Changes in postural muscle dynamics as a function of age.

Abstract

Histologic studies have demonstrated both a decrease in size and loss in number of type II muscle fibers with increasing age. Although these age-related histologic changes are believed to result in decreased strength and functional capacity, age-related changes in muscle force dynamics have not been clearly elucidated. Using vibromyographic (VMG) techniques… (More)
