walk test and timed up and go test (TUG; Burton et al., 2018 ). The 6-min walk test is used to determine whether aerobic endurance has changed, and the TUG is used to determine balance and mobility. It must be noted that only two interventions were conducted within or partly in the home. Iliffe et al

, although sophisticated devices, such as inclinometers, are available. In team sports or military cohorts, practitioners may apply test batteries that incorporate flexibility or mobility tasks to evaluate individual joint ROM or muscle length, and time availability is one of the key limiting factors. 4 – 6

factors underlying older adults’ perceptions of environmental outdoor mobility facilitators and the influence of these on their PA. Categorizing neighborhoods into the city center, subcenters, and dense and disperse areas outside centers could also enhance the value of research results for urban planning

functional limitations within cognition, mobility, sensory, or self-care domains. Methods Data Source This study is a secondary, cross-sectional analysis of publicly available data drawn from the most current NSCH cycles, 2016 and 2017. NSCH is a national survey sponsored by the Maternal and Child Health

. However, the vast majority of studies examining correlates of physical activity have focused on patients with end-stage CKD; few studies looked at individuals who are not in end stage. As patients with earlier stage CKD may experience fewer complications, less symptom burden, less physical mobility

dysfunctions affect various domains, especially mental processing speed, attention, memory, and executive function ( Harada, Natelson, & Triebel, 2013 ). Aging-related phenotypic expressions include, among others, gait dysfunction and mobility limitations ( Blackwood, Shubert, Forgarty, & Chase, 2016 ). These
