Abstract

This study aimed to report contemporary data on the daily frequency of the sit-to-stand (STS) movement in a healthy, independently living, adult population. As a key determinant of functional independence, which has a high mechanical load, the STS movement is a common feature of rehabilitation. Knowledge of STS frequency during daily activities could inform rehabilitation goals and content, but has rarely been examined. To date, only McLeod et al. (1975) have investigated this, reporting an average of 92 daily STS transitions in healthy young participants.
