The Discriminant Value of Phase-Dependent Local Dynamic Stability of Daily Life Walking in Older Adult Community-Dwelling Fallers and Nonfallers

Table 1

The gait features contained in the three predictor matrices used in the partial least square discriminatory analysis (PLS-DA) of elderly fallers and nonfallers. The gait features written in italic style are the same features used in Weiss et al. (2013) [13].
