Two types of slip-induced falls among community dwelling older adults
Little is known about the landing behavior of the trailing (recovery) foot and ensuing types of falls following a forward slip in walking. The purposes of this study were to 1) determine if community-dwelling older adults ...
Limits of Recovery Against Slip-Induced Falls While Walking
Slip-induced falls in gait often have devastating consequences. The purposes of this study were 1) to select the determinants that can best discriminate the outcomes (recoveries or falls) of an unannounced slip induced in ...
Alteration in community-dwelling older adults' level walking following perturbation training
While perturbation training is promising in reducing fall-risk among older adults, its impact on altering their spontaneous gait pattern has not been investigated. The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent ...
Adaptation and Generalization to Opposing Perturbations in Walking
(Elsevier Inc., 2013-08)
Little is known on how the CNS would select its movement options when a person faces a novel or recurring perturbation of two opposing types (slip or trip) while walking. The purposes of this study were (1) to determine ...
Automatic recognition of falls in gait-slip training: Harness load cell based criteria
Over-head-harness systems, equipped with load cell sensors, are essential to the participants' safety and to the outcome assessment in perturbation training. The purpose of this study was to first develop an automatic ...
Generalization of Motor Adaptation to Repeated-Slip Perturbation Across Tasks
Similar adaptations improve both proactive and reactive control of center-of-mass (COM) stability and limb support against gravity during different daily tasks (e.g., sitto-stand and walking) as a consequence of perturbation ...
