ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint on the study regarding the connection between handgrip strength and mortality in older people in Leiden, the Netherlands. The study had 555 participants aged 85 years old and above whose grip strength was measured and baseline data including physical activity, comorbidities, and functional status were collected. Results revealed that 80% of the subjects died during the follow-up period and mortality was increased with the loss of handgrip strength over five years.
