    • Predicting Advanced Balance Ability and Mobility with an Instrumented Timed Up and Go Test 

      Bergquist, Ronny; Nerz, Corinna; Taraldsen, Kristin; Mellone, Sabato; Ihlen, Espen Alexander F.; Vereijken, Beatrix; Helbostad, Jorunn L.; Becker, Clemens; Mikolaizak, A. Stefanie (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Extensive test batteries are often needed to obtain a comprehensive picture of a person’s functional status. Many test batteries are not suitable for active and healthy adults due to ceiling effects, or require a lot of ...
    • Quantification of outdoor mobility by use of accelerometer-measured physical behaviour. 

      Taraldsen, Kristin; Granat, Malcolm H.; Helbostad, Jorunn L. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Hip fractures in older persons are associated with both low levels of daily physical activity and loss of outdoor mobility. The aim was to investigate if accelerometer-based measures of physical behaviour can be used to ...
    • Short and long-term clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a late-phase community-based balance and gait exercise program following hip fracture. The EVA-HIP randomised controlled trial
