Osteoarthritis constitutes one of the main reasons fora lower quality of life among theelderly. The aim of the work was to analyse factors affecting functional skills in the group ofpatients with coxarthrosis.

Material and methods
The study was conducted on 50 patients with diagnosed coxarthrosis (M16.0). Patients were selected in purposive samplingand underwent one examination. The quality of life was assessed with the use of EQ-5D-3L instrument and 36-Item Short FormHealth Survey (SF-36). Pain intensity was evaluated with the use of the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC)and the authors’ own questionnaire.The research was carried out at the Rehabilitation Ward of the 3rdMunicipal Hospital in Lodz. The results were analysed in six age groups:50-55, 55-60, 60-65, 65-70, 70-75 and 75-80.

Coxarthrosis was prevalent in the group of patients aged 75-80 (13 participants). Patients aged 50-55 subjectively assessed their quality of life at the highest level. Body mass index (BMI) did not affect the quality of life or pain intensity.

The quality of life of patients with coxarthrosis is related to age but it does not correlate with body mass.
