BACKGROUND An experiment was designed to examine the effects of a decrease in threshold joint position sense (TJPS) at the knee and ankle and of total knee replacement (TKR) on postural control in older adults. It was hypothesized that older adults with a decrease in TJPS and those who had undergone TKR would display increased center of pressure (COP) variance during quiet stance and late onsets for muscle responses to balance threats. METHODS Older adult subjects (> or = 70 years) were… CONTINUE READING
