Background: While cardiorespiratory fitness is strongly related to survival, there are limited data regarding musculoskeletal fitness indicators. Our aim was to evaluate the association between the ability to sit and rise from the floor and all-cause mortality. Design: Retrospective cohort. Methods: 2002 adults aged 51–80 years (68% men) performed a sitting-rising test (SRT) to and from the floor, which was scored from 0 to 5, with one point being subtracted from 5 for each support used (hand… Expand
Sitting–rising test: Sex- and age-reference scores derived from 6141 adults
TLDR
In order to foster SRT use in clinical practice and considering that SRT scores tend to diminish with aging, reference values according to age are required for the correct interpretation of SRT scoring. Expand
The Relationship Between Performance of Sit-To-Stand From a Chair and Getting Down and Up From the Floor in Community-Dwelling Older Adults.
TLDR
The 5xSTS test displays concurrent, predictive, and discriminative validity properties, making it a potentially useful initial screening tool to predict floor transfer ability among community-dwelling older adults. Expand
Characteristics of Older Adults Who Are Unable to Perform a Floor Transfer: Considerations for Clinical Decision-Making
TLDR
This study has shown that the self-reported FT ability and actual FT test performance represented reliable alternative forms to assess the ability to transfer from a standing to a supine position on the floor and then back to an erect position. Expand
Bend Don't Break: Stretching Improves Scores on a Battery of Fall Assessment Tools in Older Adults.
TLDR
It is suggested that flexibility training can be an effective mode of low-level exercise to improve functional outcomes and Static stretching may help to improve musculoskeletal health, promote autonomy, and decrease mortality in community-dwelling older adults. Expand
Age-related mobility loss is joint-specific: an analysis from 6,000 Flexitest results
TLDR
The findings indicated that age-related loss of mobility is rather joint-specific, which could be related to distinct routine usage patterns of the major body joints along life. Expand
Validity and responsiveness of floor Sitting-Rising Test in Post-Total Knee Arthroplasty- A Cohort Study.
TLDR
The results add evidence to the validity of the floor sitting-rising test in patients post-TKA, and suggest that the SRT measures a physical function construct not captured by the other tests. Expand
The sitting and rising test for assessing people with chronic stroke
TLDR
The sitting-rising test is a reliable and sensitive test for assessing the quality of sitting and rising movements and a cut-off score of 7.8 best distinguished healthy older adults from stroke subjects. Expand
Associations between trunk muscle morphology, strength and function in older adults
TLDR
Analysis of associations between functional ability and trunk musculature in sixty-four community living males and females aged 60 years and older revealed significant correlations between trunk muscle size andfunctional ability and the importance of incorporating trunk muscle training into programs aimed at improving balance and mobility in older adults. Expand
STUDY OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FEAR OF FALLING & ABILITY TO SIT ON & RISE FROM THE FLOOR IN ELDERLY POPULATION
TLDR
There is a relationship between Fear of Fall and the ability to sit on and get up from the floor in the elderly population, and a partial correlation analysis was conducted to find a relationship. Expand
Fall Patterns Predict Mortality After Hip Fracture in Older Adults, Independent of Age, Sex, and Comorbidities.
TLDR
Specific fall patterns were associated with higher mortality in older adults with hip fracture, independent of age, sex, and comorbidities. Expand

Does Flexibility Influence the Ability to Sit and Rise from the Floor?
TLDR
Although seemingly simple tasks, the actions of sitting and rising from the floor are also partially dependent on flexibility in male and female subjects of a wide age range and future studies should explore the potential benefit of regular flexibility exercises for these actions. Expand
Association between muscular strength and mortality in men: prospective cohort study
TLDR
Muscular strength is inversely and independently associated with death from all causes and cancer in men, even after adjusting for cardiorespiratory fitness and other potential confounders. Expand
A prospective study of muscular strength and all-cause mortality in men with hypertension.
TLDR
High levels of muscular strength appear to protect hypertensive men against all-cause mortality, and this is in addition to the benefit provided by cardiorespiratory fitness. Expand
Exercise capacity and mortality in older men: a 20-year follow-up study.
TLDR
Exercise capacity is an independent predictor of all-cause mortality in older men, with most survival benefits achieved in those with an exercise capacity >5 METs, and survival improved significantly when unfit individuals became fit. Expand
Flexibility assessment: normative values for flexitest from 5 to 91 years of age.
TLDR
Normally updated normative values of Flexitest contribute to a better knowledge of the flexibility behavior with age and gender and will be useful for professionals who assess flexibility in their professional practice. Expand
AGE‐RELATED DECLINE IN HANDGRIP STRENGTH DIFFERS ACCORDING TO GENDER
TLDR
It is concluded that handgrip strength decline with age differs between genders, making useful the existence of distinct male and female normative age group data. Expand
Poor trunk flexibility is associated with arterial stiffening.
TLDR
It is suggested that flexibility may be a predictor of arterial stiffening, independent of other components of fitness. Expand
Heart rate recovery, exercise capacity, and mortality risk in male veterans
TLDR
Exercise capacity affects HRR-associated mortality substantially and should be considered when applying HRR to estimate mortality, particularly at 2 min post exercise. Expand
Risk factors for serious fall related injury in elderly women living at home
TLDR
The study suggests that rheumatic disorders and the inability to get up from lying on the floor were the strongest independent risk factors for serious fall related injury. Expand
Association of walking speed in late midlife with mortality: results from the Whitehall II cohort study
TLDR
In conclusion, walking speed measured in late midlife seems to be an important marker of mortality risk; multiple factors, in particular inflammatory markers, partially explain this association. Expand
