, & Portus, 2012 ). In swimming, some studies looked for the most important performance determinants, but no consensus exists when considering young swimmers. In fact, when analyzing young swimmers’ performance, the growth process should be considered ( Douda, Toubekis, Georgiou, Gourgoulis, & Tokmakidis

swimmers should keep stable along the event. Thus, the constraint-led approach could be particularly meaningful for young swimmers who have not yet stabilized a certain stroke frequency and upper-limb coordination pattern, notably due to changes in strength and body size with age. In fact, changes in

; Jayanthi et al., 2013 ). Estimates currently attribute 45.9% to 54% of injuries sustained in youth sports are described as overuse ( DiFiori et al., 2014 ). Overall, the increased risk for overuse injury is most evident in one study of nearly 1200 young athletes who have a higher degree of specialization

effective in younger individuals who more commonly experience traumatic cartilage injuries as a consequence of greater physical activity exposure and sport participation. Gait biomechanics in healthy, young adults are likely a better representation of individuals who sustain traumatic cartilage injuries but

extremity reaching task in 250 repetitions. Emken and Reinkensmeyer ( 2005 ) found that for walking under novel inertial conditions, healthy, young adults could recover their previous walking kinematic leg patterns in 7.3 ± 2.1 steps. However, we were able to find little published research describing how

 al., 2000 ). “Sensory reweighting” was demonstrated by a decreased entrainment to a visual stimulus ( Hwang et al., 2014 ) when healthy young adults were presented with an increased amplitude of that stimulus. Peterka ( 2002 ) found that, unlike healthy adults, patients with bilateral vestibular loss did

The other aim was to determine whether VTC as derived from a depth sensor can discriminate between older adult fallers and nonfallers. We hypothesized that VTC derived from a
