Partial weight bearing is an integral part of the recovery process for a variety of clinical conditions. The authors studied 15 healthy young women (age 20-30) and 15 healthy older women (age > 65) in partial weight bearing after training with feedback. The results indicate that older patients (particularly those with sensory deficits) may require more training than young patients to learn partial weight bearing despite being able to perform it with feedback during the training period.
