Control of Walking Speed in Young and Old Adults
(East Carolina University, 2012)
Walking is a basic form of locomotion and walking velocity is a good predictor of human health, with faster velocities indicating better health. While faster walking velocities have been attributed to overall increases ...
The Relationships Between Physical Capacity And Biomechanical Plasticity With Age During Level And Incline Walking
(East Carolina University, 2017-05-11)
Old compared to young adults exhibit a distal-to-proximal redistribution of joint contributions to support phase mechanics during level and incline walking. Although this biomechanical plasticity is now well established ...
THE VARIATION IN STRENGTH DECREMENT OF LOWER EXTREMITY MUSCLE GROUPS AND BIOMECHANICAL PLASTICITY IN OLDER ADULTS
(East Carolina University, 2019-08-13)
Age-associated biomechanical plasticity (BP) has been established as the distal to proximal shift of joint mechanical output in old adults while walking. The cause of BP is still unknown, but changes in muscle strength of ...
