Since regularities of gait patterns are determined by neural and mechanical parameters such as cortical activity, muscular contractions and joint kinematics [31], it is expected that manipulating the cognitive demands in a walking task could affect inter-joint coordination due to the changes in joints' degrees of freedom (mobility).
