This group consists of older adults living in a rest home, who are proper for inclusion criteria
Other: Self-reported questionairres
the fatigue will be determined through self reported questionnairres
- Fall Severity Scale (FSS) [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]The FSS is the most frequently used scale among the unidimensional scales which have been developed to assess fatigue. The scale rates the fatigue with nine items, For each item, the patient is asked to grade the fatigue level between 1 and 7, where 1 indicates strong disagreement and 7 indicates strong agreement. A score of 28 or higher generally indicates presence of fatigue.
- Strength assessment [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]Quadriceps strength and handgrip strength will be measured by digital dynamometers named as Lafayette and Jamar dynamometers, respectively. Quadriceps strength will be measured in a sitting position with hip and knee flexed 90 degrees. The participants extend the knee and the examiner applies an opposite force to break this position. This test will be performed three times and the maximum value will be recorded in a kilogram. The handgrip strength will be assessed according to the American Society of Hand Therapists. The participants will be asked to squeeze as forcefull as possible the dynamometer. The maximum score of three trials will be recorded in kliograms.
- Functional Capacity [ Time Frame: 6-10 minutes ]Six-minutes walk test will be used to evaluate the functional capacity or cardiorespiratory fitness. The participants will be walking in a 30-meter corridor for 6-minutes. If necessary the participants can use the walking assistive devices and take a rest. The total distance will be recorded in meters.
- Physical Function [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]Short Physical Performance Battery will be used to measure physical functioning. This battery includes 3 subdomains (gait speed, balance and chair stand test). The totatl score changes between 0 and 12. The higher score indicates better performance.
- Boddy mass index [ Time Frame: 2 minutes ]The body measures (weight and height) will be assessed in kilograms and meters. The index will be calculated by dividing body weight by height squared.
- Physical activity habits [ Time Frame: 1 minutes ]Physical activity habits will be determined with a question" How many times did you exercise for 30 minutes or more with a certain tempo?" This question will be recorded as a dichotomous variable, 1 indicates present physical activity habits (>2 times) and 0 no physical activity habits (<3 times).
- Body mass [ Time Frame: 30 seconds. ]The weight will be measured in kilograms without shoes and within thin clothes
- Body Height [ Time Frame: 30 seconds ]The height will be determined in an erect standing position as centimeters.
