In older adults, research into wearable technology may address the frequent occurrence of falls and decline in walking-related motor skill calls. Unlike simple gait measurements, such as speed, acceleration gait measures (AGMs) can enrich information about the quality of the translation of the body motion during walking. In this poster, we will categorize the motor skill aspects of walking and map them to trunk-AGMs, spurring the utility of AGMs in clinical practice and research.
Learning Objective: In this review, we will categorize seven motor skill aspects of walking and review how trunk-acceleration gait measures can be mapped to various motor skill aspects of walking.
