Materials and Methods Subjects Forty-one healthy, young adults, 23 females (mean ± 1 SD : age 25 ± 9 years, mass

Discussion This study investigated activity levels of anterior, middle, and posterior segments of the GMed during common rehabilitation exercises in healthy young adults. These results indicate that

movement performance in healthy young adults (HYAs). Methods were chosen keeping in mind previous results for repetitive finger movements in persons with PD, such that the results of this study will aid in the refinement of the use of music to facilitate movement in persons with PD. Similar to the

A third purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in percentage of strides without a local minimum of toe height across young adults, older fallers and nonfallers, and stroke survivors to

slow speeds are also typical in older adults. As old and young adults walk in different velocity and gait parameters changes with walking velocity, a dilemma arises with respect to the proper way to compare data collected at different walking velocities. The changes in gait characteristics in older

young adults. 31 Lower PA across the life span and lower moderate to vigorous PA (MVPA) in older age 32 may contribute to larger declines in muscle strength or greater muscle fatigability in females compared with males. 18 In addition to lower PA levels, older females may not realize the same muscle
