Gait disorders are predisposing factors for falls. They are accessible to rehabilitation and can be analyzed using tools that collect spatio-temporal parameters of walking, such as the GAITRite mat. The objective of this retrospective study was to find differences between the spatio-temporal parameters in patients who had fallen compared to patients who did not fall in a population of older patients hospitalized in acute geriatrics department. Patients over 75 years were included. For each patient, spatio-temporal parameters were collected using the GAITRite mat. The patients were divided into two groups according to whether they had a history of fall. The spatio-temporal parameters were compared between the two groups and in relation to the general population. Sixty-seven patients, with an average age of 85.9 ± 6 years, were included. The patients had comorbidities, cognitive impairment and were polymedicated. The mean walking speed was 51.4 cm/s in non-fallers group and 47.3 cm/s in fallers group ( = 0.539), indicating pathological walking in comparison with the general population of the same age (average 100 cm/s). No association was found between the spatio-temporal parameters and fall, probably linked to many confounding factors such as the pathogenicity of walking of our patients and their comorbidities.
