This research utilized publicly available secondary data, ...

Validation of an accelerometer for measurement of activity in frail older people.

Specific gait parameters are associated with falls and injury. It is important to identify walking episodes in order to determine the associated gait parameters. Frail older people have a greater risk of falling due to increased probability of inactivity. Therefore, detection and analysis of their physical activities becomes significant. Furthermore, ascertainment of gait parameters and non-sedentary activities for frail older group is difficult in free living environments - an area which hasn't been explor...

More symmetrical gait after split-belt treadmill walking does not modify dynamic and postural balance in individuals post-stroke.

Spontaneous gait is often asymmetrical in individuals post-stroke, despite their ability to walk more symmetrically on demand. Given the sensorimotor deficits in the paretic limb, this asymmetrical gait may facilitate balance maintenance. We used a split-belt walking protocol to alter gait asymmetry and determine the effects on dynamic and postural balance. Twenty individuals post-stroke walked on a split-belt treadmill. In two separate periods, the effects of walking with the non-paretic leg, and then the ...

Walking and balance in children and adolescents with lower-limb amputation: A review of literature.

Children with lower limb loss face gait and balance limitations. Prosthetic rehabilitation is thus aimed at improving functional capacity and mobility throughout the developmental phases of the child amputee.
