Grip Strength Associated with Fewer Falls

Age AgeingA new publication in Age and Ageing shows, amongst other things, that grip strength differs in healthcare settings and has an association with falls; "broadly higher grip strength was associated in univariate analyses with younger age, greater height and weight, fewer comorbidities, higher Barthel score, higher MMSE score, better nutritional status and fewer falls".

You can read the abstract and the full article on the Age and Ageing website.
