There is one clinical trial.
This is a randomized trial of home-based exercises versus control for older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. The hypothesis is that participation in a home-based program will reduce the risk of adverse effects of physical distancing by decreasing patient-reported disability, improving mental health and avoiding hospitalization or institutionalization for vulnerable older people
