Gait disorder is a serious problem in elderly subjects. It is characterized by the fact that dual-tasking destabilizes gait (Springer et al., ). The attentional demands of gait are tested using dual-task methodologies, which can be applied to identify gait disorders and fall risks (Yogev-Seligmann et al., ).

"Gait Analysis: Normal and Pathological Function is a comprehensive text for basic gait analysis, systematically covering the fundamental components of Gait Disorders book and pathological gait.
The clinical focus of this text makes it a useful resource for clinicians and students of all levels."Cited by: Gait patterns such as parkinsonian gait, disequilibrium, high-level gait disorders, and the neural control of gait are discussed. This may help in the evaluation of individuals with abnormalities of gait and balance and allow to clinically localize the pathological process in the neuraxis or establish a non-neurological etiology.
Gait disorders predict poor quality of life and increased morbidity and mortality. In assessing fall risk the presence of a prior fall in the last 6 to 12 months is the best predictor. Falls are the result of many causes and the most common cause for injury related hospital admissions.
Gait classification is relatively straightforward when the peripheral nervous system or the musculo-skeletal changes play a major role in the clinical picture.
When abnormal gait is the result of isolated spinal cord, cortico-spinal tract, cerebellum or extra-pyramidal system dysfunction, it is still relatively easy to by: With chapters by many of the foremost international authorities on aging, neurology, physical therapy, and rehabilitation, this reference provides an up-to-date review of approaches to gait disorders and falls.

Introduction. Gait and balance disorders represent a major health problem in the elderly population .The term higher-level gait disorders (HLGD) has been proposed when no specific disease can be identified [2, 3].HLGD patients show slow gait with shorter strides, poor balance with falls, and gait initiation problems, including freezing of gait [4, 5].Cited by: Human gait depends on a complex interplay of major parts of the nervous, musculoskeletal and cardiorespiratory systems.
The individual gait pattern is influenced by age, personality, mood and sociocultural factors. The preferred walking speed in older adults is a sensitive marker of general health and survival.
Safe walking requires intact cognition and Cited by: The aim of the study is twofold: (1) to investigate the suitability of stateof-the-art GRF parameterization techniques (representations) for the discrimination of.
