Independent Walking for Brain Health

Physical activity interventions conducted in supervised settings (laboratories and group settings) with older adults have consistently shown improved cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health and improved cognitive function. What is lacking is the development of interventions that take place in real world environments and that take advantage of new technologies to help ...

Phase N/A

Preventing Avoidable Admissions Among Assisted Living Elders

Saint Luke Home (SLH) is the only nondenominational, nonprofit academic assisted living center (ALC) for low-income seniors who are 55 years old and in need of supervisory level assistance in Tucson, Arizona. SLH residents have high behavioral health overlay with presence of cognitive decline for some elders. Arizona Center on ...

Phase N/A

Study of Acarbose in Longevity

Acarbose, an FDA approved drug for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, has known effects on glucose metabolism. Evidence from mice indicates that acarbose may prolong lifespan. In humans, acarbose improves inflammatory markers and reduces cardiovascular events. Consequently, acarbose is of interest in clinical translational aging research since it may ...

The Influence of Regular Beef Consumption and Protein Density of the Diet on Training-induced Gains in Muscle Strength and Performance in Healthy Adults

Humans lose muscle and strength as they get older. Further, ageing is accompanied by loss in cognitive function. It is not quite clear why this happens; however, it is known that the loss of muscle and strength can increase risk for physical and mental health risks and impair the ability ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Aquatic Intervention on Fall Risk Hazard Perception Calendar Planning and Brain Activity During Elderly

The percentage of elderly individuals (65+) in the society of Israel is 10.6%. As life-span increases, this percentage is expected to reach 15% in 2035. According to the Central Bureau of Statistics of Israel regarding the injuries and fatalities of road users, about 14% of the injuries and about 42% ...

Phase N/A

Aging and Cognitive Health Evaluation in Elders (ACHIEVE)

The ACHIEVE study will be a randomized controlled trial nested within the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study. 850 70-84 year-old cognitively normal older adults with hearing loss will be randomized 1:1 to the hearing intervention (hearing needs assessment, fitting of hearing devices, education/counseling) or successful aging intervention (individual sessions ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Nicotinamide Riboside on Metabolism and Vascular Function

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of 7 days of Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) or placebo supplementation on metabolism and vascular function following high-fat meal. Differences between young (18-35) and older (60-75) adults will be determined.

Phase N/A

Lifestyle Intervention to Improve Bone Quality

Previous studies had suggested that lifestyle therapy (diet plus exercise) resulting in weight loss in elderly population improves physical function, cardio metabolic risk factors, and cognition/quality of life, but a major complication is loss of BMD. The addition of exercise to diet-induced weight loss attenuated but did not eliminate weight-loss-induced ...

Phase N/A

Reducing Cardiometabolic Risk and Promoting Functional Health in Older Adults With Obesity and Prediabetes

The confluence of obesity and pre-diabetes in older adults increases the risk of diabetes, and accelerates functional decline, multimorbidity, disability, and death. More research is needed to refine and extend preventive interventions to reduce burden for elders and society. For over a decade efficacious 6- and 12-month Diabetes Prevention Program ...

Phase N/A

MI Practice and tDCS With Aging

The mental repetition of movements - or motor imagery (MI) practice - facilitates motor learning. It allows avoiding fatigue that occurs during physical practice; this method is thus particularly interesting for elderly people. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a noninvasive method of neurostimulation during which a low direct current ...
