CBS: Handshake Might Be Indicator Of Health

VODCAST - 09 May 2014 Warren Sanderson on CBS


Warren Sanderson was interviewed by CBS New York on his paper published in PLOS ONE together with Sergei Scherbov. The authors used hand-grip strength for measuring age and show wide differences between the rates of aging among different population groups.

Warren Sanderson and Sergei Scherbov have conducted research in the field of aging in the last years and developed new measures of age and aging. Together, they are working on the the Reassessing Ageing from a Population Perspective (Re-Ageing) project at IIASA that, among other things, ascertains the extent to which advanced societies are actually aging in multiple dimensions, including health, cognitive abilities, and longevity.
