Table 4 Mean values and standard deviations for age, mobility and other demographic factors comparing three TUG categories: < 10 seconds, 10 – 13.99 sec. and 14 or > sec.

From: The history of falls and the association of the timed up and go test to falls and near-falls in older adults with hip osteoarthritis
