Linking Mastery Across the Life Course to Mobility Device Use in Later Life.

Summary of "Linking Mastery Across the Life Course to Mobility Device Use in Later Life."

Mastery in older ages is shaped by earlier-life experiences. Prior research has demonstrated that mastery is associated with health-promoting behaviors; however, little research has examined whether mastery histories influence health behaviors such as mobility device use in later life.

Day-to-day mastery and self-efficacy changes during a smoking quit attempt: Two studies.

In social-cognitive theory, it is hypothesized that mastery experiences (successfully implementing behaviour change) are a source of self-efficacy, and self-efficacy increases the opportunity for expe...

Age related differences in segment coordination and its variability during gait.

Aging is associated with a loss of mobility and altered gait mechanics. Loss of function and mobility may be due to or exacerbated by low levels of physical activity in the aged. The mechanisms linkin...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An electrophoretic technique for assaying the binding of one compound to another. Typically one compound is labeled to follow its mobility during electrophoresis. If the labeled compound is bound by the other compound, then the mobility of the labeled compound through the electrophoretic medium will be retarded.

Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.

The upward or downward mobility in an occupation or the change from one occupation to another.

Presentation of pertinent data by one with special skill or knowledge representing mastery of a particular subject.

Device designed to wear externally to support muscular skeletal system in various movements such as RANGE OF MOTIONS; WEIGHT-BEARING; GAIT; and LOCOMOTION.
