Exercise offers significant health benefits to older people, but may also carry risks of injury and cardiovascular events. These can be minimized with appropriate screening, prescription, and monitoring of an exercise program. Tailored exercise prescription is developed in consultation with the participant, taking into account identified risks, functional limitations, and individual goals. Exercise professionals can provide valuable assistance with screening, prescription, and supervision of an exercise program, but limited access to experienced staff and supervised programs remains a significant barrier to exercise participation. Innovative models of care are required to investigate optimal participant targeting, long-term exercise adherence, and cost-effectiveness.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
