Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

The Timed Up and Go Components (TUGc) test may accurately illustrate activities of daily living (ADLs) participation and restriction in active community-dwelling older adults. Three mobility components were moderately correlated to three different ADLs. Age does not appear to be a factor. Testing mobility components may enhance practice.
