dc.description.abstract 1 in 3 older adults will experience a fall each year. Falls are the leading cause of accidental death in adults over 65 years, and are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma. Most falls occur during locomotion, and impaired gait and postural control have many implications that affect stability during walking. Dynamic posturography has been shown to be a good measure of postural stability, while measures of gait have been linked to age-related changes as well as discriminating between fallers and non-fallers en_US
