iDTW: an Instrumented Dual Task Walking test for early detection of neurodegenerative vs. microvascular gait impairment

The dual-task walking (DTW) paradigm, where the individual performs an attention-demanding task while walking is an important assessment tool in neurology. Based on wearable technology and advanced algorithms, this project aims to develop and validate an instrumented DTW (iDTW) assessment tool allowing the objective, detailed and concurrent assessment of cognitive and motor tasks, and their relationship in specific clinical conditions.
