Table 3 Ranking of in-lab usual walking and in dual-task walking with respect to daily-living 30-s walking bouts*

From: Is every-day walking in older adults more analogous to dual-task walking or to usual walking? Elucidating the gaps between gait performance in the lab and during 24/7 monitoring

  In-lab usual walking In-lab dual-task walking
Step length 53.5 ± 23.1% 45.1 ± 22.9%
Gait speed 63.8 ± 23.3% 50.9 ± 25.4%
Step regularity 73.2 ± 26.6% 64.1 ± 27.5%
Stride regularity 72.3 ± 23.7% 62.1 ± 25.8%
Step time 63.8 ± 25.9% 55.1 ± 29.9%
Average 65.3 ± 24.5% 55.4 ± 26.3%
  1. *Entries are mean ± SD. The values indicate that among 50.9% of all daily-living walking bouts, gait speed was lower than that seen during in-lab dual-task walking, for example
