Sensorimotor and postural control factors associated with driving safety in a community-dwelling older driver population
BACKGROUND: To establish whether sensorimotor function and balance are associated with on-road driving performance in older adults. METHODS: The performance of 270 community-living adults aged 70–88 years recruited via the electoral roll was measured on a battery of peripheral sensation, strength, flexibility, reaction time, and balance tests and on a standardized measure of on-road driving performance. RESULTS: Forty-seven participants (17.4%) were classified as unsafe based on their...[Show more]
