Motoric Cognitive Risk Syndrome and Risk for Falls, Their Recurrence, and Postfall Fractures: Results From a Prospective Observational Population-Based Cohort Study

June 11, 2019

Motoric cognitive risk syndrome (MCR) is a predementia stage associated with increased risk for falls. There are conflicting results regarding its association with recurrent falls and no information about its association with postfall fractures. The aim of the study was to examine the association of MCR and its components [ie, slow walking speed and subjective cognitive complaint (SCC)] with the occurrence of falls, their recurrence, and postfall fractures in older community-dwelling adults.
