Men with poor erectile function appear to have "significantly inferior" results on gait-related physical function assessments, according to a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study.
Working with a group of 324 men in Japan, the researchers used the 5-item International Index of Erectile Function to evaluate erections.
Gait functions were tested with a 10-meter gait speed test and a 2-step test. Grip strength was also tested.
