Abstract

Negotiating stairs is one of the most difficult activities of daily living faced by older adults. Many researchers have studied the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal demands of stair ascent but there is little research on the biomechanics of stair descent. The purpose of this study was to investigate the biomechanics of stair descent in older adults.
