variability of minimum foot clearances (local minimum foot-ground distance during swing phases) or minimum toe clearance (MTC) may be an even more promising gait parameter for gauging gait control and perhaps eventually the risk of falling. In a recent review ( Barrett, Mills, & Begg, 2010 ), it was suggested

tripping is the gait cycle event minimum toe clearance (MTC; Figure  1 ). In normal gait, following toe off, the swing foot exhibits an initial maximum vertical displacement (Mx1), after which, approximately halfway through the swing phase, the lowest clearance point subsequent to Mx1 is seen—MTC. At

populations. 15 Common metrics used to quantify normal gait mechanics are vertical ground reaction force (vGRF), stride length and width, minimum toe clearance, as well as ankle, knee, and hip angles and moments. Understanding whether walking while working impacts these metrics will provide more information

minimum toe clearance, longer stance, and increased stance variability for the OB adults during the secondary executive functions tests, the generalization of this finding to cell phone texting while walking seems premature. Based on these considerations, the purpose of the present study was to assess to
