Previous literature mainly introduced cognitive functions to explain performance decrements in dual-task walking, ie, changes in dual-task locomotion are attributed to limited cognitive information processing capacities. In this study, we enlarge existing literature and investigate whether leg muscular capacity plays an additional role in children's dual-task walking performance. To this end, we had prepubescent children (mean age: 8.7±0.5 years, age range: 7–9 years) walk in single task (ST) and while concurrently conducting an …
