used measure of physical function in older adults ( Guralnik et al., 1994 ). The SPPB consists of three exercises (balance, 4-m gait speed, and five chair rises) that are scored on a scale of 0–4 and summed for a total score of 0–12; high scores indicate a higher level of function. Evidence exists for
