Clinical balance and mobility tests may be able to detect such aging effects. As the first step to approaching this question, the purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effects of arm movements on the performance of clinical balance and mobility tests. Ten participants were evaluated in four clinical tests: (1) Maximal… CONTINUE READING
