Introduction: Gait speed worsens with the presence of obesity, and it is a powerful marker of functional dependence. So, gait speed could be a factor that improves or worsen the relation between obesity and dependence in activities of daily living (ADL). However, to date this role has not been examined nor do we know the minimum gait speed threshol...
