Ringhof, Steffen; Stein, Thorsten; Hellmann, Daniel; Schindler, Hans Jürgen; Potthast, Wolfgang;

Postural control is crucial for most tasks of daily living, delineating postural orientation and balance, with its main goal of fall prevention. Nevertheless, falls are common events, and have been associated with deficits in muscle strength and dynami... View more
