This study examined the effectiveness of using the center of mass (COM)-Ankle inclination angles to identify elderly individuals with gait imbalance. Whole body motions of 12 elderly patients with gait imbalance and 12 healthy elderly controls were captured with an 8-camera motion analysis system. Inclination angles between the line formed between the COM(More)
Instantaneous inclination angles between the whole body center of mass (COM) and center of pressure (COP) during gait were reported to detect gait instability in the elderly [1]. Accurate calculation of the COP requires a single foot placement on each force plate. However, many studies indicated that older adults, especially fallers, walk with a(More)
