Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

Jack M. Guralnik mostly deals with Gerontology, Physical therapy, Activities of daily living, Internal medicine and Preferred walking speed. He interconnects Physical disability, Epidemiology, Cohort study, Anemia and Risk factor in the investigation of issues within Gerontology. His Physical therapy research includes elements of Body mass index, Randomized controlled trial, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Confidence interval.

His study in Activities of daily living is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Physical fitness, MEDLINE, Cross-sectional study, Geriatrics and Physical function. His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Endocrinology, Surgery and Cardiology. His studies in Preferred walking speed integrate themes in fields like Sarcopenia, Hand strength, Grip strength and Intermittent claudication.

His most cited work include:

  • A short physical performance battery assessing lower extremity function: association with self-reported disability and prediction of mortality and nursing home admission. (5344 citations)
  • Lower-Extremity Function in Persons over the Age of 70 Years as a Predictor of Subsequent Disability (2931 citations)
  • Gait speed and survival in older adults. (2425 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Gerontology, Physical therapy, Internal medicine, Activities of daily living and Confidence interval. His study on Gerontology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Cohort study and related Cohort,
  • Epidemiology, which have a strong connection to Public health. The Physical therapy study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Prospective cohort study, Randomized controlled trial and Physical medicine and rehabilitation.

The concepts of his Randomized controlled trial study are interwoven with issues in Intervention and Clinical trial. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Endocrinology, Surgery and Cardiology. Confidence interval is closely attributed to Odds ratio in his research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gerontology (36.42%)
  • Physical therapy (29.93%)
  • Internal medicine (28.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Gerontology (36.42%)
  • Physical therapy (29.93%)
  • Internal medicine (28.49%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Gerontology, Physical therapy, Internal medicine, Randomized controlled trial and Confidence interval. Jack M. Guralnik combines subjects such as Intervention, Cross-sectional study, Cognition and Mobility disability, Activities of daily living with his study of Gerontology. His Physical therapy research includes themes of Body mass index, Odds ratio, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Hazard ratio and Health education.

His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Endocrinology and Cardiology. Jack M. Guralnik works mostly in the field of Cardiology, limiting it down to topics relating to Confounding and, in certain cases, Prospective cohort study and Incidence, as a part of the same area of interest. His research on Randomized controlled trial also deals with topics like

  • Clinical trial that intertwine with fields like Sarcopenia and Adverse effect,
  • Grip strength together with Muscle weakness and Preferred walking speed.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Short Physical Performance Battery and all-cause mortality: systematic review and meta-analysis (218 citations)
  • Effect of a 24-Month Physical Activity Intervention vs Health Education on Cognitive Outcomes in Sedentary Older Adults: The LIFE Randomized Trial (193 citations)
  • International Clinical Practice Guidelines for Sarcopenia (ICFSR): Screening, Diagnosis and Management (182 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

Jack M. Guralnik spends much of his time researching Gerontology, Physical therapy, Randomized controlled trial, Sarcopenia and Hazard ratio. His Gerontology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cross-sectional study, Body mass index, Physical function and Activities of daily living. His work carried out in the field of Physical therapy brings together such families of science as Odds ratio, Internal medicine, Intervention, Dementia and Health education.

His research in Randomized controlled trial intersects with topics in Psychological intervention, Arterial disease, Clinical trial, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Disease. His Sarcopenia study also includes fields such as

  • Weakness which is related to area like Cohort study,
  • Preferred walking speed most often made with reference to Grip strength,
  • Muscle weakness which intersects with area such as Forearm, Isometric exercise, Gait speed and Leg extension,
  • Hand strength which intersects with area such as Predictive value of tests. His research investigates the connection between Risk factor and topics such as Prospective cohort study that intersect with issues in Cardiology.
