The purpose of this study was to determine the reference values of the velocity of execution of the five Sit-to-Stand in older adults through a systematic review of the literature.Three databases were reviewed: Medline (PubMed), Scopus and Web of Science, with the deadline of March 2021.The search terms were: «sit to stand» OR «stand to sit» OR «chair rise» OR «chair rising» AND «kinematic» OR «velocity». The experimental studies were evaluated using the Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Assessment (QUADAS) scale by independent reviewers. A total of seven studies were included. The velocity of execution in older adults (n=85) that presented neurological health conditions was between 0.33 m/s and 0.38 m/s. In the healthy (n=246) ones it was between 0.27 m/s and 0.94 m/s. Between 60 to 70 years (n=157) it was from 0.31 m/s and 1.59 m/s, and from 70 to 80 years (n=225) it was from 0.27 m/s and 1.04 m/s.The execution velocity of five Sit-to-Stand in older adults ranges from a minimum of 0.27 m/s to a maximum of 1.59 m/s ffor the complete cycle of standing up and sitting down.These antecedents may be useful to predict or detect functional alterations and disability.
