Objectives Intrinsic capacity (IC) is one of the latest views of positive aging. In its current status lacks a biological substrate amenable to be intervened. The aim of this study was to determine the association of allostatic load (AL) with IC.
Objectives To quantify the longitudinal change in stair climb performance (a measure indicative of both physical function and muscle power), determine whether physical activity is related to slower decline in performance, and to identify factors that modify the longitudinal change in performance among women from midlife to late life.
Objectives Few studies have focused on weight change and frailty, especially in Asia. This research aimed to evaluate midlife body mass index (BMI) trajectory and assess its relationship with frailty 8 years later in Taiwan.
Objective To ascertain the usefulness of a simulated clinical scene with actors in the classroom (theatrical performance) as a teaching tool for the management of falls and their related injuries.
Objectives Healthy ageing (HA) is a key concept and highly desirable phenomenon in every ageing and already old societies. The aim of our study was to evaluate the influence of socio-economic conditions as well as life-style and other health-related factors on the WHO definition of HA.
Objectives To investigate the influence of overweight and obesity on general performance and mortality in seniors.
