daily activities such as rising from a chair, stair climbing, etc., and therefore have an impact on the overall functional mobility. The small number of participants included in this study limits the generalization of our results. Indeed, a larger sample size could have allowed us to compare the effect

the dance intervention to more advanced stages. These results may indicate a quick and safe initial strategy to stabilize balance, allowing other motor issues to be worked on such as gait, functional mobility, and speed, which is very important for people with PD. However, high-level multicenter RCTs

exceeds the minimally clinically important difference of 0.05 m/s ( Perera et al., 2006 ). Improvements in gait speed are associated with a decreased risk of mortality and improved functional mobility ( Hardy, Perera, Roumani, Chandler, & Studenski, 2007 ). This is a promising finding, as it demonstrates

factors such as strength, coordination, and balance also contribute to safe functional mobility. These variables were not collected, but each decline with age. Future studies need to consider multiple factors when evaluating the unique contribution of flexibility on functional performance. Finally, a lack

musculoskeletal injury during data collection. Participants’ level of ambulation was assessed using the Functional Mobility Scale ( Graham, Harvey, Rodda, Nattrass, & Pirpiris, 2004 ). The scale required participants to attempt to walk 5, 50, or 500 m, while ratings of 1–6 were recorded according to if, and how

more proximal muscles working at the trunk and hip and functional mobility of older adults deserves further investigation. 15 Rate of torque development is another muscle performance measure that quantifies the rapid application of strength and is related to speed of movement. Similar to strength, rate

functional mobility following TKA ( Moffet et al., 2004 ; Parent & Moffet, 2002 ; Parent & Moffet, 2003 ). The 6MW test has been demonstrated to have excellent test-retest reliability, with intraclass correlation coefficients from 0.95–0.97, and a low coefficient of variation (10.4%; Montgomery & Gardner

Kinesthesia, the sense of body movement, is widely acknowledged to play an important role in functional mobility. Both proprioceptive receptors (eg, muscle spindles) and cutaneous receptors (eg, Ruffini corpuscles) can provide sensory feedback related to body segment position or velocity, thus

the postmenopausal population ( Lomas-Vega, Hita-Contreras, Mendoza, & Martínez-Amat, 2012 ). A higher score in the FES-I correlates with a greater fear of falling. Dynamic Balance The Timed Up and Go (TUG) test is a simple, valid, and reliable method to assess functional mobility and dynamic balance
