EFFECT OF AGE AND FALL STATUS ON THE SCALING OF THE POSTURAL CONTROL VARIABLES TO A SCALED GAIT INITIATION TASK

Inefficacy of the postural control system can lead to loss of equilibrium and upright stability, and ultimately a fall by older adults. Understanding the control of the center of mass (CoM) with respect to the base of support (BOS) in a progressively challenging environment that encourages individuals to scale postural control variables is of clinical importance. Subsequently, the long-term goal of this work is to optimize evidence-based balance rehabilitation programs for older adults with balance...
