Key joint kinematic characteristics of the gait of fallers identified by principal component analysis.

Abstract

It has been reported that fallers have a higher risk of subsequent falls than non-fallers. Therefore, if the differences between the movements of recent fallers and non-fallers can be identified, such could be regarded as the basis of the high risk of falling of the former. The objective of the present study was the identification of the key joint kinematic… (More)
