Hip fractures occur approximately in 300K individuals aged 65+ annually post-fall
53.3% will sustain another fall; Mortality rate > 25%
The sit-to-stand (STS) task is impacted by hip fractures.
vGRF asymmetry with STS post-hip fracture (Houck et al.)
Hip fracture side < non-fractured side
Asymmetry not fully explained by LE strength in hip fracture nor CVA
