Kaneko, Masahiro, Ed.
This comprehensive collection of current research on the health and fitness of the aged, the disabled, and the industrial worker examines the growing health problems in those populations. These problems are the result of the rising proportion of elderly and disabled citizens in Western countries and the increasing exposure of industrial workers to health risks. These research reports are of interest to exercise scientists, gerontologists, adapted physical activity specialists, and fitness professionals. (JD)
