Gait and balance are essential for performing activities of daily living and attaining good quality of life (QoL). Prevalence of gait impairments increases with age, from 10% (60–69 years) to 60% in those over 80 years.1,2 Frailty due to increased age in combination with neurological (e.g. sensory ataxia, parkinsonism) or non-neurological (e.g. osteoarthritis) conditions further degrades the ability to walk and maintain balance and increases the risk of falls. Therefore, analyzing the way a person walks, referred as gait analysis, is an essential tool for clinical applications not only to diagnose different neurological condition, but also to monitor disease progression as it contributes to the understanding of underlying deficits.1
