Biomch-l;
Regarding slower walking by elders -- no citations, just observations:
1. Increased joint stiffness/decreased joint ROM; increased musculotendinous
stiffness.
2. Related to the above: joint/muscle pathology (e.g., arthritis--clinical or sub-
clinical).
3. Wisdom. Taking time to smell the roses.
