Table 4 Stepwise logistic regression analyses comparing fallers (n = 119) and non-fallers (n = 82) on all predictor variables adjusting for agea

From: Foot and ankle characteristics associated with falls in adults with established rheumatoid arthritis: a cross-sectional study

  Odds ratio (95 % confidence interval) P value
Age 0.99 (0.96-1.02) 0.500
Vascular disease 3.22 (1.17-8.88) 0.024
Peak plantar pressure midfoot 1.12 (1.00-1.25) 0.046
(for each 20kPa increase)
Foot Impairment FISAP 1.17 (1.05-1.31) 0.005
(for each 3 point increase)
  1. aAssociations with P < 0.05 are shown
