Dual task-related gait changes in patients with mild cognitive impairment.
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) entails a high risk of developing Alzheimer's dementia. In MCI patients gait impairment, which increases the risk of falls and institutionalization, is an early motorExpand

Multiple gait patterns within the same Winters class in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy.
BACKGROUND Previous literature hypothesized that Winters type I are mainly characterized by a hypo-activation of dorsiflexors and type II by hyperactivation of plantarflexors around initial contact.Expand

Normative EMG patterns of ankle muscle co-contractions in school-age children during gait.
PURPOSE The study was designed to assess the co-contractions of tibialis anterior (TA) and gastrocnemius lateralis (GL) in healthy school-age children during gait at self-selected speed and cadence,Expand

Gait attentional load at different walking speeds.
Gait is an attention-demanding task even in healthy young adults. However, scant evidence exists about the attentional load required at various walking speeds. The aim of this study was toExpand
