Background: Clinical trials often report significant mobility differences between neurotypical and atypical groups, however, these analyses often do not determine which measures are capable of discriminating between groups. Additionally, indirect evidence supports the notion that some mobility impaired populations demonstrate similar mobility deficits. Thus, the current study aimed to provide a comprehensive analysis of three distinct aspects of mobility (walking, turning, and balance) to determine which variables were significantly different and were also able to discriminate between neurotypical older adults (OA) and middle-aged people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS), and between middle-aged neurotypical adults and PwMS.
