Currently, Bohannon’s research and teaching is focused on the measurement, implications, and treatment of activity limitations in older adult and neurologic populations. The classic test of strength for a man is if he can open the jar in the kitchen that just won’t budge for anyone else. New research is showing that Grandpa may have been better at opening jars than Dad! In just one generation grip strength has decreased in Millennials by 20%!
