Professor Andrea Fuente Vidal participates in a physiotherapy study at the ACE Foundation

Professor Andrea Fuente Vidal, who teaches Evaluation and Fundamentals (1st year), Kinesiotherapy and Basic Health Care (2nd year) at Bellvitge, has participated as the only physical skills evaluator in a physical therapy study entitled “Comparative Cognitive Effects of Choreographed Exercise and Multimodal Physical Therapy in Older Adults with Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment: Randomized Clinical Trial”, which was conducted at the ACE Foundation facilities in Barcelona.

The research aimed to test the cognitive and physical effects of a choreographed exercise program with music compared with a multimodal physical therapy program. The subjects who participated in the trial were elderly people with mild cognitive impairment and amnesia. There were two groups and they participated in 1 hour group exercise sessions over 12 weeks.

The results presented in this study suggest that cognitive benefits are greatest for choreographed interventions, and that these may be effective forms of dementia prevention, which are worth further research.

In addition to being part of the EUSES teaching team at the Bellvitge Campus, the Physiotherapist I Master’s Degree in Physical Activity and Health is also an external collaborator of the M30 research group at the University of Vic.

The reference of the study carried out is the following:
