Clinical Trial Summary

The aim for this study is to investigate the effectiveness of a 16-week realistic community-delivered Baduanjin training program compared to a waitlist control intervention, in improving functional outcomes among pre-frail and frail older adults in Singapore. It is hypothesized that participants that receive 16-week of BDJ training will have significant improvement in physical function (including balance, muscle strength, and endurance); alleviate exhaustion; reduce risk of falling and fear of falling; potentially reverse frailty; reduce depression; and improve quality of life, potentially with greater improvements in area(s) for individuals with lower baseline measures. Whereas, participants in the waitlist control group, will have insignificant changes to their baseline measures.
