Abstract

To analyze the value of a physical activity program on stress coping of the elderly. Intervention study with a group of 18 elderly people referred by the Geriatric Service of the Hospital das Clinicas of the Universidade de Sao Paulo, who attended a supervised exercise program, evaluated by the human activity profile and the coping questionnaire. In the coping and functional performance scales, increased stress coping capacity and improvement of daily activities were found after exposure to a physical activity program. The practice of supervised and regular physical activity, combining aerobic, resistance, stretching, and respiratory exercises, yields positive effects in the coping capacity and in the accomplishment of the daily activities.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 06 May 2018.
All research outputs
#10,032,196
of 15,750,168 outputs
Outputs from Einstein (São Paulo)
#84
of 223 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#167,627
of 279,200 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Einstein (São Paulo)
#1
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,750,168 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 223 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.9. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 279,200 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
