Equilíbrio corporal, função física, forca muscular, idoso, institucionalização. The timed up and go: a test of basic functional mobility for frail elderly persons.

Obesity: preventing and managing the global epidemic. Mini-mental state: a practical method for grading the cognitive state of patients for the clinician.
