      Background: Time commitments, limited access, or unwillingness to join a group are some of the many reasons for low adherence to structured exercise in older adults. A promising alternative approach is integrating exercise ...
    • Concurrent validity and reliability of the Community Balance and Mobility Scale in young-older adults. 

      Weber, Michaela; Van Ancum, Jeanine M.; Bergquist, Ronny; Taraldsen, Kristin; Gordt, Katharina; Mikolaizak, A. Stefanie; Nerz, Corinna; Pijnappels, Mirjam; Jonkman, Nini H.; Maier, Andrea B.; Helbostad, Jorunn L.; Vereijken, Beatrix; Becker, Clemens; Schwenk, Michael (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background With the growing number of young-older adults (baby-boomers), there is an increasing demand for assessment tools specific for this population, which are able to detect subtle balance and mobility deficits. ...
    • Creating and Validating a Shortened Version of the Community Balance and Mobility Scale for Application in People Who Are 61 to 70 Years of Age 

      Gordt, Katharina; Mikolaizak, A. Stefanie; Taraldsen, Kristin; Bergquist, Ronny; Van Ancum, Jeanine M.; Nerz, Corinna; Pijnappels, Mirjam; Maier, Andrea B.; Helbostad, Jorunn L.; Vereijken, Egberta; Becker, Clemens; Schwenk, Michael (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Background The Community Balance and Mobility Scale (CBM) has been shown to be reliable and valid for detecting subtle balance and mobility deficits in people who are 61 to 70 years of age. However, item redundancy and ...
    • The FARSEEING real-world fall repository: a large-scale collaborative database to collect and share sensor signals from real-world falls 

      Klenk, Jochen; Schwickert, Lars; Palmerini, Luca; Mellone, Sabato; Bourke, Alan; Ihlen, Espen Alexander F.; Kerse, Ngaire; Hauer, Klaus; Pijnappels, Mirjam; Synofzik, Matthis; Srulijes, Karin; Maetzler, Walter; Helbostad, Jorunn L.; Zijlstra, Wiebren; Aminian, Kamiar; Todd, Christopher; Chiari, Lorenzo; Becker, Clemens (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      Background Real-world fall events objectively measured by body-worn sensors can improve the understanding of fall events in older people. However, these events are rare and hence challenging to capture. Therefore, the ...
    • Inertial sensor based analysis of lie-to-stand transfers in younger and older adults 

      Schwickert, Lars; Boos, Ronald; Klenk, Jochen; Bourke, Alan; Becker, Clemens; Zijlstra, Wiebren (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
