File Name: mechanisms of limb collapse following a slip among young and older adults .zip
When year-old Doris fell getting out of the bathtub late on a Tuesday in the apartment she shared with her year-old husband of 65 years, the ambulance took her to the hospital. As suspected, she had broken her right hip, which was surgically corrected Wednesday morning.
Dr Mak and Dr Yang provided data analysis. Margaret K. Little is known about why these patients fail to perform this transfer activity. This study aimed to determine the role of dynamic stability and limb support in governing successful STS performance in patients with PD and to determine the limits of recovery for discriminating between successful and failed STS trials. Kinematic data on 18 successful trials and 14 failed trials when the patients fell backward were collected with a motion analysis system. Limb support was characterized by the hip height Height hip. It was in the vertical direction that the fallers had significantly reduced peak COM velocity Velocity COM,vertical and lower corresponding Height hip than the risers.
Dewitt, Jonathan Moore, Michael J. Despite sufficient evidence to suggest that lower-limb—related factors may contribute to fall risk in older adults, lower-limb and footwear influences on fall risk have not been systematically summarized for readers and clinicians. The purpose of this study was to systematically review and synethesize the literature related to lower-limb, foot, and footwear factors that may increase the risk of falling among community-dwelling older adults. To describe the trajectory toward increasing risk of falls, we examined those articles that linked age-related changes in the lower limb or footwear to prospective falls or linked them to evidenced-based fall risk factors, such as gait and balance impairment. This systematic review consisted of 81 articles that met the review criteria, and the results reflect a narrative review of the appraised literature for eight pathways of lower-limb—related influences on fall risk in older adults. Six of the eight pathways support a direct link to fall risk.
JOHN J. A more recent article on hip pain in adults is available. Patient information: See related handout on hip pain , written by the authors of this article. See CME Quiz questions. Hip pain is a common and disabling condition that affects patients of all ages.
Falls frequently cause injury-related hospitalization or death among older adults. This article reviews a new conceptual framework on dynamic stability and weight support in reducing the risk for falls resulting from a forward slip, based on the principles of motor control and learning, in the context of adaptation and longer-term retention induced by repeated-slip training. Although an unexpected slip is severely destabilizing, a recovery step often is adequate for regaining stability, regardless of age.
Handbook of Human Motion pp Cite as. The cumulative effect of falls on older adults and on the healthcare system is immense; the results are debilitating injuries, loss of independence, and transfer to a healthcare institution, or even death. Therefore, it is pressing to develop fall prevention interventions to prevent falls from happening.
When year-old Doris fell getting out of the bathtub late on a Tuesday in the apartment she shared with her year-old husband of 65 years, the ambulance took her to the hospital. As suspected, she had broken her right hip, which was surgically corrected Wednesday morning. Doris was up from bed Thursday and scheduled to transfer to a rehabilitation center that afternoon—but the hospital learned no bed would be available until Friday.
