Dear BIOMECHANISTS:

Older adults tend to walk slower. There maybe many explanations. But
there are three most likely sources:

1. weaker muscle strength and could not walk faster
2. afraid of road hazards and prefer to walk slower
3. walk slower so as to reduce effort


Are there other sources? Which one do you think is one? Any published
paper on this topic? Thanks.
