Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

This cross-sectional study found levels of physical activity—in terms of overall activity, physical exercise, and walking—that correspond to lowest risk of falling. This study provides evidence to strengthen occupational therapy’s philosophy of activity promotion and ideas for future research.
