Abstract

Age-related changes in both postural control and locomotion were investigated. Postural control was evaluated by magnitude of body sway for 131 healthy persons aged 21 to 84 years. Locomotion was evaluated by walking velocity for 217 healthy persons aged 21 to 88 years. Analysis showed that both abilities deteriorated for older persons and particularly age-related changes were more remarkable in locomotion.
