OBJECTIVE This study tried to isolate critical biomechanical factors in fall arrests using the upper extremity during simulated forward falls. This study also attempted to find the differences in those factors between young and old age groups. BACKGROUND The role of the upper extremity is not well defined despite its primary usage as a local shock absorber during fall impact. DESIGN Comparative study in which two age groups underwent motion analysis.Methods. Ten healthy older males (mean… CONTINUE READING
