Abstract

Summary.Bohannon (2011) found that the five-repetition sit-to-stand test had limited usefulness for older patients in a home-care setting because most of the patients were not able to perform the test. However, the five-repetition sit-to-stand test can be modified in several ways, if assessment of lower limbs' performance is required by functional testing. Depending on the cohort and on parameters of interest, functional tests and objective biomechanical measures can be used.
