The aim of this project is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle among the elderly in Hong Kong, improve their muscle function, and reduce the severity of musculoskeletal problems. To achieve this goal, peer leaders have been recruited and trained as Mus-Fit Ambassadors to lead their peer groups and convey health messages to the community. Experts from the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology at CUHK and the Dr. Stephen Hui Research Centre for Physical Recreation and Wellness at HKBU worked together to organize an Ambassador Training Course and implement this health promotion project for the elderly in Hong Kong, with the evaluation of their musculoskeletal health conditions as outcome measures. We also established online platforms to reach and educate the elderly in Hong Kong about a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise, with a focus on muscle strengthening to prevent and relieve musculoskeletal problems, especially in the shoulder, neck, lower back, and knees.
