Recent studies have revealed that the usage of mobile phones while walking has a negative impact on its quality, directly impacting the length of the step and the angle of the foot. This implies that smartphone users have a weaker cycle of walking compared to those who do not use smartphones, and their speed is relatively low because of the impact of texting while walking. Thus these data analyze the impact of smartphone use on walking quality. The experimental method used was designed under three conditions: walking, reading, and texting while walking, with participants required to walk in a 15 meters corridor with no barriers while using their mobile phone in three phases. The experiment was conducted using PODOSMART technology. The data that used from this technology were the length of the walking cycle, cadence, speed and the symmetry of legs.
