University of Maryland Older Americans Independence Center OAIC Overview July 19,2013 PIs: Andrew Goldberg, MD Jay Magaziner, PhD, MS Hyg
University of Maryland Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center Mission: Cardiovascular and neuromotor deconditioning are fundamental to the functional impairments and disabilities observed in older people with chronic disease. The goals of the UM-OAIC are to determine the mechanisms and efficacy of motor learning-based exercise rehabilitation programs designed to restore and maintain function and the prevent the functional declines that put older adults with chronic disease at risk for disability.

Conceptual Model of the UM-OAIC Preventive and Restorative Research in Chronic Diseases of Aging Interdisciplinary Conceptual Model Functional Recovery Aging Clinical Phenotypes Exercise & Neuromotor Learning Rehabilitation Functional Outcomes and Translation into the Community Chronic Disease Improved Quality of Life Pathophysiology& Mechanisms of Functional Impairments Acute Event “Free-Living” Independence Research Working Groups(RC-1) • Community Trials • “Real World” Outcomes • Medical Practice Preventive& Restorative Lifestyle Habits Clinical Evaluation(RC-2) Mechanisms (RC-2,3) Interventions(RC-2,3)
RC1: Biostatistics, Informatics & Translational Research Specific Aims: • To provide biostatistical and informatics support to investigators, • Foster the design of motor learning-based exercise rehabilitation interventions • Facilitate the translation of interventions from the laboratory to the clinic and the community • Organize Research Working Groups (RWGs) that will assist OAIC investigators in the design and conduct of research studies
RC-1 Research RO1: Community Ambulation Following Hip Fracture (3 clinical sites) • Primary Aim: To determine if a “specific” 16-week multi-modal intervention based on aerobic conditioning, specificity of training, and muscle overload initiated 2-3 months post fracture is more successful in producing community ambulators than a “non-specific” multi-modal control intervention of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, flexibility activities, and active range of motion exercises.
R37: Effects of Multi-Modal Exercise Intervention Post Hip Fracture • This is an ancillary study to the Phase III RO1 randomized clinical trial, with specific aims to evaluate mechanisms underlying community ambulation: body composition, bone turnover, hormone regulation, aerobic capacity, balance, gait, inflammation, affect, and cognition.
RC 2: Applied Physiology and Tissue Mechanisms Specific Aims: • Facilitate the conduct of musculoskeletal and tissue mechanistic exercise rehabilitation and preventive medical research in aging and disability across the UM-OAIC projects • Perform medical assessments and cardiovascular screening of research volunteers to ensure patient safety and eligibility for research protocols. • Develop and test of novel exercise-based interventions in older volunteers in UM-OAIC research. • Conduct clinical applied training in translational research and the assessment of cardiovascular and physiological outcomes of exercise rehabilitation in aging and laboratory training of standardized core methodologies to facilitate translational research. • Provide study support, mentor and train UM-OAIC researchers in the performance of applied exercise physiology and tissue mechanisms research relevant to exercise–based rehabilitation in older people with chronic disabling diseases

Stroke. 2011: 42(2):416-420 RT Reduces Muscle Myostatin mRNA Muscle Hypertrophy after RT 16% 40% 14% 49% 27%
RC 3: Mobility and Neuromotor Plasticity Specific Aims • Provide expertise and investigator resources to assess the multi-system neuromotor, biomechanical, motor learning and behavioral factors affecting mobility performance. • Design and conduct of novel motor learning based exercise interventions: • Determine the quantitative measures of whole-body multi-segmental neuromotor control • Understanding the mechanisms of exercise-mediated neuroplasticity of balance, locomotion, and upper limb activities in older people with chronic diseases. • Mentor junior faculty and train UM-OAIC investigators in the mechanistic study of neuromotor control, exercise-mediated neuroplasticity and motor learning.
RO1: Intervention to Enhance Lateral Balance Function& Prevent Falls in Aging • Specific Aims • To determine the effects of (a) step training, (b) hip abductor-adductor(AB-AD) muscle strengthening, and (c) a combined step training & muscle strengthening program compared to (d) a standard flexibility & relaxation program (control) on the stepping response characteristics to an external balance perturbation. • To determine the effect of step training, with and without the strengthening intervention, compared to the control group on maximum hip AB-AD joint torque and power. • Secondary aim is to determine the prospective fall frequency of the different intervention groups during monthly follow-up for 1-year post-training.
Robotics Training after Stroke Mission and Long-term Objectives: Develop and deploy state-of-the-art modular lower extremity robotic technology to improve walking and balance function and promote durable benefits toward mobility independence in older individuals with stroke and other neurologic diseases.
Deficit-adjusted Robotics Training after Stroke • Deficit-adjusted robotic assistance • Terminal stance: push-off for propulsion • Swing: drop foot and safe landing • Level of robotic assistance • Biomechanical models specific to deficit • Capacity to predict optimal robotic support Can a deficit-adjusted approach reduce drop foot and/or increase push off propulsion in chronic hemiparetic stroke?

UM-OAIC Research Career Development Core • Goals: • Provide an enriched, mentor-based research training and educational environment to: • Promote the career development of junior faculty toward independence as investigators in aging-related researchrelated to the UM-OAIC themes. • Train future leaders in academic gerontology and geriatric medicine. • Support the training of trainees and junior faculty pursuing research careers in aging by emphasizing multidisciplinary training to learn novel approaches to improving function and independence in older people.
