Análise cinética e cinemática do levantar e andar em jovens e idosos
Alternative titleKinetic and kinematic analysis of sit to walk task in young and elderly people
MetadataShow full item record
The sit to walk (STW) is a task performed in daily life and is needed to know the older people behavior in this task. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate young (YG) and older people (OG) when performing the STW. Kinetic, kinematic and task performance were assessed by each group. Statistical procedures showed differences only for vertical maximal ground reaction force during the seat off, such as the lower time to perform this phase for YG. The aging lead a significant impact in the strength force in limbs, due to this the elderly spend more time to rising up a chair. Therewith greater attention is necessary in transition phase, mainly by elderly exposure and increased chance of falls.
