Abstract

This study aimed to analyze gait in elderly people with exercise habits and thereby elucidate its characteristics. Our results suggest that due to the habituation associated with training, the gait in elderly people with exercise habits is consciously modified to achieve motional effects as high as that achieved during walking training.
