Sit-to-walk (STW) motion is essential for daily activities. Falls frequently occur, when there is impaired ability to perform STW movements. This study investigated the relationships between the dynamical characteristics of STW motion and physical functions of elderly people. 128 elderly (51 males and 77 females, above 65 years) participated in this study… CONTINUE READING
