Objectives: Association of grip strength (GS) with anthropometric parameters has been reported. Our objective was to assess grip strength in 6 to 18-year-old healthy Indian children (urban and rural) and study the association of GS with body composition.Methods: This was a part of a multicenter, cross-sectional, observational school-based study; multi-stage stratified random sampling was carried out and children (n=1980) from various urban (...

Objective: Children in rural areas have inadequate nutritional intake, hence their muscle function may be compromised. The objective of this study was to study the determinants of muscle function in rural Indian school going children.Methods: We cross sectionally studied 232 prepubertal school going children (106 girls) aged 6–11 years, from 2 different villages in rural area around Pune city in July 2018. Height, weight, body composition (bioelectr...

Objective: Bone adapts to mechanical stimuli by increasing its mass and changing geometry; muscles are the stimulators for this change as they induce forces through contractions. Thus, bone strength is driven by muscle function. Research has shown that muscle mass and muscle function may not be proportional and hence analysing muscle function becomes of crucial importance. Here we propose to establish gender specific paediatric reference data for muscle function parameters ass...

Objective: Although there is adequate sunlight throughout the year, low serum 25OHD concentrations are being increasingly reported among Indian children (Gupta, 2014). Thus, quantifying individual sunlight exposure may be an important step in understanding hypovitaminosis D in sun-rich geographies. The objectives of our study were to quantify the sunlight exposure of school-children using a questionnaire and to use polysulphone film badges to validate the questionnaire adminis...
