Abstract

The purpose of the study to clarify the relationship the related motor function and features of walking of vertebral compression fracture patients as gait index labile and regularity calculated from the acceleration signal which is obtained using a three-axial accelerometer. The study subjects were 19 healthy elderly persons (mean age 67.8±4.9) and 13 vertebral compression fracture patients. Accelerations were measured preferred walking a three-axial accelerometer mounted on the third lumbar spinous process in the vicinity. By calculating the gait index from the data of one gait cycle, we investigated the relationship between the motor function of the other and features of walking of vertebral compression fracture patients group. Motor function was significantly correlated with the labile of vertebral compression fracture patients group, it was one foot standing eye-closed. There was no motor function showed significant correlation with the regularity of vertebral compression fracture patients group. Vertebral compression fracture patients group was significantly higher in the labile of the vertical direction and significantly lower all items of motor function than healthy elderly persons group. One foot standing as time extension, labile of antero-posterior direction increases, vertebral compression fracture patients was suggested labile of the vertical direction is large and decline motor function.
