Rate of Force Development as a Predictor of Mobility in Older Adults.

Summary of "Rate of Force Development as a Predictor of Mobility in Older Adults."

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.
