Description

Through an integrated text and video combination, Senior Fitness Test Manual, Second Edition (Enhanced), offers the most comprehensive and reliable test battery for assessing physical fitness in adults ages 60 and older. The tests in this resource assist health practitioners and fitness and rehabilitation specialists in identifying weaknesses that cause mobility problems, developing exercise programs that improve functional fitness, preventing future mobility issues, and evaluating progress. 

The Senior Fitness Test (SFT) is a simple, economical method of assessing the physical attributes that older adults need in order to perform daily activities. It consists of seven tests—covering lower- and upper-body strength, aerobic endurance, lower- and upper-body flexibility, agility, and balance—that can be conducted with minimal space, equipment, and technical requirements. The manual presents clear instructions on preparing and administering the tests and interpreting and using the test results. Video clips are integrated right into the text to provide even futher instruction and full visual demonstrations of test protocols, including setup, execution, safety, evaluation, and modification of testing protocols to accommodate clients’ limitations.  

The second edition of the Senior Fitness Test Manual has been expanded to include ways to modify test protocols for older adults with limiting conditions and offers more in-depth information on improving test scores, including illustrated instructions for exercises that can be prescribed to seniors to help them improve their fitness. 

In addition, the manual retains national normative data based on age and sex for over 7,000 adults ages 60 to 94, and it now includes criterion-referenced, clinically relevant fitness standards. These new criterion-referenced standards allow practitioners and older adults to identify the test scores at a specific age that are correlated with maintaining adequate functional mobility into the 90s, providing a new and deeper understanding of the test scores. This allows practitioners and their clients to focus on maintaining or improving functional fitness with customized goals meant to preserve and improve individual abilities.
