According to a recent study, there has been no ideal way for healthcare providers to measure walking ability, since it involves more than just walking speed. It also is about how you deal with your environment (such as uneven pavement) and demands on your attention (such as traffic, other pedestrians, and street crossings).
"We're thrilled to have been chosen to work with the City Football Group, integrating our facial recognition at walking speed solution into their elite programming," said Mary Haskett, CEO and co-founder of Blink Identity.
It is hardly the first study holding up walking speed as a powerful factor that appears to boost - and determine - our health.
Researchers have also shown that transplanting zombie cells into young mice basically made them act older: their maximum walking speed slowed down, and their muscle strength and endurance decreased.
Observing how patients walk also serves as a way to track people over time to see if there is any decline or improvement in walking speed."
But in the case of the male participants, the distance covered in their 15-minute walks, and their mean walking speed, increased more significantly in the gum-chewing trial.
They assessed participant's walking speed, and whether or not the participants developed dementia after the tests.
'Since reduced walking speed is a marker of limited mobility, which has been linked to decreased physical activity, we assume that fast walkers in the study are also fast walkers in real life,' she added.
(2005) found ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) to be matched by simultaneous deflections in carbohydrate (CHO) oxidation rate in healthy subjects; suggesting that walking speed may be determined by a drive to conserve CHO, mediated through exertional symptoms.
Results indicate that MMSE variability was not explained by morphological (i.e., absolute muscle mass, appendicular skeletal muscle mass, Janssen index, and Baumgartner index) or functional (i.e., walking speed, SPPB, and sit-to-stand) parameters.
Combining walking with concurrent cognitive tasks will typically degrade overall task performance (i.e., cognitive and motor performances combined), as evidenced by a lower walking speed, poorer walking-adaptability performance (e.g., obstacle avoidance), and/or poorer cognitive-task performance.
To attenuate the impact forces, one body would elicit larger knee and ankle joint flexion at the high walking speed condition compared with the regular speed condition.
