- Older employees fitter with program consisting of monthly physiotherapy sessions
- Unclear whether older employees were indeed more physically active
- Body composition remains almost the same after six months

This the conclusion of a randomised study with data of 59 Japanese industry workers aged sixty years and older who returned for physical testing six months after following one of both interventions.
