Abstract
We live in the era of aging population. It is necessary to focus not only on the length of life but also on its quality. Fear of falling has been considered a health problem among older people for years. One of the limiting factors is inherently the level of physical activity. This study investigated the association between habitual physical activity and perception of fear of falling (FOF) in older adults. To measure the level of fear of fall, we used a standardized questionnaire. The Falls Efficacy Scale-International (FES-I) is a short, easy to administer tool that measures the level of concern about falling during social and physical activities inside and outside home whether or not the person actually does the activity. The level of physical activity was evaluated by answering questions about the type, length and intensity of physical activity. The number of 206 older adults were grouped according to METs (METs are calculated from their physical activities), gender and age. Our study contributes to the statement which says that the level of physical activity can have an influence on quality of life in older adults in association with fear of falling. We will examine how we can influence the perception of fear of falling by specific type of PA and association among risk factors.
