Determining incident dementia using motoric cognitive risk syndrome

Takeaway

  • Motoric Cognitive Risk syndrome (MCR) can be confirmed as a pre-dementia stage of incident dementia.

Why this matters

  • The prognostic value of MCR for dementia have mainly been studied in North America withno data being available for France.

  • Evaluating this association in the French population will give data that may confirm the relationship between MCR and incident dementia and elucidate the value of slow gate speed as a marker for assessing dementia risk.
