Ataxic Wide-based Gait

The gait is wide-based and the patient requires assistance from the physician for stabilization. The patient cannot turn within one or two steps but requires multiple steps. The physician then asks the patient to perform tandem-walking at the end of the video but the patient is unable to do so due to severe instability. The patient exhibits ataxia which could be due to a cerebellar problem or deficits in proprioception.
