Caractérisation des troubles de l’équilibre et effets d’un programme d’activités physiques adaptées chez les personnes âgées obèses

Abstract : It is well recognized that obesity and aging impair individuals balance and walking abilities. These alterations are potentially associated with greater difficulty in performing activities of daily life. However, the magnitude of the effects on functional abilities of the combination of aging and obesity, as observed in obese elderly,requires further investigations. Through this thesis work, we, first of all, showed that obesity presents an additional constraint to age throughout the process of stabilization and walking in elderly. This aggravates the functional limitations in the obese elderly in activities of daily life. Then, we reported that an adapted physical activities program based on balance, muscular reinforcement and mobility exercices optimize balance and walking abilities of obese elderly in extreme situations likely by developing their neuromuscular capacities in the lower limbs.
