Main description:

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, making it easy to administer in most clinical and community settings or in the home environment. The Senior Fitness Test Software 2.0 Subscription offers an easy way to proctor and report on this comprehensive test battery for assessing physical fitness in adults ages 60 and older. Developed in conjunction with the authors of the Senior Fitness Test Manual, Second Edition, to serve as a companion resource, this web application can be used for entering and analyzing test scores, creating individual or aggregated reports, and generating program outcome statistics. Participants can be grouped according to specifications such as age and sex or characteristics such as smoker and nonsmoker. With a single one-year subscription, multiple staff in the same organization at the same location are able to access this easy-to-manage online program. Graphs and streamlined versions of reports can be generated in the application, and you can export data for analysis using spreadsheets or statistical software. Plus, you may input test results directly from any internet-enabled device, including smart phones or tablets, making the application convenient to access outside the office or even as you are conducting the test. You may then renew this subscription on an annual basis. Maintaining strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, and balance is critical to seniors whether their later-life interests are playing golf, running marathons, or performing daily tasks such as climbing stairs or getting out of a chair without assistance. The Senior Fitness Test Software 2.0 Subscription when used in conjunction with the Senior Fitness Test Manual, Second Edition, and its bound-in DVD, offers a user-friendly means of evaluating--and then improving--functional fitness in the growing population of older adults.
