Regression model for the prediction of risk of sarcopenia among older adults

Background. Sarcopenia is a generalized loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength. Early identification is essential to minimize the adverse effects and consequences, which can help in the prevention and timely management of sarcopenia. Hence we developed a regression model for the prediction of sarcopenia. Methods. This study adopted a case-control design. The dependent variable … Continued

Electromyostimulation and whole-body vibration effects in elder sarcopenic patients

Background. Sarcopenia is a progressive and generalized loss of the skeletal muscle mass and function associated to aging. Among the different possible practical approaches, the Electromyostimulation (EMS) and the whole-body vibration (WBV) were proposed. The aim of this review is to synthetize the most up-to-date evidence behind the use of this therapeutic approaches. Methods. A … Continued
