PURPOSE Muscle strength (force) and power (force x velocity) are reduced in Parkinson's disease (PD). Reduced muscle power is associated with slower walking velocity and falls in the older population, but these associations in people with PD have not previously been investigated. This study investigated the relationships between leg extensor muscle power and strength with walking speed and past falls in people with PD. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS Forty people with mild to moderate PD were… CONTINUE READING
