南投縣南開科技大學餐飲管理系學生對烹飪有興趣,自組「iCooking愛上料理」團隊,與小農合作研發各式醬料,也研發銀髮族餐點,近期更組隊參加天廚盃全國航空創意廚藝競賽,抱回2金3銀。

南開科大指出,餐飲系學生創辦「iCooking愛上料理」社團,其中「i」象徵愛,也代表將網路社群作為平台,除鼓勵參賽,更串連小農、福祉服務等元素研製料理。

「iCooking愛上料理」團隊將餐飲與科技串連,透過網路行銷平台,尋找各領域有機小農配合,研發出辣椒醬、香椿醬、洛神花蜜餞和各式水果醋等商品,並與福祉科技與服務管理系跨系合作,研發銀髮族餐點。

iCooking團隊表示,料理講究融合,並推廣在地食材,近年更針對銀髮族健康、素食養生等需求,透過不同烹調方式研發易入口,還有長者偏愛的中藥風味等創意餐點,將所學轉授給地方長輩,盼他們也愛上料理、吃得健康。

iCooking團隊參與各類型賽事或活動,累積實戰經驗,今年派出5人參加「天廚盃空廚競賽」抱回2金3銀佳績,其中馬來西亞僑生鄭禮財靠著鄉愁煮出家鄉味,首次參賽就奪冠。

鄭禮財說,他將3種族特色都放進料理,體現記憶中的大馬風味,像鳳梨炒飯佐以大馬當地咖喱粉,烤雞則夾帶清爽酸甜大馬風味,獲評審青睞。

大步走到100歲!深蹲、左右踏,每天3動作防跌不骨折

2018-11-28 新聞中心張承宇

【早安健康/張承宇報導】台灣需要照護年長者的家庭不在少數,台灣行動不便、需要臥床的高齡者比例,更是歐美國家的11倍,關注高齡者、失能者照護議題的長照政策,也因此成為近年的熱門焦點。而在需要長照服務之前,靠著平常的運動維持活動能力,其實就是避免臥床、失能的最佳解,日本診所院長力推三招,每天各做一次,不用5分鐘,竟然就能大大降低跌倒住院的機會!

運動障礙症候群不容忽視,易跌倒骨折、臥床不起

體重減輕、走路變慢 都是失能前奏

年齡不能作為判別老化程度的重要指標,衰弱症才是評估身體功能是否衰退的依據。當長輩出現五個徵兆,未來容易有跌倒、失能的風險。

你知道「衰弱症」嗎?或許你還不清楚,甚至對它感到陌生,然而,在台灣六十五歲以上的長者,每百人有五至十一人罹患衰弱症。

台大醫院竹東分院院長、台大醫院老年醫學部主治醫師詹鼎正解釋,簡單來說,當看到一位長者,外表看起來沒力、走路很慢等等,就有可能是衰弱症了。

「衰弱症是整體功能性衰退的重要指標。」長庚紀念醫院內科部一般內科暨高齡醫學科主任陳英仁進一步說明,當出現體重下降、活動力低、感覺無力、走路緩慢、肌力下降,這五項指標只要符合三項以上,就可以稱為衰弱症,前兩項則是前期徵兆。詹鼎正提醒,此測量對象為六十五歲以上的長者,目前醫界並不認為中年人適用於衰弱症的指標。

常運動:心跳加快才有效
至於評估之後,發現有衰弱症該怎麼辦?醫師會建議病人到老人醫學科門診做「周全性老年評估」找出真正的問題點,透過及早發現健康行為的改變,身體功能是可以回復的,甚至還能恢復得更好,年老並不等於一定會失能。

要預防衰弱、延緩失能,強化運動、均衡營養是關鍵。正常規律地運動可幫助老年人持續擁有活動力,陳英仁表示,運動可分為高強度「三四三」,即每周最少三次,一次最少四十五分鐘,心跳達每分鐘一三○下,最少持續十五分鐘;中強度為「五四一」,為每周最少五次,一次最少四十五分鐘,心跳每分鐘達一一○下,最少持續十五分鐘;若體力不佳,也可以分次,總計達十五分鐘即可。

有效的運動一定要讓心跳加快,最簡單的檢測方法,即評估運動時喘的程度,應達到有點喘,但還可以講話,才是最恰當的強度;若喘到沒法講話,就代表超出心臟可負荷的範圍。

Abstract
Technological advancements have become widespread, and their implementation into products of everyday use is accelerating. Technology has the potential to improve the lives of older adults by increasing their safety, security, and independence in daily life. However, too often older adults' capabilities and limitations are not considered in the design of current and future technologies. In 1990, the National Research Council identified the importance of human factors in the design of technology for an aging population. The goal of this chapter is to review research on aging and technology since that report to determine the contributions of human factors research to issues of aging and technology design. In this chapter we address the extent to which older adults use new technologies, factors to consider in the adoption of technology (e.g., attitudes), the influence of technology design on older adults' performance (e.g., design of input devices), and ways to optimize training for older adults in using new technologies (e.g., age-specific instructional designs). We then review emerging areas of research that may direct the focus of human factors research in the next decade. These areas of research include ubiquitous computing (e.g., home monitoring systems), health care technologies (e.g., telehealth), robotics (e.g., Nursebot), and automated systems (e.g., cruise control). Finally, we consider opportunities and challenges to human factors research as the field continues to address the questions of optimizing technology for older adult users.

Abstract
Objectives: I identify major theoretical and practical contributions to aging and human performance as reflected primarily in the pages of Human Factors.Background: Populations worldwide are aging. True experimental work on aging is not possible because age levels cannot be manipulated. Sophisticated theoretical frameworks and modeling techniques are required to reach valid inferences about age effects and age changes. Method:Citation analysis was used to identify articles in Human Factors dealing with age or aging and to rank them for citation impact. Results: Special issues on aging were followed by increased publication rates for articles on age or aging, particularly in the 1990s. Most-cited articles deal primarily with age and driving. Conclusions:Applied contributions rely on improved measurement of performance and on methodological advances, including simulation and modeling. Design changes that provide environmental support for declining cognitive, perceptual, and psychomotor abilities can serve as a powerful intervention for maintaining and improving older adult performance. Training is also a robust way to improve performance at both the basic ability level and the level of task performance. Human factors specialists can improve quality of life for an aging population. Applications: Guidelines for older users are now being developed by standards bodies and are implemented in domains such as Web design. Much of the focus of human factors research has been on improving efficiency in the performance of aging adults in the workforce, but reducing errors and increasing comfort and satisfaction in health-related activities should receive greater attention.

DESCRIPTION:

Jean-Pierre Auffret of the George Mason University School of Engineering reviewed and analyzed the status and potential of information and communications technology for healthcare in aging societies including the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia. Many developed economies are actively planning and adjusting for aging societies including Japan, Korea and Germany as well as the U.S. These countries have established healthcare and pension systems, community based senior services, and robust information and communications technology and mobile ecosystems which provide the flexibility for healthcare, social inclusion and labor productivity.

Abstract

The Environmental Gerontology Interest Group symposium presents five studies from the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada that focus on marginalized people and places. The studies interrogate barriers to and supports for aging in place, including the influence of mental health, challenges faced by homeless older adults, and effects of gentrification. Utilizing community-based participatory research approaches, as well as qualitative and quantitative methods, the studies examine hazardous contexts and precarious personal experiences often-overlooked in aging research and urban policymaking. The symposium critically explores themes of vulnerability in later life and demonstrates avenues for future research.

別太羨慕修長雙腿 研究:小腿太細恐引來肌少症
2018-11-09 21:33

〔即時新聞/綜合報導〕很多女生都希望擁有修長、纖細的雙腿,但其實小腿太細也不好。研究發現,50歲以上的男女若小腿圍小於34、32公分,就有肌肉量不足的風險,可能導致失能、甚至縮短壽命的後果。

綜合報導指出,國立陽明大學高齡與健康研究中心教授陳亮恭最近發表以小腿圍作為簡易評估肌肉量的大型研究成果,其中發現50歲以上男女,小腿圍若分別低於34、32公分,肌肉量就可能不足,其罹患肌少症風險更有約6成。陳亮恭指出,肌少症是指「肌肉量少」而且「肌力不足」,患者四肢無力就容易跌倒,嚴重可能導致失能、甚至縮短壽命。
