Case28.17 ± 2.376.30 ± 1.165.90 ± 1.52
Control29.42 ± 1.567.40 ± 0.846.50 ± 1.18
Total28.79 ± 2.066.85 ± 1.146.20 ± 1.36

For walking count analysis, 24 data points from 2 walking tests in each of 12 participants were used. For stair count analysis, 20 data points from two stair tests in each of 5 cases and 5 controls were used.
