Rate of force development (RFD) is influential, and possibly more influential than other muscular performance parameters, for mobility in older adults. However, only a few studies have investigated this matter, and this has not been examined for the plantar flexors (PFs). The purpose of this study was to examine the contribution of PF RFD and other common tests of muscular performance to Up-and-Go (UG) performance and walking speed (WS) in older adults.

The aim of this study was to explore the effects of age and sex on the rate of force development scaling factor (RFD-SF) and maximum performance (i.e., maximum grip force [GFMax] and maximum rate of ...
This study contrasted the stochastic force component between young and older adults, who performed pursuit tracking/compensatory tracking by exerting in-phase/antiphase forces to match a sinusoidal ta...
This study aims toward an investigation and comparison of the digital force control and the brain activities of older adults and young groups during digital pressing tasks. A total of 15 young and 15 ...
More than 60% of the new cancer diagnoses are currently made in older adults, a highly heterogeneous population. Reliable and time-saving tools to define older adults' prognosis are needed to inform t...
This study compares estimates and determinants of within-individual changes in mobility across surveys of older US adults.
The objective of this study is to determine the central neural control of mobility in older adults by acquiring data with multiple modalities of neuroimaging (EEG, fNIRS, MRI) and associat...
The loss of mobility during aging impacts independence and leads to further disability, morbidity, and reduced life expectancy. The study objective was to examine the feasibility and safet...
This study evaluates the program outcomes of the Let's Go program. The standardized community mobility program employs multi-modal group and individual sessions to facilitate wellness in o...
There is an urgent need for interventions to reduce mobility limitations that affect over 15 million older adults and contribute to falls, disability, hospitalization and death. This train...
Rapid force production declines as a consequence of ageing. Given the functional relevance of rapid force production, exercise interventions in older adults should aim at improving the cap...
Community centers for older adults and providers of resources for the community. In addition to providing services and activities for older adults that reflect the community's diversity, they link participants with resources offered by other agencies.
Older adults or aged individuals who are lacking in general strength and are unusually susceptible to disease or to other infirmity.
Nutritional physiology of adults aged 65 years of age and older.
Degenerative changes in the RETINA usually of older adults which results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the MACULA LUTEA) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in dry and wet forms.
The rotational force about an axis that is equal to the product of a force times the distance from the axis where the force is applied.
