Abstract

End-stage renal disease (ESRD) has become a global problem. ESRD occurs due to kidney disorders in filtering blood, thus requiring hemodialysis. This study aims to determine the effect of the range of motion (ROM) and Tai Chi intradialysis on the adequacy of hemodialysis undergone by ESRD patients. The design of this study included a quasi-experiment with a pretest-posttest control group approach. The sample selection was performed using a consecutive sampling technique and involved 64 respondents. The results showed that there were differences in adequacy before and after the intervention. Wilcoxon test (p = 0.005) showed that there was a significant effect on adequacy before and after ROM and Tai Chi interventions (1.67–1.73). The control and intervention groups were found to have a significant difference (p = 0.045). In conclusion, ROM and Tai Chi intradialysis exercises were more effective in increasing the adequacy of hemodialysis undergone by ESRD patients.
