Stepwise regression was performed to verify the association between these variables and the level of BADL and IADL in the elderly participants
Stepwise regression was performed to verify the association between these variables and the level of BADL and IADL in the elderly participants. Results showed that balance (β -. 1, p < . 1) and perception of physical functioning (β . 2, p < . 001) were the key individual variables related to BADL scores, and IADL score was associated with perception of physical functioning (β . 0, p < . 001) and upper limb strength (β . 5).
