that institutionalized elderly. An important and encouraging result of this study
was that physical activity is a predictor of improved physical and mental component of HRQoL for
institutionalized and non-institutionalized elderly.|
