Old people walk fast or indicate long life
American researchers have found that the speed of life of the elderly is clearly related to the length of life, usually walking fast or indicating a long life.
But at present, this can only serve as a reference for doctors to understand the health of patients.
The sooner the longer the life, the University of Pittsburgh researchers analyzed nine studies from 1986 to 2000.
These studies involved the pace information of 34,485 elderly people aged 65 and over.
When testing the pace, the subject starts at the initial position and walks at a normal speed2.
4 meters to 6 meters.
The results showed that the average pace of the subjects was 0 per second.
Ten years after the end of the test, 17,528 subjects died.
The researchers found that the faster the walking speed of the study, the longer the life of the subject, the more zero per second.
1 meter, the risk of death is reduced by 12%.
The faster the walk, the longer the life span, regardless of gender and age.
Agence France-Presse quoted researchers as saying on the 4th: “For different genders and ages, life expectancy is extended by the increase in pace.
“The older the more obvious, the researchers published a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association published on the 5th, the association is more obvious in the 75-year-old and above.
After 10 years of testing, the slowest and accelerated male survival rates were 19% and 87%, respectively, and female survival rates were 35% and 91%, respectively.
The researchers found that life expectancy at pace, gender, and age was estimated to be equally accurate based on age, gender, chronic medical history, hospitalization, smoking history, blood pressure, and body mass index (BMI).
The researchers analyzed that this is because walking requires energy, while controlling and maintaining movement involves multiple body organs and systems, including the heart, lungs, circulatory system, nervous system, muscles and bones. “Slow pace may reflect body organs andThe system is damaged and the walking consumes a lot of energy.”
The results of this study are helpful to clinicians, investigators and health system planners who are looking for simple indicators of higher health and life expectancy, said Stephanie Stutinski, the leader of the consultation.
“The pace measurement is simple, with a stopwatch, go 4 meters.”
Stutinski said, “The pace can be a simple, easy indicator for the health of the elderly.
“Italian Biomedical University Mateo Chesari commented on this research report that there is no evidence to support the hypothesis that fast pace is associated with good health, so the current pace cannot be used as the initial target for intervention.
Cesari said the association represents the overall health status and supports the best complement of research findings and clinical decisions. “The future needs to investigate whether pace may change the way people define older patients.”
