  1. Research

    Shedding light on walking in the dark: the effects of reduced lighting on the gait of older adults with a higher-level gait disorder and controls

    To study the effects of reduced lighting on the gait of older adults with a high level gait disorder (HLGD) and to compare their response to that of healthy elderly controls.

  2. Research

    Stride-to-stride variability while backward counting among healthy young adults

    Little information exists about the involvement of attention in the control of gait rhythmicity. Variability of both stride time and stride length is closely related to the control of the rhythmic stepping mec...

  3. Research

    Fractional Langevin model of gait variability

    The stride interval in healthy human gait fluctuates from step to step in a random manner and scaling of the interstride interval time series motivated previous investigators to conclude that this time series ...

    Effect of gait speed on gait rhythmicity in Parkinson's disease: variability of stride time and swing time respond differently

    The ability to maintain a steady gait rhythm is impaired in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). This aspect of locomotor dyscontrol, which likely reflects impaired automaticity in PD, can be quantified by ...

  5. Methodology

    Managing variability in the summary and comparison of gait data

    Variability in quantitative gait data arises from many potential sources, including natural temporal dynamics of neuromotor control, pathologies of the neurological or musculoskeletal systems, the effects of a...

  6. Research

    Too much or too little step width variability is associated with a fall history in older persons who walk at or near normal gait speed

    Decreased gait speed and increased stride time, stride length, double support time, and stance time variability have consistently been associated with falling whereas step width variability has not been strong...

    Gait dynamics in mouse models of Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease

    Gait is impaired in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and Huntington's disease (HD), but gait dynamics in mouse models of PD and HD have not been described. Here we quantified temporal and spatial indices...

    Gait variability: methods, modeling and meaning

    The study of gait variability, the stride-to-stride fluctuations in walking, offers a complementary way of quantifying locomotion and its changes with aging and disease as well as a means of monitoring the eff...
