Scott, D., McLaughlin, P., Nicholson, G., Ebeling, P., Stuart, A., Kay, D. & Sanders, K. (2015). Changes in gait performance over several years are associated with recurrent falls status in community-dwelling older women at high risk of fracture. Age and Ageing,(2), 287-293.

Background: Gait analysis is a recommended geriatric assessment for falls risk and sarcopenia; however, previous research utilises measurements at a single time point only. It is presently unclear how changes in gait over several years influence risk of recurrent falls in older adults.
