The article offers information on a study conducted by the authors related to role of sense of coherence (SOC) in post myocardial infarction (MI) physical activity in central Israel. It states that 643 MI patients aged 65 years or above were followed up to 13 years. It reports that SOC was associated with leisure time physical activity (LTPA) and there was a strong association after controlling for MI depression and severity.
