  • Some Article Citations Regarding Gait Speed and the Elderly

    I have provided you with a list of several citations having to do
    with the elderly and gait speed. Please let me know if these citations
    help you. They are listed below your original message.

    Subject: slower walking among older adults


    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.
