Effects of a training program using a perturbation treadmill on modular control and dynamic stability during walking
While aging falls often leads to injuries and hence physical and psychological restrictions for the person concerned. Reducing the rate of falls could therefore have the potential for increasing the quality of life while aging. There already exist diverse training programs that could prevent falls to a certain extent. However, since the mechanisms of falls are not fully understood, such programs are likely to have a strong potential for optimization. At this point this cumulative thesis will begin. At first the mechanisms associated with falls should be addressed. Therefore the effects of externally induced perturbations while walking on a treadmill on modular control and dynamic stability will be investigated. Subsequently, the training on the perturbation treadmill will be compared with a stability training under unstable conditions (“Berlin perturbation paradigm“) with regard to the effects on the fall frequency.
