ABSTRACT

The rapid rise of smartphones and interactive technology has led to a greater demand for multitasking during activities of daily living. While this is often a necessary activity, in combination with certain tasks it can have negative effects on health and safety. For example, the behavior has been shown to negatively impact the ability to drive, with a strong positive correlation between texting while driving and increased risk of automobile accidents. Another increasingly common daily activity in the lives of many is walking and texting. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is to date no review investigating the effects of texting while walking. The current review fills that gap by assessing the implemented methodologies and the outcome measures and compiling the findings of the retrieved papers. The current body of literature suggests that in young and healthy adults, walking while texting negatively influences pedestrian adherence to routine traffic safety behaviors such as looking both ways and maintaining attention on the environment. Furthermore, walking and texting causes decreased gait velocity, increased variability in gait cycle, decreased step length, and increased step width. Further research should focus on developing protocols that mimic this daily activity as closely as possible and report a set of concise, reliable, and thorough gait parameters. Furthermore, research should investigate the effects of dual-task conditions on demographics with less gait control and cognitive capacities in, for example, older adults.
