STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study using a cross-sectional design. OBJECTIVES To compare lower extremity force applications during a sit-to-stand (STS) task with and without upper extremity assistance in older individuals post-hip fracture to those of age-matched controls. BACKGROUND A recent study documented the dependence on upper extremity assistance and the uninvolved lower limb during an STS task in individuals post-hip fracture. This study extends this work by examining the… CONTINUE READING
