Clinical Trial Summary

Background: Previous studies have suggested that both Flexi-Bar and Multi-Component exercises can improve an individual's physical fitness and musculoskeletal discomfort. However, determining which is more effective in enhancing the frailty, physical fitness, and musculoskeletal discomfort of the elderly remains controversial. Objective: This study aims to investigate differences in the effectiveness of Flexi-Bar and Multi-Component exercises in improving the frailty, physical fitness, and musculoskeletal discomfort of the elderly after 12 weeks of intervention. Methods: A single-blind randomized controlled trial was conducted to collect data from a city in central Taiwan. Participants were randomly divided into a Flexi-Bar group (FB group) and a Multi-Component exercise group (MCE group). Participants in the FB group performed a 60-minute Flexi-Bar exercise every week for 12 consecutive weeks. Meanwhile, Participants in the MCE group performed a 60-minute Multi-Component exercise every week for 12 consecutive weeks. Tests were conducted both before and after the 12-week intervention using items including the Kihon Checklist, Senior Fitness Test, and Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire.
