  1. Measures related to fear of falling and general health in the adaptability treadmill (AT) group, conventional treadmill (CT) group and usual physical therapy (UPT) group at baseline (T0), directly after (T1), four weeks after (T2) and 12 months (T3) after the intervention
  2. P values for group differences were obtained using
  3. aOne-Way ANOVA
  4. bANCOVA with baseline performance as covariate
  5. cKruskal-Wallis test
