We investigated the ability of accelerometer measurements to evaluate gait balance in Mt. Fuji (3776m).
This study suggest that the factors of gait balance were gait condition (descending) , AMS score.
We examined gait condition in trekking course at Mt. Fuji summit. Furthermore, we investigated about the factors of trekking condition (weight load, trekking pole) in trekking course at Mt. Fuji summit.
