Abstract

A reliable and valid observational gait assessment intended to guide clinical intervention for gait deficits in older adults has not been proposed. A quick gait classification method which tailors clinical management for different patterns of gait dysfunction may be useful for clinicians with limited access to apply computer-assisted gait analyses.
