30 to 60% of the acute hospitalized older adults experience functional decline after hospitalization. The first signs of functional decline after discharge can often be observed in the inability to perform mobility tasks, such as raising from a chair or walking. Information how mobility develops over time is scarce. Insight in the course of mobility is needed to prevent and decrease mobility limitations.

To investigate the effect of muscle strength exercise training (MSET) on lean mass (LM) gain and muscle hypertrophy in older patients with lower limb osteoarthritis (OA).
Low alanine aminotransferase (ALT) level is associated with frailty in the older adult population. We investigated the usefulness of ALT in predicting low muscle strength among older patients with dia...
We investigated the correlation between abdominal trunk muscle strength and spinal deformities in middle-aged and older women. The results indicated that abdominal trunk muscle weakness, older age, an...
The number of chronic diseases is associated with the reduction in muscle mass and strength in older people (≥60 y of age). The purpose of this study was to asses the association between multimorbid...
Aging is associated with an attenuated hypertrophic response to resistance training and periods of training interruptions. Hence, elderly would benefit from the 'muscle memory' effects of resistance t...
This research study is looking at the effects of a whey protein nutritional supplement on changes in muscle mass, strength and physical function in response to a 6 month program of strengt...
Type 2 diabetes results in a host of neuromuscular, muscular, and autonomic system impairments that accelerate age-associated limitations in functional independence and the risk of falls. ...
Aging is associated with a loss of muscle mass, termed sarcopenia, that reduces mobility, decreases physical function and accelerates progression of other age-related disorders. This study...
Children with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) have impaired bone strength, fractures, weak muscles and limited mobility. Mild to moderate forms of OI (type 1 and 4) may benefit from muscle tr...
This observational study aims to assess the relationship between muscle strength and physical function in critical ill patients. Grip and quadriceps strengths are measured using a standard...
The amount of force generated by MUSCLE CONTRACTION. Muscle strength can be measured during isometric, isotonic, or isokinetic contraction, either manually or using a device such as a MUSCLE STRENGTH DYNAMOMETER.
A device that measures MUSCLE STRENGTH during muscle contraction, such as gripping, pushing, and pulling. It is used to evaluate the health status of muscle in sports medicine or physical therapy.
Older adults or aged individuals who are lacking in general strength and are unusually susceptible to disease or to other infirmity.
The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.
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.
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
