Age-related self-overestimation of step-over ability in healthy older adults and its relationship to fall risk

Thus, incorrect estimation (overestimation) of ability to step over an obstacle could result in severe accident such as falls in older adults. We investigated whether older adults tended to overestimate step-over...
