Abstract

Background: The work of administrative officers depends a lot on their capability in memorizing. Increased fitness is strongly associated with a better memory. This study was conducted to determine the relationship between cardiopulmonary fitness and short term memory.Methods: This analytical cross sectional study was carried out from August to September 2014. Subjects from administrative offices within Universitas Padjadjaran were chosen by simple random sampling. 101 individuals were selected, comprising of 68 males and 33 females. Data were obtained through Digit Span Test for short term memory and the cardiopulmonary fitness was measured using Harvard Step Test. The VO2 Max obtained was correlated with the Digit Span Test score.Results: The mean for cardiopulmonary fitness of males was found to be 36.1, with standard deviation 8.63, whereas mean cardiopulmonary fitness for females was found to be 32.94, with standard deviation 7.5. For correlation analysis, the result of Spearman’s rank analysis from the study showed that the p-value is 0.00. Comparing to the significance level α=5%, the p value is worth less, thus the null hypothesis, Ho is rejected. Therefore, it could be concluded that there was a relationship between cardiopulmonary fitness and short term memory of male and female administrative officers at Universitas Padjadjaran.Conclusions: There is a relationship between cardiopulmonary fitness and short term memory of male and female administrative officers at Universitas Padjadjaran.

Abstract

Objective: To compare the effect of overground walking and treadmill exercise on walking speed and ability in elderly from week to week.  Methods: This study was conducted in 6 weeks to 18 elderly at Panti Wreda Karitas and Nazareth Bandung (September–December 2011). They were divided into two groups; overground walking exercise group and treadmill group. Walking speed and ability was measured using 10 meter walk test and 6 minute walk test consecutively. Results: Both group walking speed was improved after 1 and 2 weeks exercise (p=0.019 and p=0.050), consecutively. Walking ability in the overground and treadmill group was improved after 1 and  3 weeks  exercise (p=0.019 and p=0.009), consecutively. Overground walking group showed greater improvement in walking speed and ability after 3 weeks exercise (p=0.008 and p=0.017) consecutively. Conclusions: Three weeks overground walking exercise improves walking speed and ability better  than treadmill exercise.    Keywords: Elderly, overground walking exercise, treadmill exercise, walking ability, walking speed DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v1n1.105
