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
