Method: A total of 63 self-reliant elderly persons participated in this observational and cross-sectional study.
They were characterized by the anthropometric measures of mass, height and body mass index.
Dorsiflexor muscle strength performance (DF-MS) and rate of force development were quantified.
Finally, the elderly persons were asked to walk comfortably around a 40 meter elliptical circuit, using determined SL and maximum foot clearance (MaxFC) and minimum foot clearance (MFC) trajectory parameters.
The SL determinants were evaluated by calculating the coefficient of determination (r2) considering a level of significance of p≤0.05.
Results: The anthropometric variables demonstrated significant corre...
