Work ability, functional exercise capacity and prevalence of obesity in peri- and post-menopausal women with non-manual employment.
Int J Occup Saf Ergon 2019; :1-22IJ

Abstract

Objectives:

To evaluate work ability, functional exercise capacity and their correlation to each other and to obesity in peri- and post-menopausal women with non-manual employment. Material and

Methods:

The study included 300 women aged 44-66 years. The following measures were used: work ability index (WAI), 6 minute walk test (6MWT), body mass index (BMI), waist-hip ratio (WHR) and adipose tissue accumulation. Regression models of WAI and distance in 6MWT were estimated.

Results:

The examined women obtained WAI 39.0 ± 5.0, BMI 26.2 ± 4.6, WHR 0.819 ± 0.060, adipose tissue accumulation 30.1 ± 6.1% on average. About 19% women obtained a very good work ability score, 55%  good, 23%  medium, 3%  poor. About 17% women were obese, 39% - overweight, 44%  with normal body mass, 29% had abdominal obesity, 19% had elevated accumulation of adipose tissue and 21%  high. Those results did not differ significantly between peri- and post-menopausal women The post-menopausal women obtained a significantly lower functional exercise capacity score than peri-menopausal women.

Conclusion:

Work ability correlates positively to functional exercise capacity, which correlates negatively to adipose tissue accumulation in perimenopausal women with non-manual employment, but not in post-menopausal cases.
