Journal Article
Alcock, L., O'Brien, T. D., & Vanicek, N. (2015). Age-related changes in physical functioning : correlates between objective and self-reported outcomes. Physiotherapy, 101(2), 204-213. doi:10.1016/j.physio.2014.09.001

Objectives To quantify the variance attributable to age and estimate annual decline in physical function and self-reported health using a battery of outcome measures in healthy older females. To determine whether self-reported functional losses are s... Read More

Biomechanical demands differentiate transitioning vs. continuous stair ascent gait in older women (2013)
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). doi:10.1016/j.clinbiomech.2013.10.007. ISSN 0268-0033

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... Read More
