Abstract

This brief commentary is focused on the experimental procedures employed in the evaluation of both cognitive and balance impairments of aging patients. This is an important ergonomic issue that might be used for research purposes. In fact, the corrected assessment of impairments during aging may favor the development of new integrated ergonomic strategies to ameliorate ADL together with the reduction of environmental risks.
