Without our ability to perform ADLs, our quality of life becomes drastically diminished.
However, once entered into the models as an interaction term between the lowest amount of PT and the policy change, there was a statistically significant (p < .01) relationship with improved performance on the QIs measuring the proportion of residents with worse late-loss, early-loss, and overall ADLs (Table 2).
The remaining sub-scores trended toward, but did not meet, statistical significance: symptoms (p = 0.047), ADLs (p = 0.047), and sports (p = 0.016).
The Barthel index was used as a screening tool to assess the ability to perform ADLs. The Barthel index scores are in multiples of five, ranging from 0 (completely dependent) to 100 (independent in basic).
Many studies suggest there is a strong correlation between the chewing/ swallowing function and how ADLs are performed.

Decreased ability to manage complex ADLs such as finances, preparing meals for guests, or paying bills.
Bathing is one of the first activities of daily living (ADLs) to become impaired when older persons become increasingly frail (Theou, Rockwood, Mitnitski, & Rockwood, 2012).

Hypoxia or hypercapnea may occur during exercise, or even with low intensity activities of daily living (ADLs).
The robot also enables playful training of activities of daily living (ADLs) via a computer simulation displayed on a screen.
Then, the falls that are determined from the simple threshold are applied to the HMM [25-27] to distinguish between falls and ADLs. The results from a simple threshold, HMM, and the combination of the simple method and HMM are compared and analyzed.
