PURPOSE To investigate the reliability of a 3D-accelerometry based gait analysis, and its correlates with clinical status and fall-risk. METHODS Forty elderly subjects presenting with increased fall-risk (OFR), 41 elderly controls (OC) and 40 young controls (aged 80.6±5.4, 79.1±4.9 and 21.6±1.4 years respectively) underwent three gait evaluations (two assessors in random order) each containing two walks of 18 m with a DynaPort MiniMod accelerometer on the pelvis. Intra- and inter-observer… CONTINUE READING
