Abstract: This study examined the validity of the assumption of bilateral lower extremity joint moment symmetry during the sit-to-stand motion for a group of young (n = 7) and a group of elderly (n = 7) female subjects. Two force plates and a motion analysis system were used to determine peak joint moments at the ankles, knees, and hips following liftoff from a chair. Statistically, bilateral asymmetries in peak joint moments were found at the knee joint in the young group [a right to left difference of 0.43% BW x BH (b…
