Abstract  
The importance of identifying functional decline in older adults in order to put in place an intervention program has led to the introduction of many functional screening tests. Some of these tests include One Leg Stance (OLS), Timed Up and Go (TUG), grip strength and Sit to Stand (STS). As a part of this work, we propose a linear-regression-based muscle-power estimation model for older people.
