Objectives Ground reaction force (GRF) during sit-to-stand motion is associated with lower extremity strength and balance function. The relationship between GRF and experience of falls has been reported; however, there are no reports on whether GRF can predict the incidence of future falls. We aimed to evaluate the ability of GRF to predict falls and compare GRF with existing predictors. Methods This prospective observational cohort study enrolled 456 community-dwelling older adults living in Itabashi ward who participated in health check …
