ABSTRACT

Background: Aging is an irreversible process; Due to inactivity, a sedentary lifestyle are very evident in most people. The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of functional task exercise and finger movements exercise with finger weight lifting training on handgrip for community dwelling elderly population. When physical capacity falls below the ability to the performance of daily tasks, functional limitations and a loss of independence may occur. Aim and Objectives of The Study: The aim of the study is to analyze the effectiveness of functional task exercise program and finger movement exercise with finger weight lifting training in improving handgrip strength. Methods: This experimental study was conducted on 40 male and female patients (aged 60-75 years) without any severe illness. 40 subjects were divided into 2 groups, group A was taught functional tasks exercise and group B was taught finger movement exercise and finger weight lifting exercise. For the outcome measures, Handgrip strength was recorded using handheld dynamometer. Result: The result shows that group B (Finger movements exercise with finger weight lifting training) P Value is (right hand <0.0001, left hand p<0.0001) improved compared to group A (Functional task exercise) P Value is (right hand p<0.0001, left hand p<0.005). Conclusion: There is a significant for both these exercise. But statistically significant for finger movements exercise with finger weight lifting exercise comparing to functional task exercise.

Keywords: elderly population, hand function, grip strength, functional task exercise, weight lifting exercise.
