Coupling a non invasive brain computer interface with a virtual walking avatar may help those with gait disorders to regain control of their movements, a new study reports.
Gait variability in older adults could be a predictor of cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease. Researchers found higher gait variability was associated with lower cognitive performance and an accurate predictor of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers identify neuronal circuits in the spinal cord of mice which control the ability to produce alternating movements of the legs during walking.
Insufficient sleep can negatively affect walking, specifically how we control stride and gait. Those who experienced a lack of sleep demonstrated less control when they walked.
New research allows those with robotic controlled prosthetic legs to walk almost as fast as an able bodied person.
A new study reports that embarking on everyday activities, such as doing the laundry or washing dishes, provides more benefit to people with Parkinson's disease than occasional strenuous activity in helping to control their symptoms.
Researchers report the angiogenesis in the brain could be a cause of some of the intractable walking and balance difficulties associated with Parkinson's disease.
A common game system camera could be used as an effective means of evaluating gait and walking problems in people with multiple sclerosis.
A new study reports a connection between slowed walking speed and cognitive decline appears to arise in the right hippocampus. Researchers recommend older people may benefit if their doctors measure their walking speed and check for changes over time, which could be an early indicator of impending cognitive decline.
