Negotiating Narrowing Paths and Lateral Maneuvers in Older Adults

This study will identify how low fall-risk and moderate/high fall-risk older adults negotiate complex, real-world-like walking tasks where they have to make decisions related to avoiding risk of falling. Participants will walk in a virtual reality environment where they will have to navigate various narrowing paths and make lateral maneuvers to switch paths etc. We will quantify how older adults with different levels of fall risk exhibit differences in their performance in these tasks. This work is important in the context of better understanding how and why older adults fall.
