Med Sci Sports Exerc 43:647-54. 2011..There are many health and social benefits of physical activity (PA) for older adults, but little is known about their activity patterns...
- Getting out and about in older adults: the nature of daily trips and their association with objectively assessed physical activityMark G Davis
University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
