The study found that when insects run at high speeds and on slippery surfaces their gait shifts from a static to a dynamic stabilization technique.
The characteristic Parkinsonian gait pattern has several hypokinetic features including reduced stride length, velocity and step height resulting in short shuffling steps, associated with a flexed posture and poor arm swing (Peppe, Chiavalon, Pasqualetti, Crovato, & Caltagirone, 2007).
The loss of control during gait could lead to increased risk of fall after stroke.
Manipulation in task constraints has previously been studied in gait coordination patterns or spatiotemporal gait parameters [34].
Investigators found that higher gait costs in the dual gait test involving either counting backward by ones or naming animals were associated with a significantly increased risk of progression to dementia (JAMA Neurol.
Sensorimotor impairments including muscle weakness, impaired selective motor control, abnormal movement synergies, spasticity, and proprioceptive deficits lead to various gait disturbances in patients with hemiplegia after stroke.
To test the fast walking gait we built a six-legged robot.
Frailty, characterized by slowed gait, weak grip, and decreased physical activity and energy, resembles and often co-occurs with late-life depression, giving rise to the concept of a "depressed-frail" phenotype at potentially greater risk of imminent death, he added.

Our research group has noted that many gait alterations previously identified in patients with PAD are similar to the gait changes documented in older adult subjects.
Walking with eyes closed also revealed parallel changes in the walking patterns PPV patients: walking speed was reduced with a decrease in cadence and stride length and an increase in gate cycle parameters (stride time) and gait variability.
