In a nutshell: Both muscle strength and muscle power have been related to falls in older adults, and this study aimed to identify which is more important in preventing slip-related falls. Younger adults were chosen to participate in the study. Findings suggested that power could be more closely related to a slip fall. The findings could be used to provide guidance to identify individuals at increased risk of falling and design effective prevention training paradigms aimed at maximising muscle power among older adults and those with disabilities.
