Purpose Older adults with hyperkyphosis might have a high risk of falls since their whole body center of mass may shift to the boundary of the base of support. Body composition changes, such as low bone mineral content (BMC), decreased muscle mass, high body mass index (BMI), and increased fat mass are common in older adults with hyperkyphosis. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between body composition and balance performance using a biomechanical analysis in older adults with hyperkyphosis. Methods …
