Journal Article
Alcock, L., O'Brien, T. D., & Vanicek, N. (2014). Biomechanical demands differentiate transitioning vs. continuous stair ascent gait in older women. Clinical biomechanics, 29(1), 111-118. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.clinbiomech.2013.10.007

Background Stair ascent mechanics change with age, but little is known about the differing functional demands of transitioning and continuous ascent. Work investigating the risky transition from gait to ascent is sparse, and the strategies that older...
