Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of four months of cognitive-motor physiotherapy intervention, with a single weekly visit, on cognitive function, mobility and functional independence of institutionalized elderly individuals with mild cognitive impairment and mild dementia. In a controlled clinical trial, 15 subjects were allocated to experimental and control groups. Regarding the assessment of the subjects the following instruments were applied: Mini-Mental State Examination, Clinical Dementia Rating Scale, Verbal Fluency Test and Frontal Assessment Battery for analyzing cognitive functions; Berg Balance Scale and Timed Up and Go Test to verify mobility, and; Barthel Scale and Pfeffer Index for measurement of functional independence. The statistical procedures involved the application of Student's t-test with a 5% significance threshold. With respect to the results, the experimental group performed better only in mobility-related tests at the end of the intervention (p < 0.05). The proposed intervention showed efficacy on mobility, but not on cognition and functional independence. The short period of time and low weekly basis may be related to the results obtained.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 December 2018.
All research outputs
#2,270,853
of 13,995,172 outputs
Outputs from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#40
of 734 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#64,180
of 287,234 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#1
of 19 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,995,172 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 83rd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 734 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 287,234 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 19 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
