Abstract

Lower limb arthritis is a risk factor for falls, although few studies have used comprehensive balance assessment to determine the degree to which this contributes to falls risk. This study evaluated the falls risk and balance impairment of women with lower limb osteoarthritis (OA) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
