From: Pilot comparative effectiveness study of surface perturbation treadmill training to prevent falls in older adults

  SPTT (N = 25) Standard PT (N = 26) p-value
Number of PT Sessions    
  Mean 5.84 7.38 0.20
  Range 1 - 19 3 - 17  
Average Session Duration (min)    
  Mean 44.25 42.75 0.17
Mean Baseline Trip Level* 2.44 NA  
Mean Final Trip Level 3.44 NA  
  1. * In the Surface-Perturbation Treadmill Training group, Trip level ranging from 1 (mildest) to 5 (most vigorous) refers to the magnitude of the perturbation successfully overcome without a step during that training session.
