[Research Presentation] It is quite important to maintain the balance between an activity and a rest to improve the healthy life of the elderly. In this study, we aimed to reveal the relationship between a subjective feeling of sleep for an essential measurement of sleep quality and exercise quantity in the elderly. For 44 people older than 65 years old who voluntarily participated in the exercise program that the NPO offered, we examined their subjective feelings of sleep (the OSA-MA version), exercise quantity, and activities. We revealed that their subjective feelings of sleep and exercise quantity in the afternoon are related. This result indicates that exercises in the afternoon of the elderly may improve their subjective sleep qualities, and have an effect on recovering from their fatigue and maintaining their sleep. Furthermore, we found that total hours of activities and subjective feelings of sleep are negatively related, suggesting that excessive exercises of the elderly may spoil their sleep qualities. In conclusion, this study suggests that the OSA-MA version is useful as an index to evaluate the suitable amount of exercises and activities of the elderly to maintain their sleep qualities.
