Strength Deficit of Knee Extensor Muscles of Individuals with Down Syndrome from Childhood to Adolescence.
Cioni, M.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n2 p166-74 Sep 1994
The isokinetic strength of the knee extensor muscles of both limbs was evaluated in 25 children and adolescents with Down's syndrome. The Down's syndrome subjects were significantly weaker than control groups with average intelligence and with non-Down's syndrome mental retardation. Results suggested a dysfunction of the neuromuscular system, possibly as an expression of premature aging. (Author/DB)
