The purpose of this study is to examine the predictive validity of seven mobility-related performance tests to identify and predict older adults' mobility disability status after a 2-year period. Among the 287 community-dwelling older adults who participated in the baseline assessment (physical disability status and seven performance tests), those who reported no mobility disability (n=192) at baseline assessment were followed up at 2 years. A total of 120 participants returned for the follow… CONTINUE READING
