Did you know that how you walk can indicate how healthy your brain is? Studies show how someone walks and how fast can be an early predictor of future falls, frailty, dementia and even life expectancy. According to the Cleveland Clinic, by age 60, 15% of people will have an abnormal gait, a number that jumps to 80% once we hit 85.

On this episode of the DocTalks Podcast, host Ian Gillespie chats with St. Joseph's Dr. Manuel Montero-Odasso, a world-renowned geriatrician and scientist with the Gait and Brain Lab at Parkwood Institute, about his teams work to study gait and provide interventions to delay diseases like dementia.
