Abstract

This 3-year longitudinal study among older adults showed that declining muscle mass, strength, power, and physical performance are independent contributing factors to increased fear of falling, while declines of muscle mass and physical performance contribute to deterioration of quality of life. Our findings reinforce the importance of preserving muscle health with advancing age. INTRODUCTION: The age-associated loss of skeletal muscle quantity and function are critical determinants of independent physical functioning in later life. Longitudinal studies investigating how decrements in muscle components of sarcopenia impact fear of falling (FoF) and quality of life (QoL) in older adults are lacking. METHODS: Twenty-six healthy older subjects (age, 74.1 +/- 3.7; Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) score >/=10) and 22 mobility-limited older subjects (age, 77.2 +/- 4.4; SPPB score
