Table 2 Mean (SD) Gait Characteristics stratifying by past year fall history

From: Too much or too little step width variability is associated with a fall history in older persons who walk at or near normal gait speed

  No falls N = 422 ≥ 1 fall N = 81 p-value
Gait Variability CV* (%)
   Step width 17.8 (16.4) 21.8 (22.6) .06
   Step length 6.3 (3.0) 6.5 (3.1) .62
   Stance time 4.9 (2.0) 5.2 (2.1) .33
   Step time 4.7 (1.8) 4.7 (1.8) .90
