    Hi Dr Martens,

    This work is fascinating, but is it really possible for someone here in Australia to be involved in your research? Helen D

    Thank you. Very interesting applying to self. I agree that the freezing at times may save me falling and may allow time for my brain to adjust to then step safety. I notice shuffle before I go through the door way or down one step which I think might be my brain automatically preparing to line up feet to step but which I try to stop them step decively.
