BACKGROUND: To provide a cross-cultural French adaptation of the Achille's Tendon Total Rupture Score (ATRS) and to assess its psychometric performances. METHOD: The ATRS questionnaire was first translated and inter-culturally adapted into French according to international guidelines. Then, 95 subjects were recruited to complete the French version of the ATRS twice (2 weeks of interval). The SF-36 and VISA-A were used as comparative questionnaires. The psychometric properties of the questionnaire were evaluated (test-retest reliability, internal consistency, construct validity, floor/ceiling effects). RESULTS: Thetest-retest reliability was excellent (ICC of 0,966 (95% CI:0.644-0.879)) and the internal consistency very high (Cronbach's alpha of 0,98). The convergent and divergent construct validity were also confirmed. Finally, none of the subjects obtained the lowest score (0) or the maximal score (100) to the questionnaire. CONCLUSION: A valid and reliable French version of the ATRS is now available. [less ▲]

Cette étude a examiné les effets d’une intervention utilisant un tapis de jeu géant (4×3 m) sur l’activité physique ambulatoire (AP) ainsi que sur les capacités physiques et psychologiques de résidents de maisons de repos. Cette étude longitudinale quasi-expérimentale a été réalisée dans deux maisons de repos comparables. Le tapis de jeu géant est composé d’activités de force, de flexibilité, d’équilibre et d’endurance. L'assistance du spécialiste en sport a progressivement diminué lors de l'intervention selon la théorie de l'autodétermination. Les éléments suivants ont été évalués au moment de l’inclusion, après l’intervention et après une période de suivi de trois mois : l’AP (nombre de pas/jour et énergie dépensée/jour avec l’ActiGraph), l’état cognitif (MMSE), la qualité de vie (EuroQol-5), la motivation pour l’AP (BREQ-2), la marche et l’équilibre (Tinetti et SPPB), la mobilité fonctionnelle (TUG), et la force isométrique des muscles des membres inférieurs (MicroFET2). Dix participants (82,5 ± 6,3 ans et 6 femmes) ont pris part à l'intervention d'un mois, alors que 11 participants (89,9 ± 3,1 ans et 8 femmes) ont été affectés au groupe témoin. Dans le groupe d’intervention, l’AP a augmenté de 2921 pas/jour à 3358 pas/jour après l’intervention (+14,9%, p = 0,04) et 4083 pas/jour (+ 39,8%, p=0,03) après 3 mois. La dépense d'énergie/jour a également augmenté après l'intervention (+110 kcal/jour, + 6.3%, p=0.01) et après 3 mois (+219 kcal/jour, +12.3%, p=0.02). La qualité de vie (p<0,05), l'équilibre (p<0,05), la marche (p<0,05) et la force de la cheville (p<0,05) ont également été améliorés au bout de 3 mois. Ces améliorations n'ont pas été observées dans le groupe témoin. Les résultats préliminaires sont prometteurs, mais des recherches supplémentaires sont nécessaires pour évaluer l'efficacité à long terme des interventions d'AP en maisons de repos. [less ▲]

Background: Motivational climate in exercise group environments would have an impact on adherence, effort and enjoyment. We examined the motivational climate among nursing home residents who were involved in group exercise sessions. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in 10 nursing homes of Liège area that offer group exercise sessions. Sociodemographic data (age, sex, body mass index), cognitive status (by the Mini Mental State Examination) and independence in activities of daily living (by the Katz Scale) were retrieved in the medical records. The "Abbreviated-Perceived Motivational Climate in Exercise Questionnaire" was translated into French and then administered face to face with a clinical researcher. This is composed of 6 ego-involving climate items (corresponding to rivalry, comparison and favoritism) and 6 task-involving climate items (corresponding to valorization, individual efforts, self-improvement and cooperation). Each item is ranged on a 5-point Likert scale ranging from 1 (not at all focused on ego or task) to 5 (totally focused on ego or task). Each subscale has a total score expressed as an average. Results: A total of 102 subjects of exercise group sessions were included (84.3 ± 7.7 years and 83 (81.4%) women). The mean score of task-involving and ego-evolving motivational climate was respectively 3.57 (SD = 0.67) and 1.52 (SD = 0.49), suggesting that the motivational climate was more focused on the task-involving climate than on ego-involving climate. Some items results were of particular interest: 55.9% of the respondents found that the instructor doesn't remark/reward when they try hard, 63.7% said that the instructor doesn't encourage mutual aid and 38.2% found that instructor doesn't encourage to do new exercises. Conclusions: Participants tended to perceive motivational climate as more task-involving than ego-involving. The absence of individual positive feedback, new exercises and mutual aid were also highlighted. © 2020 The Author(s). [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Competition has been shown to improve motivation and physical performance in young people. This method has been rarely studied in older people. AIMS: To evaluate the feasibility of senior physical activity (PA) contests between two nursing homes and to assess changes in the motivational level and physical performance of the residents over time. METHODS: Residents from two Belgian nursing homes were invited to participate in PA contests. A pretest and three contest sessions were organized over a period of 3 months. The activities proposed were body balance, gait speed, sit-to-stand performance, arm curl and address tests. Feasibility was measured by contest session adherence (expected score > 80%), difficulty scores (expected score < 40%) and appreciation scores (expected score > 80%). Motivational questionnaires were administered: the BREQ-2 (assessing amotivation, introjected regulation, identified regulation, intrinsic motivation and external motivation) and the A-PMCEQ (assessing ego- and task-involving climates). Friedman's analysis of variance was performed to evaluate the changes in physical performance and motivational levels. RESULTS: Of the 24 participants, seven did not complete all sessions because of medical or personal reasons not related to the study. During the three sessions, the adherence was 86%, the mean difficulty score was 30.8% and the satisfaction score was 87%. After three sessions, residents experienced a significant decrease ranged from 3 to 0 point for amotivation (p = 0.03), 1 to 0 point for external motivation (p = 0.03) and 2.5 to 2 points for ego-involving climate (p = 0.02) and a significant improvement ranged from 0.7 to 0.9 m/s for gait speed (p < 0.001), 18.5 to 15.6 s for sit-to-stand performance (p < 0.001) and 11.5 to 15 curls for arm curl scores (p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: In nursing home settings, senior PA contests are feasible and may improve the motivational climate and physical performance. [less ▲]

Background: This study aimed to evaluate the predictive value of the domains of intrinsic capacity (ie, cognition, locomotion, sensory, vitality, and psychosocial) proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) on the 3-year adverse health outcomes of nursing home residents. Methods: A 3-year incidence of mortality, falls, repeated falls, and autonomy decline (ie, a one-unit increase in the Katz score) was assessed in a cohort of Belgian nursing home residents. Cognition was assessed using the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). For locomotion, balance, gait speed and chair stand performance were evaluated by the Short Physical Performance Battery test. The sensory domain was measured using the Strawbridge questionnaire for audition and vision. For vitality, abdominal circumference, body mass index, nutritional status (by Mini Nutritional Assessment [MNA]) and handgrip strength were assessed. Psychosocial status was evaluated by the EQ-5D and the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression scale. Missing data were handled by multiple imputations. Cox proportional hazard models, logistic regressions, and analysis of variance were used for the analyses. Results: In the multivariable model, a one-unit increase in balance performance and in the nutrition score decreased the probability of death by 12% (Hazard ratio [HR] = 0.88; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.78–0.99) and 4% (HR = 0.96; 95% CI 0.93–0.99), respectively. The risk of falling decreased when there was a one-unit increase in balance performance (HR = 0.87, 95% CI 0.79–0.96) and in the nutrition score (HR = 0.96, 95% CI 0.93–0.98). No association was found for intrinsic capacity and repeated falls. Low scores in nutrition (odds ratio = 0.86, 95% CI 0.77–0.96) were associated with a higher probability of autonomy decline. Conclusion: Some domains of intrinsic capacity predicted health outcomes among nursing home residents. Nutrition and balance should be regularly checked among this population. [less ▲]

Background: Previous studies have shown that older people can experience a considerable change in their physical performance (PP) over time. Objectives: To identify PP trajectories and their association with mortality among nursing home residents who were followed up for 3 years. Design: Three-year longitudinal observational study. Setting: Subjects of the SENIOR cohort. Subjects: Six hundred and four nursing home residents with a mean age of 82.9±9.1 years. Methods: Baseline characteristics and the date of death were collected from the medical records. PP was assessed annually by the short physical performance battery (SPPB) test. Multiple imputations were performed to manage the missing data. PP trajectory groups were estimated using latent growth curve analysis. Cox proportional hazard regression models were applied to examine the risk of mortality according to the PP trajectory groups. Results: Three PP trajectory groups were identified: slow decline (N =96), moderate decline (N =234) and fast decline (N =274). After adjustments for potential confounding variables and the baseline SPPB scores, the residents in the fast decline and moderate decline trajectory groups had an increased risk of mortality compared to those in the slow decline trajectory group, with hazard ratio values of 1.78 (95% confidence interval [CI]=1.34–2.26) and 1.37 (95% CI=1.10– 1.66), respectively. Conclusions: PP trajectories provide value-added information to baseline geriatric assessments and could be used for predicting 3-year mortality among nursing home residents. It may be important to regularly monitor the SPPB score and signal an alert when a fast decline in PP is detected in older people. [less ▲]

Background In 2017, our team highlighted promising results of a giant exercising board game on physical activity level and a broader array of physical and psychological outcomes among nursing home residents. However, some improvements of this game were needed to make it more suitable for nursing homes and more challenging in terms of exercises. Therefore, we decided to develop a new version of a giant exercising board game: the GAMotion. Objectives The primary objective of this pilot study was to assess the impact of the GAMotion on physical capacity among nursing home residents. The secondary aims were to assess the impact of the GAMotion on motivation and quality of life in this population. Methods A one-month pilot interventional study was performed in two comparable nursing homes. Eleven participants meeting the inclusion criteria took part in the intervention in one nursing home, whereas 10 participants were assigned to the control group in the other institution. The GAMotion required participants to perform strength, flexibility, balance and endurance activities. The assistance provided by an exercising specialist decreased gradually during the intervention in an autonomy-oriented approach based on the self-determination theory. Physical capacity (i.e. fall risk using Tinetti test; dynamic balance using Timed Up and Go test (TUG); physical abilities using SPPB test; grip strength using Jamar dynamometer; isometric lower limb muscle strength using MicroFET2 and quantitative evaluation of walking using Locometrix), motivation (i.e. using Behavioral Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire-2) and quality of life (i.e. using EQ-5D questionnaire) were assessed at baseline and at the end of the intervention. A two-way repeated-measure analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to assess time*group (intervention vs. control group) effects. All the analyses were adjusted on age, which differed significantly between the 2 groups at baseline. Results  0.02), SPPB (p < 0.0001), knee extensor isometric strength (p = 0.04), grip strength (p = 0.02), symmetry of steps (p = 0.04), 3 domains of the EQ-5D (i.e. mobility, self-care, usual activities: p < 0.0001) and intrinsic motivation (p = 0.02) compared to the control group. No significant improvement was demonstrated on the other parameters. Conclusion These promising results should be interpreted with caution because of certain limitations (e.g. small sample size, no blind assessment). Further investigation is required to confirm and evaluate the long-term effectiveness of the GAMotion in nursing homes. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND & AIMS: This systematic review aims to systematically assess and summarize the equation models developed to estimate muscle mass with bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) instruments against a reference instrument (DXA, MRI, CT-scan, Ultrasonography), in order to help researchers and clinicians choose the most adapted equation, depending on the device and the population in question. METHODS: The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis (PRISMA) statement was followed. Medline (via Ovid) and Scopus were searched in January 2019 for observational (transversal, longitudinal, retrospective) studies developing an equation prediction model to validate BIA against another reference method for the assessment of muscle mass. Study selection and data extraction was performed independently by two researchers. Methodological quality of the included studies was assessed using the Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies-2 (QUADAS-2) tool. RESULTS: 25 studies matched the inclusion criteria and were included in the present systematic review. Among them, 10 studies proposed an equation for subjects aged 65 years and older, 9 for adults, 4 for infants and 2 did not report the age of the population. A large heterogeneity was observed regarding the brand and type of BIA as well as the administration protocol (mode, frequency, number of electrodes, administration position and empty bladder/stomach or not). Most of the studies used DXA as the reference instrument, except 4 that used MRI. In each of the included papers authors provided, through simple or multiple regression, a predictive equation for muscle mass. BIA resistance index, sex, weight, age, BIA reactance and height were most frequently included as predictive variables. The majority of the equations developed explained more than 80% of the variance between both instruments. Out of the 25 equations available, only 9 were also validated in another population within the same paper. CONCLUSION: This systematic review of the literature offers clinicians and researchers the opportunity to verify the existence of a prediction equation when using a BIA device for estimating muscle mass. This will help them to obtain a valid estimation of muscle mass in a specific population and with a specific instrument. If the equation exists and has been validated by a study free of high risk of bias, it's use is recommended because the development of a new equation in the same context seems redundant and undesirable. If a validation has not been carried out for a specific brand of BIA, reference method or population, we recommend the development and cross-validation of a new equation. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: Anterior knee pain is common in sports and especially among sportswomen. Moreover, early sport specialization in female adolescents is associated with increased risk of anterior knee-pain disorders. The "Anterior Knee Pain Scale" was developed (in English) for the evaluation of the severity of symptoms and sports ability in individuals with anterior knee pain. Our purpose was to linguistically and cross-culturally translate the Anterior Knee Pain Scale into French and to evaluate the reliability and validity of this translated version of the questionnaire. METHODS: The translation part was performed in six stages, according to international guidelines: (i) two initial translations from English to French; (ii) synthesis of the two translations; (iii) backward translations into the original language; (iv) expert committee to compare the backward translations with the original questionnaire; (v) pre-final version testing and (VI) expert committee appraisal. To validate the French version of the Anterior Knee Pain Scale, we assessed its validity, reliability and floor/ceiling effects. To do this, volunteer patients from the French part of Belgium and from France, with patellofemoral pain were asked to answer the French version of the Anterior Knee Pain Scale at baseline and after 7?days, as well as the generic SF-36 questionnaire. RESULTS: The Anterior Knee Pain Scale was translated without any major difficulties. A total of 101 subjects aged 34.5?±?11.4?years (58.4% of women) were included in this study. Results indicated an excellent test-retest reliability (Intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC)?=?0.97, 95%CI: 0.96-0.98), a high internal consistency (Cronbachs alpha = 0.87), a consistent construct validity (high correlations with the SF-36 questionnaire were found with domains related to physical function (r?=?0.80), physical role (r?=?0.70) and pain (r?=?0.64)) and low or moderate correlations with domains related to mental health (r?=?0.26), vitality (r?=?0.32) and social function (r?=?0.41). Moreover, no floor/ceiling effects have been found. CONCLUSION: A valid French version of the Anterior Knee Pain Scale is now available and can be used with confidence to better assess the disease burden associated with patellofemoral pain. It was successfully cross-culturally adapted into French. Implications for rehabilitation The results on psychometric properties of the French Anterior Knee Pain Scale are comparable with six validated versions obtained for the Finnish, the Turkish, the Chinese, the Dutch, the Thai and the Persian populations. The French translated version of the Anterior Knee Pain Scale is a reliable and valid instrument for assessing the functional limitations associated with patellofemoral pain. The test-retest reliability of the French Anterior Knee Pain Scale was excellent, the internal consistency was high and the construct validity was consistent. There were no floor/ceiling effects.

Au cours des deux dernières décennies, la documentation traitant de la fragilité s’est faite de plus en plus abondante. Toutefois, il n’existe toujours pas de définition opérationnelle et de critères universellement reconnus pour décrire la fragilité. Les critères cliniques de fragilité doivent être prédictifs du risque de déclin fonctionnel et d’événements péjoratifs de santé. Dans cette optique, identifier précocement les sujets fragiles permet d’agir sur les facteurs de risque et d’éviter les évolutions défavorables. La cohorte SENIOR, une étude longitudinale de personnes âgées résidant en maison de repos initiée en 2013, a pour objectif de contribuer à la compréhension des facteurs de risque, des conséquences et de la trajectoire de la fragilité. Elle a aussi pour but d’apporter des pistes de prise en charge. Cette cohorte suscite beaucoup d’intérêt dans le monde de la recherche scientifique. En effet, grâce aux nombreuses données démographiques, cliniques et anamnestiques récoltées annuellement, elle permet d’apporter des éléments de réponses aux problématiques liées à la fragilité des personnes âgées.
