Abstract

Cognitive abilities and gait with its physical parameters are important for mobility. There is clinically sound evidence that a reduction of gait speed can be seen as an early subclinical indicator of cognitive decline of even higher risk of onset of dementia. The dual-task paradigm is a method in which the older person has to simultaneously solve two different task. It is of utmost importance to identify older persons at risk of falls or onset of dementia. The dual-task paradigm seems to be an important method in this process.
