walked on a treadmill without holding the handrails with self-selected speeds for two consecutive walking sessions of 30 min. The self-selected walking speed was achieved by allowing the subjects to change the speed of the treadmill according to their perceived level of comfort. They could stop the

The VBW is expected to increase the cognitive demand of walking, as it requires attention to control each leg

Moderate intensity was anchored 12 to 13 on Borg rating of perceived exertion (RPE) scale. 13 Participants rested for 10 minutes in between exercise bouts. Low-impact exercise such as walking has the potential to evoke muscle damage in
