Long-term strength and balance training prevents mobility decline among community-dwelling people aged 75 and older Aartolahti, Eeva (University of Jyväskylä, 2016)High functional capacity of muscle strength and balance in older persons promotes independent mobility and prevents functional decline below the disability threshold. This dissertation explored the effects of strength ...
Handgrip strength asymmetry is associated with slow gait speed and poorer standing balance in older Americans McGrath, Ryan; Lang, Justin J.; Ortega, Francisco B.; Chaput, Jean-Philippe; Zhang, Kai; Smith, Joseph; Vincent, Brenda; Castro Piñero, Jose; Cuenca Garcia, Magdalena; Tomkinson, Grant R. (Elsevier BV, 2022)Introduction Handgrip strength (HGS) asymmetry may help identify the functional asymmetries that contribute to mobility limitations. We sought to determine the associations of HGS asymmetry on gait speed and standing balance ...
