Effect of polymeric underplates on fracture fixation;
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of a physical recreation program on the self-concept and flexibility improvement of female senior citizens and to determine if self-concept and flexibility in senior citizens would be influenced by age. Eighteen females, aged from 62 to 79 years, were evaluated on self-concept and flexibility, before and after a treatment was administered. Nine subjects were matched according to ages of a control group. Both groups were pretested and posttested by the use of the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale, the Wells Sit and Reach Test, and the shoulder-arm flexibility measurement series. Both groups then participated in a 60-minute recreation program conducted three times weekly (10 weeks). The experimental group was administered low-risk physical activities while the control group participated only in minimal physical activities. The Mann-Whitney Test was utilized to determine significant differences between groups on self-concept and flexibility. Based on the analysis of the data, the following conclusions of female senior citizens were indicated: (1) The self-concept of female senior citizens appears to exhibit no significant change from participating in a physical recreation program. (2) The flexibility of female senior citizens appears to exhibit significant change from participating in a physical recreation program, and age does not appear to be a significant factor with self-concept and flexibility when participating in a physical recreation program.
