Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 4764 0
High level Mobility scale (HiMat) is the primary outcome.
Timepoint [1] 4764 0
All participants will be assessed prior to baseline to be able to stratify the population on mobility performance and also basic balance and safety. So this is the baseline stratification period the week before entry into the study. Then post intervention will be performed at 8 weeks.
Secondary outcome [1] 8045 0
