The impact of aging on explosive force production and on postural reflexes

, : The impact of aging on explosive force production and on postural reflexes. Deutsche Zeitschrift fuer Sportmedizin 56(3): 68-73

The aging neuromuscular system is affected by structural and functional changes which lead to a general slowing down of neuromuscular performance and an increased risk of falling. As a consequence, the process of aging results in reduced ability to develop explosive force, and modulation of reflex pathways on the afferent as well as on the efferent side.
