Response to Locomotive Syndrome in Japan

Journal Title: International Journal of Current Science Research and Review - Year 2018, Vol 1, Issue 01


Locomotive syndrome is also known as “Locomo” and exercise organ syndrome. This disorder refers to disability resulting from daily physical activity, such as standing or sitting. The term Locomo appears to be used only in Japan. Interestingly, Locomo has been observed in cases in which motor function is impaired due to disorders of peripheral bones, muscles and joints, but also in cases of disorders involving the brain and nervous system. In the current paper, we describe the history of Locomo in Japan. In addition, we discuss future challenges related to Locomo, and provide a series of recommendations regarding the syndrome.
