The purpose of this study is to make available a fall risk assessment for stroke patients during walking using an accelerometer. We assessed gait parameters, normalized root mean squared acceleration (NRMSA) and berg balance scale (BBS) values. Walking dynamics were better reflected in terms of the risk of falls during walking by NRMSA compared to the BBS.
