AIM To describe age- and sex-related differences in gait patterns of community-living men and women using 3-D gait analysis. METHODS Subjects (n=2006) aged 40-84 years participated in the National Institute for Longevity Sciences-Longitudinal Study of Aging (NILS-LSA). Spatiotemporal components, including velocity, step length, step frequency, and double support time during a gait cycle, were calculated from 3-D coordinates and vertical force data. Velocity, step length and step frequency… CONTINUE READING
