Abstract This longitudinal study aims to compare the role of stride time variability (STV) and EDSS for predicting falls in 50 patients with multiple sclerosis with low disability. 21.7 % developed falls (follow-up: 22 months). STV (IRR: 1.73, 95 % CI: 1.23-2.41, p = 0.001) and EDSS (IRR: 2.29, 95 % CI: 1.35-3.90, p = 0.002) were associated with the number of falls. Adding STV to EDSS improves the predictive power of the model from 21 to 26 %, but not adding EDSS to STV.
