Older adults exhibit altered motor coordination during an upper limb object transport task requiring a lateral change in support.

Abstract

Investigating an ecologically relevant upper limb task, such as manually transporting an object with a concurrent lateral change in support (sidestepping alongside a kitchen counter), may provide greater insight into potential deficits in postural stability, variability and motor coordination in older adults. Nine healthy young and eleven older, community… (More)
