End date: 06/2010
Description: Ageing is characterized by functional changes in the sensory, neurological and musculoskeletal systems, affecting motor tasks including gait and postural balance: the main risk factors for falling. This research project aims at improving gait and postural balance thanks to a wearable non-invasive system that will generate small height and slope perturbations during active walking.
