Abstract


Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine a safe and feasible test setting to evaluate the automaticity of gait in healthy elderly. Methods: Seven healthy elderly participated and three different randomly ordered gait modes, with and without the performance of an auditory Stroop test, were assessed. Conclusion: This study revealed that the Gait Real- Time Analysis Interactive Lab is a safe and feasible test setting to determine the automaticity of gait. In addition, the present research has implications with regard to a feasible test setting to evaluate the automaticity of gait in people with a compromised mobility function.
