BACKGROUND The review of methodological problems (confounding factors) of gait analysis in intervention studies with seniors is underrepresented. AIM This study focusses on two common problems of gait analysis under single-task (ST) and dual-task (DT) conditions (visual verbal Stroop test): (1) reproducibility of walking variables and (2) the effects of gait velocity, gender and age on peak plantar pressure to identify confounding effects on relevant outcome parameters. METHODS The… CONTINUE READING
