A large proportion of falls in older people occurs when walking. Most studies have recently demonstrated correlation between the variations in spatiotemporal gait parameters and fall risk in elderly and in several diseases. The investigators objective is to analyse this parameters in population with gait stability disorders (post-stroke patients and fallers) to identify the most valuable and to develop/test a conglomerate stability score.
Temporal-spatial gait parameters will be recorded in subjects aged 65-80 years : 30 healthy people, 30 patients at least one year post-stroke, and 30 fallers while walking on an electronic walkway GAITRite® at self-selected speed.
