Standing up, sitting down and walking require considerable effort and coordination, which are crucial indicators to rehabilitation (e.g. stroke), and in older populations may indicate the onset of frailty and physical and cognitive decline. Currently, there are few reports robustly quantifying sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit transitions in free-living environments. The aim of this study was to identify and quantify these transitions using the peak velocity of sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit transitions to determine if these velocities were different in a healthy cohort and a mobility-impaired population.

Since the turn of the 21st century we see a renewed interest in the impact of hospital environments on children's well-being. In this article, we study the spatiality of children affected by cancer, i...
Postural stability during sit-to-stand (STS) movements depends on visual and somatosensory information. A modification of the 30-sec chair-stand test (30s-CST) with visual and somatosensory alteration...
Rising from a chair is an important functional measure after stroke. Originally developed as a measure of lower-limb strength, the five times sit-to-stand test has shown associations with other measur...
New Zealand courts are increasingly finding people unfit to stand trial. It is therefore important that the topic is carefully explored. For instance, should an assessment of fitness to stand trial in...
To evaluate the effectiveness and user satisfaction with the sit-to-stand (STS) assistance system of a smart walker (SW), and to identify factors associated with them in potential users.
The purpose of this study is to see if providing training using a Sit-to-Stand protocol for residents of Long-Term Care Facilities who have had a stroke will increase their independence in...
A trial testing the efficacy of sit-stand workstations on decreasing sitting time and increasing light-intensity physical activity in samples of office worksites.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a device that allows office workers to sit or stand whilst working can reduce their sitting time at work and improve their health over 8...
The purpose of the expanded study is to examine the effectiveness of a "Stand Up and Move More" intervention to reduce sedentary behavior in older adults from underserved communities.
1. Do different arm placements (including arms on armrests/devices, arms on knees, arms free, and arm crossed over chest) influence outcomes of sit-to-stand test (STST) in ambula...
Slender, threadlike family of ALGAE, in the order Charales, that are closely related to PLANTS. They differ from GREEN ALGAE in that they grow upright with branches off a central stand.
A stand-alone drug plan offered by insurers and other private companies to beneficiaries that receive their Medicare Part A and/or B benefits through the Original Medicare Plan. It includes Medicare Private Fee-for-Service Plans that do not offer prescription drug coverage and Medicare Cost Plans offering Medicare prescription drug coverage.

Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
