  author={황수진 and 이충휘 and 박소연},
This study was designed to examine, applying Rasch analysis based on item response theory, the questionnaires of the Activities-Specific Balance Confidence (ABC) scale for the elderly. The subjects were 99 institutional older adults and clients of social welfare facilities. The subjects (17 men, 72 women) ranged in age from 65 to 94 years (mean age 76.5 yrs). The Winsteps software was used to assess whether the ABC scale fits the Rasch model, to estimate the score and to refine the rating scale… 
Fear of falling and balance ability in older men: the priest study.
A stepwise-regression model demonstrated that balance ability, mood, assistive-device use, and physical activity predicted 52% of the variance in balance confidence.
The Impact and Use of Walkers among Older Adults: A Pilot

Four Essential Tremor Cases with Moderately Impaired Gait: How Impaired can Gait be in this Disease?
Background A body of literature is emerging regarding gait/balance impairments observed in essential tremor (ET) patients. Although impairment is generally mild, the full extent of the spectrum
Gait asymmetry, and bilateral coordination of gait during a six-minute walk test in persons with multiple sclerosis
Results show that gait is more asymmetric and less coordinated as the disease progresses, and GA and PCI show somewhat weaker associations with clinical MS status than associations observed between functional and subjective gait assessments and MS status.
