Dynamic steady-state balance (i.e., 10-m walking test) was also examined while performing a concurrent attention-demanding cognitive or motor interference task. The cognitive interference task comprised an arithmetic task in which the participants loudly recited serial subtractions by three, starting from a randomly selected number between 300 and 900 given by the experimenter [35]. The motor interference task required participants to hold two interlocked sticks steadily in front of their body. One stick was held in each hand, with the elbow in 90-degree flexion. Each stick had a ring at the end with a diameter of four cm, and the rings were interlocked [36]. The participants were advised not to let the rings touch each other. When the dual-task methodology was used, participants were instructed to give equal priority to both tasks in order to create real-life conditions [37].
