Journal Article
Dostanpor, A., Dobson, C. A., & Vanicek, N. (2018). Relationships between walking speed, T-score and age with gait parameters in older post-menopausal women with low bone mineral density. Gait and Posture, 64, (230-237). doi:10.1016/j.gaitpost.2018.05.005. ISSN 0966-6362

Background: The gait patterns of women with low bone mineral density (BMD) or osteoporosis have not been thoroughly explored, and when examined, often studied in relation to falls and kyphosis. Research question: The aim of this study was to investig... Read More

Do predictive relationships exist between postural control and falls efficacy in unilateral transtibial prosthesis users? (2018)
Journal Article
Barnett, C. T., Vanicek, N., & Rusaw, D. F. (2018). Do predictive relationships exist between postural control and falls efficacy in unilateral transtibial prosthesis users?. Archives of physical medicine and rehabilitation, 99(11), 2271-2278. doi:10.1016/j.apmr.2018.05.016

Objective: To assess whether variables from a postural control test relate to and predict falls efficacy in prosthesis users. Design: Twelve-month within and between subjects repeated measures design. Participants performed the Limits of Stability... Read More

A personalised exercise programme for individuals with lower limb amputation reduces falls and improves gait biomechanics: A block randomised controlled trial (2018)
Journal Article
Schafer, Z. A., Perry, J. L., & Vanicek, N. (2018). A personalised exercise programme for individuals with lower limb amputation reduces falls and improves gait biomechanics: A block randomised controlled trial. Gait and Posture, 63, 282-289. doi:10.1016/j.gaitpost.2018.04.030

Background: Lower limb amputees (LLAs) are at increased risk of falling due to the inherent asymmetry resulting from their limb loss, muscle weakness and other neuro-musculoskeletal limitations. Research question: The aim of this study was to evaluat... Read More
