Abstract
Gait is a complex motor activity associated with a precise synergy of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. It also involves the use of cognitive functions.The aim of the paper is to evaluate the influence of cognitive tests performed at various levels of difficulty on gait biomechanics. The said evaluation was carried out with the use of a three-dimensional BTS SMART system. The study comprised of 53 women, the average age was 64.5?6.7 years (age range: 47-79). The study was carried out with the use of a BTS SMART system ? a system for comprehensive gait analysis. An analysis of gait parameters was performed during free gait and during gait combined with the performance of simple and complex cognitive tests.Performance of cognitive tests during gait resulted in a statistically significant extension of the left and right foot gait cycle, shortening of the length of steps made with the right extremity, reduction of speed of swings made with the left and right extremity and reduction of gait speed. Some of the above changes were recorded only with regard to more difficult tests.Performance of cognitive tests during gait hinders, to a statistically significant degree, gait biomechanics. An increase in the level of difficulty of cognitive tasks only amplifies these disorders.
