  1. aSelf-reported health status is measured by a five-point Likert-Scale, while the range of the physical functions scale and the psychological well-being scale are 0–48 and 0–27 respectively. Higher value means better health status in all of above three dimensions of health outcome
  2. bIn the Post Hot Tests, this table only presented the significant level of difference in each two groups’ means if taking UEBMI as a reference; * the mean difference is significant at the 0.05 level
  3. c***p < 0.001, at least one group was different in its means of health outcome with that in other groups
