Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study aims to compare the effects of dosage of sequential combination of cognitive and physical exercise training for the elderly with MCI. The high dosage (HD) group received a total of 36 training sessions and the low dosage (LD) group received a total of 12 training sessions. Both groups improved significantly in physical, cognition, and daily function. The LD group saw more benefits in general cognitive function. It is suggested that LD training was enough to improve functions in elderly with MCI.
