Watch where you walk: Human visual perception and motion of the lower limbs while navigating obstacles in a fatigued state

Objective: This work is geared towards investigating how fatigue following high-intensity exercise impacts individuals’ visual abilities and gait mechanics during obstacle navigation (such as stepping up, over, and around them). Such information helps us better understand why people in occupations such as firefighting are at a greater risk for trips and falls when they are physically fatigued.
