Kinematic and electromyographic analysis of rising from a chair during a "Sit-to-Walk" task in elderly subjects: role of strength.

Abstract

BACKGROUND With aging, the deterioration of the ability to rise from a chair constitutes a major source of disability and a factor contributing to the loss of autonomy. The aim of this study was to describe kinematic and electromyographic characteristics of rising from a chair during a Sit-to-Walk task and to investigate the relationships between lower limb… (More)
