, Tamura, Minato, & Kanaya, 2015 ). In a gait analysis using a tri-axial accelerometer attached to the lumbar region, the disturbance of the trunk during walking was estimated by the root mean square (RMS; Sekine et al., 2013 ), and the gait regularity and symmetry were estimated by the autocorrelation

The objective of this study was to measure gait abnormalities in elderly fallers with the Locometrix™ gait-analysis system. This accelerometric device provided the following gait variables: walking speed and stride frequency, length, symmetry, and regularity. The variables were analyzed over a 20-s period of stable walking on a flat track of 40 m. Participants were 20 elderly patients hospitalized for falls (mean age 80.8 ± 5.0 years) and 33 older adults living at home (mean age 77.2 ± 6.5 years). All gait variables were found to be significantly lower in the faller group (p < .05). The lower gait speed, stride length, and stride frequency were previously recognized as nonrelevant in predicting the risk of falling, whereas lower stride symmetry was related to an underlying pathology and lower stride regularity was correlated to the risk of falls. The Locometrix appears to be well suited to measure gait regularity in routine practice.

the race, and as a result of increases in self-reported MSK pain, gait regularity would decrease, and peak CoM acceleration, RMS, and AP and ML RMS ratio values would all increase. We then expected that at 7 days following the race, the self-reported MSK pain and gait measures would be similar to the
