AIM To test the hypothesis that static balance is associated with site-specific loss of muscle mass in older adults. METHODS A total of 57 active women aged 52-83 years had their muscle thickness (MTH) measured by ultrasound at four sites on the anterior and posterior aspects of their upper- and lower-leg. MTH ratios were calculated to assess the site-specific muscle loss. One-leg standing balance with eyes open and maximum isometric knee extension/flexion strength were measured.
