Alterations in gait speed and age do not fully explain the changes in gait mechanics associated with healthy older women (2012)
Journal Article
Alcock, L., Vanicek, N., & O'Brien, T. D. (2013). Alterations in gait speed and age do not fully explain the changes in gait mechanics associated with healthy older women. Gait and Posture, 37(4), 586-592. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gaitpost.2012.09.023

Older adults exhibit modified gait patterns compared to the young, adopting movement strategies in response to changes in musculoskeletal function. Investigating the functional mobility of older women is particularly important because of their increa...
