|Balance; Distorted||Behavioral: Dual task balance test|
Investigators aim to recruit a minimum of 30 participants aged 65 years or above through convenience sampling at an senior activity centre in the Municipality of Aalborg. Participants inclusion critiria is age about 65, the ability to stand for 30 seconds unaided and the ability to walk 8 meters. Exclusion critiria is severe cognitive impairment (e.g., dementia).
Each participant will undergo two testdays separated by approximately two weeks. Both testdays have the same number and order of tests and are placed approximately the same time of the day. At the first testday descriptive information for each participant is collected.
The Nintendo Wii Balance Board (Nintendo, Kyoto, Japan) is a small portable force plate measuring sway ellipse area and sway speed.
Will include intra-rater reliability for each test and agreement between the two. Calculations of balance/gait costs will be made to unify the unit and to compare the two tests to each other. Results shown by intraclass correlation coeffients and Bland Altman plots.

- Behavioral: Dual task balance test
Participants will be conducting two dual task tests; an 8m gait test and a Wii Balance Board test with simultaneous various cognitive tests.
- Intra-rater reliability for the gait test and the WBB test. [ Time Frame: Through study completion, app. 8 months. ]Comparing the dual task costs for each test between test and retest. Assessments through intraclass correlation coefficient and reportings in accordance with Guidelines for Reporting Reliability and Agreement Studies (GRRAS).
- Agreement between the gait test and the WBB test as dual task measurements. [ Time Frame: Through study completion, app. 8 months. ]Comparing the dual task costs between the gait test and the Wii Balance Board test. Data assessment through Bland Altman plots and reportings in accordance with Guidelines for Reporting Reliability and Agreement Studies (GRRAS).
- Descriptive data. [ Time Frame: Through study completion, app. 8 months. ]Qustionnairies consisting of Tilburg Frailty Indicator, Vulnerable Elders Survey 13, Short Falls Efficacy Scale, previous falls, medications and Orientations-Memory-Concentrations test. Data assessment through histograms and Shapiro Wilk tests and reported by means and standard deviations, medians and interquartile ranges, and numbers and percentages.
