The study consisted of observing 26 volunteers while they walked. Each person walked at a comfortable pace in a straight line for a distance of approximately eight and a half meters while doing one of three tasks: walking without using the phone, walking reading a text on the smartphone, or walking by writing on it. . The researchers evaluated body movements using a three-dimensional analysis system.
The conclusions were that when walking, chatting and to a lesser extent reading texts, they modified the movements of the body compared to a normal walk, because when the participants were writing they walked more slowly, deviated more from the straight line and moved less the neck as “if they were robots.”
