According to a recent Canadian study, changes in the way you walk, can predict Alzheimer’s disease with 70% accuracy!

The study evaluated the walking patterns and brain health of 500 participants. Walking patterns were measured by 11 parameters that were formed in 4 groups: rhythm, pace, variability and postural control. The researchers found out that only a high gait variability was related to a lower brain performance of people with Alzheimer’s disease. A gait variability means the ‘stride to stride’ changes in distance and timing that happen when we walk.

The researchers explained that our walking patterns depend on the cortical brain control, which is also responsible for the cognitive processes. That is why any decline in motor function can be a good predictor of a cognitive decline specifically for Alzheimer’s disease, which is the cortical cognitive disorder.
