The study's aim was to document ageing effects on gait control by analysing the distributions of both left and right step timing and minimum foot-ground clearance (MFC) in older men (mean 71.1 years) and gender-matched controls (mean 26.3 years). Step durations and MFC were obtained from continuously sampled 3D markers during preferred-speed treadmill walking (single task) for 15 min and a dual-task condition in which participants walked at the same speed and also responded to the same 90 quasi… CONTINUE READING
