To clarify the relationship between the maximal strength of the lower limb muscles and walking ability in elderly women. Muscle strength reductions after 60 were remarkable in all muscle groups. During the aging process, normal and maximal walking speeds tended to decrease after 70, and were significantly reduced by 80 compared with those speeds during the 40s.
