BACKGROUND Injuries most frequently related to accidents in elderly persons are falls during locomotion and stair ascent and descent. Although numerous risk factors have been related to falling behavior, effective strategies to predict and prevent falls have not evolved. The rationale underlying this study was that systematic experimental and analytical investigation of the effects of perturbations during locomotion and the subsequent requisites for recovery could lead to the development of… CONTINUE READING
