    The association between fear of falling and smoothness of lower trunk oscillation in gait varies according to gait speed in community-dwelling older adults

    Fear of falling (FoF) is common in community-dwelling older adults. FoF and increased walking speed are associated with lower trunk oscillation during gait in older adults. We hypothesized that older adults wi...
