Abstract

This study sought to evaluate the efficacy of physical therapy on both activities of daily living (ADLs) and life participation among hemodialysis patients. Modified questionnaires were used for data collection, specifically the Barthel Activities of Daily Living Index and the Kidney Disease Quality of Life Short Form (KDQOL-SF) Survey. Statistical analyses, including Chi-Square and Paired Sample T-test, were utilized to investigate the correlation between patient independence in ADLs and their level of life participation before and during physical therapy treatment. The findings, derived from data collected from a sample of 32 respondents, revealed a statistically significant improvement in patients’ independence in ADLs following physical therapy intervention. This underscores the positive impact of therapeutic measures on ADLs. Additionally, a notable increase in the extent of patients’ life participation was observed during physical therapy treatment, indicating a significant improvement in this aspect. This study underscores the beneficial effects of physical therapy in enhancing functional abilities, particularly in improving ADLs among hemodialysis patients. It underscores the importance of such interventions in enriching the overall quality of life for individuals undergoing hemodialysis.
