  1. MW minimum wage, BMI body mass index
  2. aChair stands were evaluated by asking the participants to stand up and sit down as quickly as possible. Greater measures indicate longer times to complete the task (worse performance)
  3. bGait was measured with a four meter walk at the participants’ usual speed. Greater measures indicate faster gait speed (better performance)
  4. cBalance was measured by asking the participant to stand unaided on one leg, with eyes open and closed. High values indicate better ability to sustain a position (better performance)
