Applying different mathematical variability methods to identify older fallers and non-fallers using gait variability data
(Aging Clinical and Experimental Research, 2017-06-01) [Artigo]
Background: The clinical assessment of gait variability may be a particularly powerful tool in the screening of older adults at risk of falling. Measurement of gait variability is important in the assessment of fall risk, ...
Neuromuscular performance in the hip joint of elderly fallers and non-fallers
(Aging Clinical And Experimental Research, 2016-06-01) [Artigo]
Backgrounds Low strength and neuromuscular activation of the lower limbs have been associated with falls making it an important predictor of functional status in the elderly. Aim To compare the rate of neuromuscular ...
Association between energy cost of walking, muscle activation, and biomechanical parameters in older female fallers and non-fallers
(Clinical Biomechanics, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
Objective: To determine the nervous activation, muscle strength, and biomechanical parameters that influence the cost of walking in older fallers and non-fallers. Methods: Maximal voluntary isokinetic torque was measured ...
Lower limb strength is associated with gait biomechanical abnormalities in older female fallers and non-fallers
(Isokinetics and Exercise Science, 2013-06-17) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: Age-related loss in lower limb strength is related with impaired mobility. However, the association between decreased lower limb strength and gait biomechanical abnormalities is unclear. %In line with this, ...
Effects of high and low volume of strength training on muscle strength, muscle volume and lipid profile in postmenopausal women
(Journal of Exercise Science and Fitness, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
Changes in lipid profile are considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), especially in postmenopausal woman who have been associated with age-related loss of muscle mass. The beneficial role of aerobic ...
