Congres / symposium / seminar

Physical functioning and social participation critically depend on our ability to move. Limitations in physical functioning are important to consider in healthy subjects and in diseased populations because of their widespread prevalence and their link to decreased quality of life, increased risk of disability, falls and fractures, and depression, and increased health care costs. Physical functioning is multidimensional and a critical reflection on the assessment of physical functioning and discussion of the outcomes in the aging and diseased populations is valuable for researchers within Amsterdam Movement Sciences. In this scientific meeting various modes of assessment of physical functioning will be presented and discussed in the context of the aging and different diseased populations.
