- International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) [ Time Frame: three years ]Level of self-reported physical activity assessed with the International Physical Activity Questionnaire,IPAQ and expressed as MET-minutes.
- Body composition measurement [ Time Frame: three years ]Body composition refers to the amount of relative fat to muscle you have in your body, which the items include height (cm), weight(kg), body mass index (BMI), muscle mass(kg), fat (%), fat mass, fat free mass (FFM), and total body water (TBW).
- The physical fitness assessment [ Time Frame: three years ]
The physical fitness designed to evaluate several components of functional ﬁtness was as follows:
30-second chair stand test: Count the times that person rises in 30-s without pushing off with the arms.
Chair sit and reach: Measure the distance with an 20-cm ruler that a person is short of reaching the toe (minus score) or beyond the toe (plus score).
2-minute step test: Determine the times that person can step in place, raising (Alternate test) the knees to a height halfway between the iliac crest and middle of the patella, in 2-min.
Back scratch: Measure the distance between (or the overlap of) the middle ﬁngers behind the back when trying to touch the middle ﬁngers of both hands together behind the back.
8-foot up and go: Measure the time it takes to get out of a chair, walk 8-feet to and around a cone, and return to the chair.
