were digitally filtered with a fourth-order zero-lag Butterworth filter with a cutoff at 6 Hz. For this study, fundamental gait parameters included gait speed, stride length, stride width, double support time, and ROM during walking for lower extremity joints (hip, knee, and ankle) in the sagittal

We also expected that the participants would exhibit greater swing hip abduction; stride width; stride length; minimum toe clearance; and swing and stance ankle, hip, and knee flexion as a

This study examined transfer effects of fall training on fear of falling (Falls Efficacy Scale—International [FES–I]), balance performance, and spatiotemporal gait characteristics in older adults. Eighteen community-dwelling older adults (ages 65–85) were randomly assigned to an intervention or control group. The intervention group completed 12 training sessions (60 min, 6 weeks). During pre- and posttesting, we measured FES–I, balance performance (double limb, closed eyes; single limb, open eyes; double limb, open eyes with motor-interfered task), and gait parameters (e.g., velocity; cadence; stride time, stride width, and stride length; variability of stride time and stride length) under single- and motor-interfered tasks. Dual tasks were applied to appraise improvements of cognitive processing during balance and gait. FES–I (p = .33) and postural sway did not significantly change (0.36 < p < .79). Trends toward significant interaction effects were found for step width during normal walking and stride length variability during the motor dual task (p = .05, ηp 2 = .22). Fall training did not sufficiently improve fear of falling, balance, or gait performance under single- or dual-task conditions in healthy older adults.

double support times decreased ( p  < .05) in the CB group. Time × Group interaction was observed for gait speed, F (1, 23) = 1.9, p  = .019, r  = .27, and stride time, F (1, 23) = 1.61, p  = .035, r  = .26, with small effect size, and cadence, F (1, 23) = 3.4, p  = .049, r  = .36, stride width

/contributing to the chosen strategy, were also evaluated: step rate, step length, stride width, peak external knee adduction moment (EKAM), knee adduction angular impulse, and peak lateral trunk flexion (objective 3). External knee adduction moments (EKAM) were calculated from raw marker and force data, then low
