Description/Abstract

Background: The ability to perform a chair rise is an
important physical function and is a precursor for many
mobility functions. Biomechanically, rising from a chair
is observed to be a highly demanding task for older
adults. Hence, the relationship between knee extensor
strength and functional moments produced during
chair rise was investigated in a large sample of older
adults
