Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Older and younger adults have different reaching-to-lifting movement performances under unexpected conditions. Also, older adults could develop different strategies to adapt to unpredictable conditions. The finding could help occupational therapists to design training sessions for clients to improve upper-extremity function.
