OBJECTIVES To determine the extent of muscle weakness in older female hip fracture patients compared with healthy older and young women; to determine the extent to which this weakness is caused by a decline of the force produced per unit area of muscle rather than by a decline in muscle bulk; and to investigate the mechanism of the decline in force per unit area. DESIGN This was an open study of three groups of subjects, two age matched older groups and one young group. SETTING University… CONTINUE READING
