As part of the Ontario Neurodegenerative Research Initiative (ONDRI), the gait and balance platform is focused on identifying motor-cognitive profiles across five neurodegenerative diseases. This research will help dissect the cognitive and motor contribution in mobility and cognitive decline, progression to dementia syndromes, and future unfavourable outcomes including falls and mortality.
