Williams, Kathleen; Bird, Michael
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v34 n3 p241-55 1992
Examined constraints that might result in locomotion declines in older adults. Videotaped movements of healthy, active females between 20 and 80 years. Those over 60 walked at significantly slower speeds, particularly climbing stairs and used smaller range of speeds than younger individuals. Despite slowing, pattern of coordination between limbs remained essentially same across ages tested. (Author/NB)
