Effect of task constraint during independent gait of children with Down syndrome and typical development
The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of task constraint in the step length of the relative angle of internal ankle during independent gait of children with Down Syndrome (DS) and Typical Development (TD). Two children participated in the sample, whose task was to walk on a wooden platform in the flat and inclined surfaces. The results indicated that DS child was higher and less consistent in the two variables of analysis. Compared with TD child, was identified differences between the two children, emphasizing greater sensitivity of DS child to the restricted task.
