Table 3 Comparison between the two groups in terms of the amount of variation

From: Effects of low-intensity bodyweight training with slow movement on motor function in frail elderly patients: a prospective observational study

  Baseline—month 3
  LST group (n = 65) Control group (n = 31) p value
Body weight (kg) − 0.30 (− 0.64 to 0.03) 0.49 (− 0.01 to 0.98) 0.0105
Systolic blood pressure (mmHg) − 8.52 (− 12.76 to − 4.29) 0.09 (− 6.04 to 6.23) 0.0239
Diastolic blood pressure (mmHg) − 3.74 (− 6.24 to −  1.23) 1.22 (− 2.40 to 4.85) 0.0278
Timed Up and Go test (sec) − 0.60 (− 1.22 to 0.01) − 0.94 (− 1.83 to − 0.04) 0.3311
One leg balance with an open eye (sec) 1.42 (− 1.51 to 4.34) − 1.54 (− 5.77 to 2.69) 0.0910
CS-30 test (counts/30 s) 2.06 (0.91 to 3.22) 0.90 (− 0.77 to 2.58) 0.2613
  1. An unpaired t test was used to compare values between the two groups in terms of the amount of variation
  2. Data are presented as a mean (95% confidence interval)
  3. p < 0.05. p values less than 5% were considered significant in both cases
  4. LST low-intensity exercise with slow movement and tonic force generation
