From: Shedding light on walking in the dark: the effects of reduced lighting on the gait of older adults with a higher-level gait disorder and controls

Figure 1

Effects of near darkness on stride time, stride time variability, and swing time variability in the two groups. For both groups, the average stride time was not affected by the change in lighting (p > 0.37). During walking in near darkness, variability measures were not significantly changed in the healthy controls (p > 0.29), but in the patients, stride time variability (p = 0.005) and swing time variability (p < 0.001) became significantly larger, compared to the values measured normal lighting.
