Gait was assessed via a 30-m walk test. During this test, subjects were instructed to walk 30 m using their normal, comfortable walking speed while wearing six inertial sensors (OPAL inertial motion units; APDM, Portland, OR, USA) that were used to assess gait speed and stride length. One sensor was placed on the chest/sternum, one on the lower back (5th lumbar vertebra), one on each wrist, and one on top of each foot. In anticipation that some subjects may have existing medical conditions that would make multiple walking trials infeasible (e.g., pain during gait in the Users), only one walk was performed for all subjects.
