  1. Fulltext. Risk due to inactivity in physically capable older adults.

    Article - En anglais



    This study examined the association between recreational physical activity among physically capable older adults and functional status, incidence, and mortality over 3 and 6 years.


    Data are from three sites of the established populations for epidemiology studies of the elderly.


    A high level of recreational physical activity reduced the likelihood of mortality over both 3 and 6 years.

    Moderate to high activity reduced the risk of physical impairments over 3 years ; this effect diminishes over 6 years.
