The effects of dual-tasking on temporal gait adaptation and de-adaptation to the split-belt treadmill in older adults.

Summary of "The effects of dual-tasking on temporal gait adaptation and de-adaptation to the split-belt treadmill in older adults."

It has been well established that with aging, walking becomes more challenging when dividing attention towards other tasks (i.e. dual-tasks) and when adapting walking to environmental demands. Although these gait-related features are believed to contribute to an increased risk of falling in older adults, little is known about the interplay between dual-tasking and gait adaptation.

Understanding gait adaptation is essential for rehabilitation, and visual feedback can be used during gait rehabilitation to develop effective gait training. We have previously shown that subjects can...

Adaptive changes in foot placement for split-belt treadmill walking in individuals with stroke.

Adaptation to split-belt treadmill walking differs between individual stroke survivors. Many discussions only address spatiotemporal parameters that are related to movement, and the changes in interli...

Cognitive control processes associated with successful gait performance in dual-task walking in healthy young adults.

Growing evidence suggests that the reliance on cognitive control processes during normal walking increases as the locomotor task gets more complex and challenging. The aims of the present study were t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The adjustment of the eye to variations in the intensity of light. Light adaptation is the adjustment of the eye when the light threshold is increased; DARK ADAPTATION when the light is greatly reduced. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

The caring for individuals in institutions and their adaptation to routines characteristic of the institutional environment, and/or their loss of adaptation to life outside the institution.

Changes in biological features that help an organism cope with its ENVIRONMENT. These changes include physiological (ADAPTATION, PHYSIOLOGICAL), phenotypic and genetic changes.

Adjustment of the eyes under conditions of low light. The sensitivity of the eye to light is increased during dark adaptation.

The degree of approximation or fit of filling material or dental prosthetic to the tooth surface. A close marginal adaptation and seal at the interface is important for successful dental restorations.
