Compensatory Postural Adjustments in Older Adults
What is it about?
Age-related changes in sensory, motor and musculoskeletal systems may cause important limitations in postural stability of older adults, there is a couple of differences between them and young adults in terms of magnitude and latency of muscular activation to body perturbations in standing position.
Why is it important?
we hypothesized that latencies of postural muscles activation will be delayed in older adults in relation to the control young subjects. Our second hypothesis is that the delayed muscle latencies of the older adult fallers will be heightened compared with those in non-fallers
